Energy Management: Conservation and Audit discusses the global energy scenario including energy conservation, management and audit along with the methodology supported by industrial examples. Energy economics of systems has been elaborated with concepts of life cycle assessment and costing, and rate of return. Topics such as energy storage, co-generation, and waste heat recovery vital to energy efficiency have been discussed with case studies. The challenges faced in conserving energy sources (steam and electricity) have been elaborated along with the improvements in the lighting sector. Further, it covers optimization procedures for development in the industry related to energy conservation. Focussed on researchers, renior undergraduate and graduate students in Energy Management, Sustainable Energy, Renewable Energy, Audits and Conservation, this volume Covers current information related to energy management and includes energy audit in a single volume Reviews all the main equipment (boilers, CHP, pumps, heat exchangers) as well as procedural frameworks (energy audits, action planning, monitoring) Includes energy production and management from an industrial perspective Highlights the various processes involved in the energy conservation and auditing in the various sectors and associated methods Explores future energy options and directions for energy security and sustainability
