CET was awarded the project of Substation Intelligent Power Monitoring System from Asia Aluminum (China). CET's EnerSys System integrated over 1,000 sets of power monitoring devices and digital protection relays.
Industrial Energy Management
As manufacturers face an increasingly competitive global business environment, they seek opportunities to reduce production costs without negatively affecting product yield or quality. Uncertain energy prices in today’s marketplace negatively affect predictable earnings. For public and private companies alike, increasing energy prices are driving up costs and decreasing their value added. Successful, cost-effective investment into energy efficiency technologies and practices meet the challenge of maintaining the output of a high quality product despite reduced production costs. This is especially important, as energy-efficient technologies often include “additional” benefits, such as increasing the productivity of the company.
CETA's product portfolio covers all important aspects of an Industrial Energy Management program. From Meters, Communication Devices, through to a Energy Management software platform that integrates seamlessly with your existing deployment of Energy Meters
Of the major elements comprising a sound industrial energy management program, benchmarking energy use is one of the most important because it empowers manufacturing facilities to set goals for improvement and for monitoring progress. Setting plant energy performance indicators enables plant energy managers and corporate executives to evaluate the energy efficiency of their plants relative to that of the industry.

The Case for an Industrial Energy Management System
The installation of an Energy Management System will gives facilities management teams the information required to make informed operational decisions. By monitoring energy usage, plant management staff can establish whether powered equipment equipment is being used efficiently or the impact of variances in power quality have on costs. By showing exactly how much it is costing to leave the devices on unattended, air conditioning in operation when not required or not turning the lights off. An Energy Management System will enable you to actively target cost saving goals.
Reducing energy usage has a direct effect on CO2 emissions. Each kilowatt-hour consumed releases approximately 1 kilogram of greenhouse gases. Every tonne of CO2 released approximates one hectare of mature rainforest. It can easily be seen that every reduction in energy usage results in a reduction of CO2, which relieves a burden on our environment.
Realized Benefits of a Industrial Energy Management System
In total, over the 18 month period of the installation of the Energy Management System, the interval meters and the required communications channels, Xstrata expended approximately $500K. In the first year, accurate measurement of the various site power demands and energy consumption has helped justify several projects, the first two of which have resulted in annual savings of approx $300k in energy consumption alone. The accumulated benefits over the coming years will far outweigh the cost of the system.
