In this audio lecture, Amory Lovins, Chairman and Chief Scientist of the Rocky Mountain Institute, discusses ideas on how industry can begin to achieve energy efficiencies through a commitment to awareness and understanding of "what goes in and what goes out." Industry can save unbelievable amounts in water, energy, and maintenance simply by measuring to determine where waste exists.
However, the crux of total energy efficiency lies in the need to completely rethink how systems are designed. If the goal is to produce the greatest benefits, system designers must ask heretical questions and consider what can be eliminated at the earliest stages to achieve the smallest, most efficient systems. This is part one of a three-part presentation on “Energy Efficiency in Industry”. It is also the second in a series of five talks on Energy Efficiency by Amory Lovins and is brought to you by MAP.
Amory B. Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute Cofounder, Chairman, and Chief Scientist, is a consultant experimental physicist educated at Harvard and Oxford. He advises governments and major firms worldwide on advanced energy and resource efficiency, and has led the technical redesign of $30 billion worth of facilities in 29 sectors to achieve very large energy savings at typically lower capital cost.
