Energy Efficiency Self Assessment Tools

ESPIRE is a partnership project between Training and Development Centers of the Bavarian Employers‘ Association (bfz) gGmbH, Small & Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) and textile associations in Pakistan. The objective of ESPIRE is to support the industry to work economically more efficient and ecologically sustainable.

ESPIRE has designed a set of tools to help industry measure and improve their energy performance.

The tools calculate the energy efficiency of a company and estimate potential energy and cost savings. The results generated by these tools are estimated based on models and help to determine which equipment or practices are worth pursuing to reduce energy consumption.

The companies can contact ESPIRE team or the experts involved in developing these tools using the contact information provided within the tools.

An on-site energy audit may be beneficial to uncover other energy conservation measures not addressed by these tools.

TOOL FOR CALCULATING COST OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY MIX

Calculate the total costs of your individual electrical energy mix, based on the different energy sources that your company uses: grid power, diesel generator and gas generator.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT MATURITY MATRIX

The Energy Management Maturity Matrix is based on Performance Levels defined in accordance with the Energy Management System ISO 50001. The Matrix helps you to assess the level of implementation of the energy management system in the company and identify areas where further development and consideration is required.

CHECKLISTS FOR SELF ASSESSMENT

This tool unites several Checklists that help you to conduct a Self-Assess­ment of your existing systems and performances in the following fields:

·       Checklist Hot Water & Boiler System

·       Checklist Power generation and distribution

·       Checklist Motors

·       Checklist Pump & Pumping System

·       Checklist Compressors

·       Checklist Lighting System

MAXIMUM DEMAND INDICATOR (MDI) MANAGEMENT TOOL

Investigate opportunity of reducing the MDI of your company by impro­ving Load Management of utilities and processes at shift start-ups and/ or while connecting to grid power supply.

Who we are:

Training and Development Centers of the Bavarian Employers‘ Association (bfz) gGmbH is one of the largest providers of vocational training in Germany.

The International Division of bfz conducts development cooperation projects on behalf of World Bank, European Union, and the German Government in all parts of the world.

In Pakistan bfz‘s objective is to support the industry to work economically more efficient and ecologically sustainable.

Small & Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) is an important Network Partner of bfz. As an autonomous body, it closely interacts with SMEs and provides technical services in the areas of energy management, producti­vity enhancement and quality improvement.

Business associations are partners of bfz and guarantee outreach and sustainability of the activities. These associations include Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers and Exporters Associations, Pakistan Readymade Garments and Exporters Associations, Towel Manufacturers Association, and Pakistan Association of Automotive Parts and Accessories Manufacturers. These associations are the link to the individual industries, helping with need assessment and promoting project activities. Furthermore the associations plan, organize and conduct events and trainings with network partners to guarantee sustainability of ESPIRE project activities.

The project is supported by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Sequa gGmbH.
