This hands-on reference provides a detailed description of how to implement an Energy Centered Maintenance (ECM) program for any organization. The authors offer and demonstrate a six-step technical process, with detailed instructions of each step explained with clear examples. Areas covered include preventive, predictive and reliability-centered aspects of maintenance. ECM uses energy consumption excesses, or energy waste, as the primary criterion for determining specific maintenance or repair needs. Therefore, the key purpose of this book is to provide strategies to reduce energy use by identifying equipment or items which can become energy hogs while performing their functions and impede the achievement of that goal. The book includes ECM approaches for electrical, mechanical, building transportation, HVAC, fire-fighting, water supply, drainage and storm water management systems. In some cases, ECM in data centers can help reduce energy consumption by as much as 30%.
