Manufacturing motors
    • Install variable-speed drives in your fans and pumps

    • Invest in high-efficiency motors, which may qualify for tax relief through the Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme

    • Maintain motor systems by lubricating them and checking the belt’s tightness and alignment

    Reducing motor speed by 20% can reduce energy consumption by up to 50%

    Compressed air
    • Consider reducing the operating pressure of your compressed air

    • A 1-bar reduction could save about 7% of the energy

    • Switch compressors off when not in use

    A compressor that’s left on but not used consumes up to 70% of its full load power

    Factory heating and insulation
      • Recirculate the heat created by production lines to warm your premises

      • Ensure your boiler is regularly serviced and tuned

      • Check the insulation on hot and cold pipework and valve flanges

      • Use lids on process tanks, especially out of hours, to prevent evaporation loss

      12% of all the energy used by the manufacturing industry is for heating buildings

      Factory lighting
      • Encourage staff to switch lights off when they’re not needed

      • Use movement detectors, time switches and daylight sensors

      • Label switches so it’s easy to see which one controls which light

      • Make the best use of natural light by opening blinds in the day

      • Replace traditional light bulbs with LED ones

      LED bulbs could reduce the electricity you use for lighting by up to 80%

      Refrigeration
        • Check door seals – a faulty one could increase a unit's power use by 11%

        • Using too much refrigerant charge can increase energy costs by over 10%

        • Dirty refrigeration condensers can increase costs by around 26%

        When buying new refrigerators, AA++ rated units have the lowest running costs
