Owners, mangers and engineers affiliated with small-to-medium-sized factories will learn cost-effective methods to save on industrial energy expenses at an “Energy Audit Workshop” from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 30, in Room 204 of the Havener Center on the University of Missouri-Rolla campus.         

“This workshop will help you evaluate your company’s energy performance through diagnostic procedures to find areas to save energy and money,” says Dr. Bin Wu, a professor of industrial engineering at the University of Missouri-Columbia and director of the MU Industrial Assessment Center.         

Bin Wu will lead the workshop. Topics will include assessing energy uses, HVAC issues, evaluating steam and boiler systems, managing industrial waste, and examining motors, pumps, air compressors and lighting.         

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, sites that have conducted energy audits enjoy average energy savings of $55,000 annually.         

Costs for the workshop are $150 per person, plus $50 for each additional person from the same company. The event is co-sponsored by the MU Industrial Advisory Council and the Missouri Small Business and Technology Development Centers.
