Through decades of experience, we have determined that “on average” 50% of the total energies consumed in Industrial Processes are Wasted Energies.

Our strategic partner (MPC) has the expertise to dive down deep into the energies being consumed by various industrial processes in industries such as :  steel and aluminum  / refineries / automobile parts suppliers / tire manufacturers / chemical companies / distilleries / agricultural processing (ethanol, soybeans, corn, flour) / poultry, beef, and pork processors / and a host of other food manufacturers.  By utilizing their proprietary software, AURA, we install energy-related data tag feeds from existing computerized control equipment for a particular process.  This energy usage data is only a one-way data transfer to our monitoring software and we never have any interaction with the process controls.  Our AURA Software allows us graph and benchmark existing energies being consumed versus new energy use profiles which eventually will show the energies that “should be being used” in the process, allowing us to quantify the energy savings that are occurring.  After existing energy profiles are established, we work with the in-plant operators over a period of 10 to 20 weeks to narrow down operating parameters and procedures that can come close to saving 60% of the above 50% wasted energies or 30% of the total energy consumed.  Then, if desired for the remaining 40% of the wasted energies or 20% of the total energy consumed, in the future, our client may wish to use the capital investment to capture this portion of the savings.

Many of our case histories are saving over a million dollars in energy costs per process per year with the option of no out-of-pocket costs to our clients.

Large Plant Electric & Process Heating Requirementscombined heat and power

Often called Co-Generation, Combined Heat & Power (CH&P) Systems can provide all or a portion of electric power (onsite) and process heat (steam or hot water) at the same time. Absorption Cooling Chillers can also be powered from the heat. In other words, CH&P can provide both electric power and process heat from the same fuel……Read More

Energy Architects for over 38 years has been negotiating lower electric, natural gas, and water / sewer utility rates for hundreds of customers and the total savings created for our clients has now exceeded 580 million dollars. Whether it be through new rates, by creating credits or discounts, and or by eliminating taxes or special charges on monthly utility billings, Energy Architects has been successful in saving monies for its clients over 75% of the time. Just focusing on electric utilities, we have found that electric companies with similar costs of generation can have a wide disparity in the industrial rates that are offered where even ½ a cent in higher total costs per kWh of energy can be responsible for increasing an electric bill by several hundred thousand dollars per month. In addition to rate negotiations, Energy Architects has been responsible for installing over 40 MW of standby generation in order to take full advantage of special utility rate offerings.

Many industries have heat recovery options that may not have been explored.HEAT RECLAIM

There are billions of Btu’s per hour of heat energy that are being thrown away through “smokestacks” which translate to millions of dollars of potential natural gas purchased energy savings if much of this heat energy can be captured by way of heat recovery through specialized heat exchangers……Read More

Heat RecoveryDon’t throw away heated or cooled conditioned air from such areas as clean rooms or hospitals that have high fresh air requirements due to potential contamination. These commercial & industrial facilities may have heat or cold temperature reclaim possibilities by using Cross flow heat exchangers that transfer heat or cold temperatures from exiting air flows to incoming fresh air make-ups…..Read More
MULTISTACK CHILLERSHigh Tech Multistack Chillers with MagLev Oil Free Compressors are revolutionizing comfort and process cooling applications. Compared to conventional water cooled chillers Multistack Chillers can save up to 35% on electrical energy input and compared to air cooled chillers, Multistack Chillers can save up to 50% on the electrical energy input…..Read More
GASIFIERSVery efficient Downdraft Gasifiers are now able to take an organic waste stream and convert it into a SynGas that can then be burned to create a high quality heat source to do useful work. Process water or oil can be heated to run an ORC to generate electricity 24/7. With larger systems steam can be generated to run steam turbines that generate larger quantities of electricity…..Read More
Much electric energy is being wasted with air compressor systems in plants.
In many larger industries, the air compressor system can amount to 20% to 30% of the total electrical kW load in the plant…..Read More AIR COMPRESSORS
Variable Frequency Drive (2) 12-18-13Many motors and are running at a constant speed, some even 24/7, with no variable speed capabilities which many times is not necessary.
Examples are fans and pumps. If the speed or rpm’s of a pump or fan can be reduced to less than full load requirements, for every unit of speed reduction, the energy is reduced by the power of 3…..Read More
High Tech Ceramic Coatings Can Prevent Substantial Heat Loss/ Heat Gain or Corrision.
Ceramic Roofing Example 12-18-13
Ceramic coatings installed on boilers, pipes, tanks, walls, ovens and even metal or membrane roofs used in conjunction with world class rust preventatives will greatly reduce unwanted heat gain or heat loss. Ceramic coatings are available for application on a wide range of surface temperatures which can provide major savings on natural gas & electric energy costs…..Read More
