Metal Foundry Saves 42.5% on Energy Bills Through the Power of Energy Monitoring

18 October 2023

To tackle the rising energy costs in Brazil, EfficienC teams up with Energy Management company Wattson & SENAI Engineers to deliver real results through the Eniscope.
Legislation has become increasingly strict worldwide in regard to energy consumption within manufacturing sector related activities. Metal casting, although one of the oldest manufacturing processes, is also one of the most energy intensive - with elements like motors, lighting and industrial ovens posing significant energy challenges. 
In this project, EfficienC were quick to analyse and identify large areas of waste, and with the help of the Eniscope data, a massive leakage within the air compressors was recognised and monitored.
Key project takeaways:
The work EfficienC achieved within just five months from installation solidified further plans to roll-out Eniscopes in different areas of the Foundry:
•42.5% overall energy savings
•12 months ROI
•Cost reduction in cast metal production of 28.63%
•Total money saved stands at approx. US $67,677.00
•Cut clients levels of CO2 in half
After delivering first-class results, EfficienC now progress into stage two of the installation process where 4 more Eniscopes will be fitted to monitor illumination and the motors.
The Solution
What do you do when human error is causing energy wastage? 
You remove humans from the equation. The team at Efligence were able to do just that, introducing the ACES 2 product to provide remote control and scheduling capabilities to the air conditioning units on site at the Starbucks store. 
A combination of the energy visibility provided by Eniscope, and the scheduling capabilities of the ACES 2, meant that the air con operation period could be brought down to just 18.5 hours with no impact on customer or staff comfort.
Within the space of just a couple of months, the store was saving over $5,000 a year!
What’s in store for future?
“We are proud to be working with such a prestigious global brand, who are admirably committed to saving energy and reducing their carbon footprint. With our solution, we’ve delivered them an ROI of just 4 months. Next up, we’re looking at how we can roll this solution out to every Starbucks across India.”
