Completely revised throughout, this book serves as a "how to" manual for using energy and environmental efficiency as a means to be more economical and profitable. This major update reflects the latest technology advancements and the many changes and developments that have taken place in the utility and environmental regulation areas. While these will always be subject to change, fuel and utility rates have been updated throughout to reflect current rates. The utility section was also updated to reflect the current state of deregulation, market pricing, and to include a discussion of smart grid and other emerging programs. The environmental sections were revised to reflect the current emphasis on greenhouse gas emissions and carbon management, updates to CAAA regulations and timelines, and the latest developments in the use and control of refrigerants. In the technology sections, new or modified technologies were included, and equipment and system efficiency and performance were updated to reflect the latest developments. In addition to updates to the chapter on renewable and alternative power technologies, discussion was included about market penetration of various technologies. Well organized for easy reference, the book's key topics include optimization of heat and power resources, thermal technologies, prime mover technologies, environmental considerations, utility rates and integrated resource planning, localized electric generation, mechanical drive services, refrigeration and air conditioning, and integrated approach to facility resource optimization. The text is supplemented with numerous graphics and reference charts and tables.
