Webcast: Four steps to effective energy management
Oct. 29 live event will highlight ways to build continuous energy improvement
Energy costs are often the single largest controllable facility operating expense so having an effective energy management plan is essential if U.S. manufacturers want to remain competitive in global markets.
An October 29 Webcast , sponsored by Plant Engineering and Schneider Electric, will look at a simple four-step process for continuous energy efficiency improvement - measure energy usage, fix the basics, automate, and monitor and control. In addition, discover a variety of effective energy management solutions and strategies used in a real-life energy optimization project that has realized energy savings of over $8.1 million in just four years. All registered attendees are qualified to receive .1 CEUs for this event.
This Webcast, Four Steps to effective Energy Management , will help you:
•Understand how active energy management can drive continuous reduction in the energy intensity of a manufacturing operation, thereby reducing energy costs and improving its environmental sustainability
•Discover a four step process for continuous energy efficiency improvement
•Identify fruitful areas for energy management solutions
•Develop strategies to maximize the return on energy efficiency investments
Speakers are Johanne Greenwood, Director, Global Energy Efficiency Program, Schneider Electric and Ed Willhite, Facility Manager, Schneider Electric.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
