ENERGY MANAGEMENT
The EPA's Energy Star program promotes treasure
hunts, and its website has several resources for plant and
energy managers to use, including profiles of companies
that share the savings they've uncovered. Energy Star
launched a Find the Treasure campaign in late fall 2019
and was gearing up for a lot of activity and expansion
of the program. But like so many other things, it was
crowded out by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
" Now that restrictions are being lifted and more people
are vaccinated, there's more opportunity for people
to do treasure hunts, " Mr. Tunnessen said. " My guess
is that come this summer, it might be a good time to
think about doing one just to see how you're operating.
Maintenance projects may have been put on the back
burner or you may have maintenance projects that you
want to revisit and make sure they're working right.
Treasure hunts could be a way to do that. "
Finding energy savings comes in many forms. Energy
Star calls them treasure hunts, some call them kaizen
events, but they are all ways to improve energy efficiency
and save money. These hunts take a fair amount of planning
and require some expertise and team effort, but bakeries
can adjust and scale them to their own needs.
Installing LED lights
throughout a bakery
saves energy and
reduces the heat in
the plant.
Flowers Foods
Plan carefully for success
The Energy Treasure Hunt Guide, which can be found
on the Energy Star website, categorizes these events into
four phases: preparation, pre-training, the onsite event
and follow-up.
Although facilities can become more energy efficient
through small and large capital projects and procurement
- such as renegotiating utility supply contracts
or upgrading lighting - treasure hunts are designed to
help companies save energy through low-cost or no-cost
projects. As with any successful project, careful planning
is a must.
" To do it, you're going to have to take some time and
schedule it, " Mr. Tunnessen said. " Which bakery should
we look at? Who needs to be involved? When do we do
it? What's the best time to do it? "
Finding energy efficiencies also takes a certain
amount of expertise. For smaller bakeries in which managers
may wear several hats, this can be daunting.
" One of the things I ran into was the number of people
we had who understood what we were looking for was
zero, " said Billy Delaney, environmental health and safety
manager for New Horizons Baking Co., Norwalk, Ohio.
In 2017, Mr. Delaney was tasked with reducing energy
and wastewater by 20% at the company's Norwalk
plant. He started asking people for advice and guidance.
He consulted the Energy Star spreadsheet for the Energy
Star Challenge and started calculating the gas and electricity
energy use in the plant.
" I got a metric to measure it against by their recommendation,
which was by units, and figured out how
many units we needed for a basic pack of a dozen muffins, "
he said. " When we did that, the spreadsheet started
giving us data results, so we had a baseline year. "
To achieve the Energy Star Challenge, bakeries must
reduce their energy intensity by 10% within five years.
The Norwalk plant's baseline year was 2018, and by the
end of 2019 and beginning of 2020, the bakery had far
