Following the plant visit, the IAC team spends
time researching, evaluating, and developing the preliminary opportunities.
If additional information is needed, further communication will
be made with plant personnel, and additinal data may be requested.
The most assessment recommendations (ARs) are combined in an final
assessment report that is sent to the client and to the program
management organization, Center for Advanced Energy Systems at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in Piscataway, NJ.
The report quantifies current energy and waste
management costs and recommends specific opportunities for energy
conservation, pollution prevention, and productivity improvement.
Also included are metrics for savings, implementation costs, and
payback time for each action recommended. The total for each metric
over all of the recommendations is summarized for understanding
by plant personnel.
