The problems with tracking energy performance
Energy is a major element of your cost base (10-20% of gross margin) but it can sometimes feel like there is no way to control it.
Lab tests are problematic
Significant improvements can be made in plant performance with relatively light touch interventions, i.e. interventions based on analytics, controls, optimisation and small projects.
Really understand what drives energy consumption
While the overall predictive models shows something is off, it does not tell you exactly where to look. In depth models of each of the major components (DT, distillation, extractor, conditioners etc) must be built to get this insight.
