Manufacturing Plant

A gas meter was installed in a manufacturing plant to record real-time natural gas usage.

Project Quick Facts

  • Manufacturing plant has three natural gas molding machines and ovens
  • Measured natural gas usage was aligned with the utility bill

Project Phases

  • Phase 1: Install gas meter and build an operating envelope to learn how gas is used during the day and to develop period comparisons
  • Phase 2: Upgrade oven control system, histories data, and provide machine learning algorithms to improve unit operations and efficiency
  • Phase 3: Add power meter to solar and main power to develop a total energy balance and build out optimization algorithms
