The Role of Energy Efficiency in Industry

Copyright (c) 2010 Jamie Lyons

With energy bills increasing on a regular basis, and environmental concerns at the forefront of public conscience, many companies are looking to minimise resource wastage as much as possible.

The issue of energy efficiency and it’s contribution to the wider problem of climate change can not be underestimated. Ever increasing numbers of firms are making sustainability pledges in order to maintain a positive public image and also prepare for expected changes in legislation which will financially penalise companies that unduly waste resources or damage the environment. In conjunction with the positive benefits to profit to be garnered from minimised fuel bills, the argument for pro-active steps to minimise energy wastage is a particulalry compelling one.

One of the most effective means of reducing energy wastage is the prevention of heat loss in industrial environments. Although the general focus in this field is upon insulation, there are numerous circumstances in which other solutions must be sought to ensure maximum energy efficiency.

In many industrial environments set temperatures need to be maintained, and often these areas encounter a high level of footfall: as a consequence of the comings and goings of personnel, heating or cooling systems regularly must operate above their most efficient levels to maintain a constant temperature. Simply using doors between rooms of different temperature is an ineffective means of maintaining this constant, as every time the door is opened large quantities of cool or warm air enter the controlled temperature zone. With this in mind another solution must be sought to prevent heat loss in regularly accessed areas.

As is often the case, the simplest solution is the most effective means of reducing the impact of the problem of heat loss: PVC strip curtains. Strip curtains allow ease of access for those wishing to pass between temperature controlled zones whilst simultaneously retaining heat and minimising the entry of airborne contaminants.

The ultimate upside of the reduced heat loss attributable to the installation of PVC strip curtains is the environmental benefit. Many industrial processes are by their very nature likely to impact upon the environment, it is however the duty of the manufacturers to ensure that this impact is kept to an absolute minimum. By the implementation of seemingly minor steps against energy wastage, such as the installation of PVC strip curtains, companies can show that they do pay attention to environmental concerns and reduce their carbon footprint as well as their energy overheads.
