New York Fashion Warehouse Saves Energy and Money with Lighting Upgrades
This E Source case study from the warehouses sector was created for the Business Energy Advisor.
Energy costs for some warehouses are more than 10% of their annual revenue. Warehouse operators can take advantage of many methods to reduce energy bills through improving efficiency in their facilities.
Walk-In Cooler Controllers
Almost all coolers and freezers run their fans continuously, even though, on average, full airflow is only required about half of the time. By putting a stop to this, controllers can reduce energy use by as much as 60%. Learn what the options are and if these controls make sense for you.
Although they are often less efficient than conventional lighting systems, remote-source lighting systems (often referred to as fiber-optic or light-pipe systems) have some unique performance characteristics. Find out how these systems operate and whether they're a good choice for you.
By heating objects directly, radiant heating can lead to energy savings because occupants usually feel comfortable at lower overall HVAC temperatures. This article discusses the various radiant heater configurations and performance so you can make the best choice for your application.
Occupancy sensors have the potential to cut energy consumption by reducing the operating time and output of lighting systems, but a wide variety of issues need to be considered in order to achieve persistent savings. Learn about the factors you need to know before installing an occupancy sensor.
Lighting controls are primarily used to turn lights off when they are not needed or dim them so that they produce no more light than necessary. Learn about the various options so you can choose the right system for your application.
LED technology continues to improve; these lamps are becoming more common in business settings. Learn about the best applications and potential energy savings for this emerging and increasingly cost-effective technology.
The options for lighting high-bay spaces are expanding. Learn about the various technologies and how to determine which is most cost-effective for your application.
Most fans operate continuously while a building is occupied and represent a major source of energy consumption. This article explains what types of fans are available, controls that can help reduce energy use, and how to make the best choice for your building.
In dry climates, evaporative cooling can fully satisfy building cooling loads, and it can also be applied cost-effectively when integrated with conventional chiller systems. Learn about the types of evaporative cooling, system performance, and choosing the best system for your application.
