The next industrial revolution is here. Is your company ready?

In the same way that computerized automation restructured the manufacturing industry, green technology is driving the next industrial revolution. Green technology is proven to effectively reduce operational costs and revitalize your profitability. It works because it achieves the principal objectives of the industry:

  • Increases Productivity and Efficiency
  • Improves Quality Control
  • Eliminates Wastes

Understanding what the future holds for this type of “green” optimization, and what you need to know to make a difference in your operation will help you orchestrate cost-saving efficiencies that will transform to your bottom line.

Commercial Energy Audits—ASHRAE Level I, II, and III

Energy audits identify potential energy conservation measures (ECMs) that will result in quantifiable waste and energy usage reductions. Depending on the level required for your operation, professional auditors will provide detailed descriptions of existing conditions and proposed ECMs, as well as projected cost estimates and ROI time frames. Common assessments include:

  • Lighting
  • HVAC Performance and Controls (especially unreliable EMS performance)
  • Compressed Air Systems
  • Process Steam and Heat Recovery Systems
  • Building Envelope Upgrades

By determining the amount of waste, and integrating green technology controls and products designed to regulate it, enterprises are able to significantly lower consumption rates and operating costs.


The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy reports on a number of next generation manufacturing processes. Green technology is enabling companies to capture and utilize waste heat for a primary or secondary power source. Develop sustainable practices by uncovering untapped energy, and using it to power your operation.

Systems retrofitting and optimization audits identify ways to:

  • Reduce Maintenance Costs
  • Extend the lifecycle and productivity of your equipment assets
  • Improve the air quality and comfort of your employees

Moreover, there are a number of certifications and tax-incentives available for companies who enact these type of policies and take actions to conserve energy, reduce carbon emissions, and integrate renewable energy solutions.
