We’ve seen industrial facilities that produce excellent energy efficiency results with equipment that would charitably be called “standard efficiency.”
At the other extreme are sites that have all the latest energy efficiency technology, but without a behavior-based change, their consumption is still high. The difference can boil down to the fact that the first group isn’t simply relying on modern machines and technology to drive energy savings. Instead, they have a behavior-based approach to manage their energy consumption effectively by educating and fully engaging their employees and management.
Cascade understands that the right mix of technology, strategy, and education are the cornerstones of any cutting-edge industrial energy efficiency program. We offer several innovative and complementary behavior-based services, including:
- Strategic energy management
- O&M oriented tune-ups
- Technician energy coaching
- Energy project manager funding
We provide training, support and coaching as employees implement changes and develop passion and confidence. In some instances there may be large-scale change involving the start-up of a comprehensive top-to-bottom energy management program. In other instances, the project may be extremely focused where a Cascade engineer and an operator team up to methodically fine-tune a complex mechanical system, tackling every low cost and no cost energy saving opportunity they find. In either case, Cascade employs proven methods, technologies, key software tools, and the kind of personalized coaching that motivates employees to take action and realize significant energy savings from the top down.
