Ascott Hotel, Makati, Philippines

Energy demand is on the rise and so are federal and international regulations requiring the reduction in our global carbon footprint.  To do this, a variable energy management solution is paramount.  This starts by better managing motors that control pump and HVAC systems.

With correct installation and know-how, the facilities can achieve energy savings of up to 70%, depending on the type of installation.  The highest potential energy savings can be found on pumps, fans and compressors.

At the end of the training, participants should be able to:

  • Put into practice the implementation of an energy efficient building or facility
  • Identify potential application of variable frequency drives to achieve significant savings
  • Increase competitiveness, protecting installations while reducing energy expenditure, and decreasing maintenance costs are just some of the demands industrial enterprises are faced with every day
  • Enhance productivity, achieve energy efficiency in motors by comparing the energy consumption with and without a variable frequency drives
  • Calculate the savings, ton of C02 and estimate how long it will take to get the return on investment
