Many companies can reduce energy costs by reducing their peak electricity demand each month. Utilities encourage this with different tariff structures and financial incentives. Attendees of this workshop will learn how to measure, monitor and control peak energy use as well as understand how their energy consumption profile impacts their bottom line. The workshop also covers:
• Units of electrical measure and utility billing
• How to cost justify reductions in peak demand
• Utility tariff components and how they impact your costs
• Which systems impact peak demand
• How to adjust your load profile and control peak demand
• The pros and cons of different types of distributed generation
