Abstract

Effective use of local energy source by the industrial sector is of vital importance economically and environmentally. Strategies are suggested for better management of industrial energy consumption and use. Cogeneration, waste heat use, industrial integration are some strategies that can be employed to enhance effective energy use and minimize waste heat. Savings can be made by government on initial power generation costs by leveling out power consumption and reducing peak consumption rates. This the government can do by enforcing a timeofday tariff. Consumer awareness of the strategic importance of energy use can significantly contribute to encouraging industries to pursue energy saving policies.

Key Words: Co-generation, integration, energy, discounted price, buffering
