Abstract

Session Chair

Presented By

Phillip Thomas, C.E.M.
Manager
A1 Solutions

Phillip specializes in applying data analytical techniques with internet of things technologies in an energy management program environment (AIM) that introduces a new way of operating industrial and manufacturing plants. It includes developing real time management reporting information for optimizing and enhancing the operations of these facilities. He is a pioneer in this new conglomeration of programs which is facilitated by his experience in plant engineering and energy efficiency initiatives with industrial, manufacturing and commercial enterprises and his certifications (CEM) using them to develop and promote new ways of achieving organizational excellence through energy. He holds Masters degrees in Environmental and Industrial engineering with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering. A notable difference with the adoption of this three-pronged approach is that there is no one size fits all solution. It is therefore finding the “sweet spots” of application unique to each enterprise that occupies his efforts and the results developed are signature solutions resulting in quantum results for the respective organization(s). This new operational dynamic will result in new benchmarking metrics and new specifications of equipment. With it innovative educational and training opportunities will be required to facilitate the combined efforts required for maximum progress and continual development.

He is an Inter-American Development Bank’s Connect Americas global ambassador and is a certified energy manager (CEM).
