Knowing how to operate an industrial system or manage an industrial facility is one thing. Knowing exactly how those systems and facilities consume energy, and how to fine-tune and proactively manage them for maximum efficiency and cost savings, is quite another.
Cascade offers a variety of online, classroom, and field trainings to educate your workforce on driving industrial energy efficiency. With 20 years of hands-on experience, Cascade has a wealth of technical expertise spanning equipment, systems, processes, and industrial sectors. Whether you choose half- or full-day courses or ongoing operator and manager coaching, your staff will get more than information and education—they’ll receive actionable training and skill development that can be put to use in your facilities.
Energy efficiency classes for plant managers, operators, contractors, and vendors
Improving energy efficiency doesn’t just require new equipment or capital investments. In fact, the most significant factor in maximizing energy performance and cost savings is often education.
Cascade offers partial and full-day classes that teach the fundamentals of industrial energy efficiency. Topics can include industrial equipment and controls, and ways to optimize operations and maintenance (O&M) procedures to maximize energy and cost savings. Educational case studies are highlighted, bridging theory with real world examples.
Cascade’s energy efficiency classes are perfect for plant managers, operators, contractors, and vendors, and can be tailored to specific industrial systems and sectors. In addition to actionable information that can be immediately applied on the job, attendees receive continuing education units (CEUs).
Hands-on energy efficiency training at your facility
Classroom settings can teach the fundamentals of energy efficiency. But hands-on coaching—with your operators, using your equipment and systems—can ensure that the fundamentals are applied and maximized in your facility.
Cascade’s operator coaching programs combine classroom learning with hands-on training. Your operators receive one-on-one mentoring with a Cascade energy engineering expert, often as part of a larger peer group. In addition to monthly hands-on coaching over a roughly eight month span, Cascade provides an energy information system (EIS) that measures and tracks the positive changes being made in your facility.
Everything we do is focused on best practice education and implementation—identifying, applying, and tracking a number of energy efficiency improvements in your environment. In addition to achieving measurable energy and cost savings in the short-term, your operators will be empowered to recognize, implement, and maintain energy saving opportunities over the long haul.
Industrial energy experts for your conferences, events, and retreats
Cascade’s energy efficiency experts regularly speak at conferences, industry events, and corporate retreats. These speaking engagements cover energy efficiency for a variety of industrial sectors and systems—often focusing on a core topic such as refrigeration, compressed air, or hydraulics.
If you’d like to have an industrial energy efficiency guest speaker at your event, feel free to contact us. Schedules and precedence prevent us from participating at every event, but we are always happy to explore the possibilities.
