02/2009 - Let BOGE estimate your potential energy savings!

Most companies will be feeling the impact of the current economic climate not least through spiralling input costs such as electricity. However, businesses could significantly reduce the impact of rising input costs by optimising their energy usage. One area where initial energy savings can usually be made at no or low cost to the user is with the compressed air system. And, compressed air is actually one of the easiest technologies with which to generate energy savings!

By undergoing an audit which evaluates energy consumption within all areas of the compressed air system from generation, treatment to distribution and process usage the user can identify where energy savings can be made. This may be something simple such as repairing air leaks within the airline pipework system to implementing a low carbon technology such as a frequency controlled screw compressor to more energy efficiently meet fluctuations in compressed air demand.

To help end users get the ball rolling, BOGE has developed an online energy survey. By providing some basic information on the existing compressed air system, BOGE can estimate how and where potential energy savings can be made. This service is free and comes with no obligation! In many cases it may provide that crucial first step in creating sustainable compressed air related energy savings.

End users who would like BOGE to estimate their potential energy savings should visit the 'Energy Savings Solutions' section of www.boge.co.uk and follow the link 'Let BOGE estimate your energy savings!'

The website also provides useful information on where energy savings can be made and reviews a number of low carbon technologies available to the compressed air user.
