Energy Centered Maintenance - A Green Maintenance System

Abstract

Energy Centered Maintenance provides a detailed description of how to implement Energy Centered Maintenance (ECM) at any organization. It includes a new six-step technical process with detailed instructions of each of these steps explained with clear examples. Areas covered include preventative maintenance, predictive maintenance and reliability centered maintenance.
ECM uses energy consumption excesses or energy waste as the primary criterion for determining specific maintenance or repair needs. Therefore, the primary purpose of this course is to provide strategies to reduce energy use by identifying equipment or items that can become energy hogs while still performing their function and prevent that from occurring. The primary reasons organizations need ECM is due to poor maintenance of energy- using systems and energy losses from motors not turning off when they should.

It includes ECM for electrical, mechanical, building transportation, HVAC, fire-fighting, water supply, drainage and storm water management systems. In some cases, ECM in data centers can help reduce energy consumption by as much as 30%.

The six-step process detailed here will enable any organization to implement ECM in an orderly, cost effective manner thus improving your equipment and machines, lowering your energy consumption and helping save the planet.
