Nelson Pine Industries Limited

Tracking energy savings

NPIL is furthering its already impressive track record in energy savings, with the employment of an Efficiency Engineer part funded by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority. Reece Clements has an overall goal of saving NPIL two gigawatt hours of energy in his two years with the company.  To make this job more accurate NPIL invested in two hi-tech data-loggers that are now gathering robust data on how much power is used by any selected machinery. The data-logger reveals where worthwhile efficiencies can be made on plant, often to be replicated elsewhere in the factory.

NPIL was collecting energy use data before, but with the data-loggers the company can now verify savings more easily and set targets for further savings in energy use.
