Description

Introduction to Industrial Energy Efficiency: Energy Auditing, Energy Management, and Policy Issues offers a systemic overview of all key-aspects involved in improving industrial energy efficiency in various industry sectors. It is organized in three parts, each dealing with a particular perspective needed to form a complete view of related issues. Sections focus on energy auditing and improved energy efficiency of companies from a predominantly technical perspective, shed light on energy management and factors that hinder or drive the adoption of energy efficiency practices in the manufacturing industry, and explore energy efficiency policy instruments and how they are designed, implemented and evaluated.

Practicing engineers in the field of energy efficiency, engineering and energy researchers coming into the field, and graduate students will find this book to be an invaluable reference on the fundamental knowledge they need to get started in this area.

Key Features

  • Provides, in one volume, a comprehensive overview of energy systems efficiency and management that is applied to various industrial processes
  • Explores operational measures for improvement, including case studies from varying countries and sectors
  • Discusses the barriers to, and driving forces for, improving energy efficiency in industrial settings, including technical, behavioral, organizational and policy aspects

Readership

Practicing engineers in the field of energy efficiency; engineering and energy researchers coming into the field; and graduate students. Industrial engineers, energy managers, energy consultants, and policy-makers
