Energy Management Principles - Applications, Benefits, Savings 2nd edition

 

This is a comprehensive guide to the fundamental principles and systematic processes of maintaining and improving energy efficiency, and reducing waste.

  • Provides extensive coverage of all major fundamental energy management principles
  • Applies general principles to all major components of energy use such as HVAC, electrical end use and lighting, industrial processes, and transportation
  • Describes how to initiate an energy management program for a building, a process, a farm or an industrial facility

Fully revised and updated with analysis of world energy utilization, incentives and utility rates, and new content highlighting how energy efficiency can be achieved through 1 of 16 outlined principles and programs. With cost effective analysis, case studies and global examples, guidance on building and site auditing this fully revised edition provides both a theoretical and practical basis for efficient energy use. The potential for reducing fuel and electricity use, potential economic savings, and greenhouse gas reductions are outlined. Energy Management Principles - Applications, Benefits, Savings 2nd edition, is a comprehensive guide to the fundamental principles and systematic processes of maintaining and improving energy efficiency, and reducing waste.

  • Energy Management Principles - Applications, Benefits, Savings 2nd ed.Craig B. Smith and Kelly E. Parmenter. In 1980 Craig Smith wrote the first edition of this book, (See yellow cover to the left). It was seven years after the first Arab Oil Embargo and the world of energy had undergone major changes. Oil prices had shot up from $3 per barrel and natural gas was rumored to be in short supply and its use was being curtailed. There was world-wide interest in ways to use energy more efficiently and to reduce waste. Over the next 4 decades Smith tracked the amazing advances in energy efficiency—high efficiency motors and appliances, LED lighting, and advanced controls. In parallel, the cost of solar and wind power dropped dramatically. Most important, an urgent need to reduce fossil fuel consumption has become apparent—climate change occasioned by global warming. With this, the need for an updated book became apparent.
