Analysis of extended energy survey reports (1984-1989) for the paper and board converting industry

Technical Report:

Abstract

The analysis contained in this report represents 24 Extended Energy Survey reports in the Paper and Board Converting sector. The sites surveyed represent about 6% of United Kingdom production, ranging from large (employing 800 people or with energy bills of about Pound 1 Million/year) to small (employing 12 people or with energy bills of Pound 24k/year). The sample was biased towards the larger sites. The great diversity of product types limits the validity of the analysis of all 24 reports together, while precluding coherent sub-samples. Potential energy cost saving measures worth Pound 2.315 Million per annum were identified. The main identified areas for energy saving were in steam and boiler systems, space heating, general building fabric insulation process heat recovery, and process control/monitoring and targetting along with high cost saving/low TJ boiler fuel changes. 63% of measures had an implementation cost of Pound 10k or more, 28% under Pound 10k, with the remaining 9% at no cost. The payback for most measures was under 2 years. The analysis highlighted the large potential for savings in Industrial Building measures and suggested investigation of potential Best Practice in the subsector manufacturing Flexible Packaging Materials, which appeared to have a high specific energy  More>>

The payback for most measures was under 2 years. The analysis highlighted the large potential for savings in Industrial Building measures and suggested investigation of potential Best Practice in the subsector manufacturing Flexible Packaging Materials, which appeared to have a high specific energy consumption. One pair of reports covered the same site at a 5 year interval, showing the savings due to implementation of one recommendation from the first survey. The index of energy cost savings to Government costs for the 24 EES reports analysed would be approximately 28:1 if all recommended measures were implemented by the participating sites. (author).}
