      Cofiring of biomass and coal at electrical generation facilities is gaining in impor-tance as a means of reducing fossil fuel consumption, and more than 40 facilities in the United States have conducted test burns. Given the large size of many coal plants, cofiring at even low rates has the potential to utilize relatively large volumes of :// (Credit: Engie Impact) According to the EPA, businesses waste about 30% of the energy used in their commercial buildings and worldwide, buildings account for 32% of energy use and 19% of energy-related greenhouse emissions. As companies are increasingly focused on ways to reduce energy waste, they are looking to facility managers to provide input and leadership on ways to improve the energy

    The 'Black Book' is a suite of guidance notes that define good technical standards for quantity surveying and construction professionals. These standards are essential development tools for younger professionals working through their APC and useful guides to /sector-standards/construction/black-book. Industrial facilities today don’t have to be new in order to be efficient. Leading facility owners and operators are retrofitting buildings into models of efficiency and sustainability. Industrial retrofits are investments in efficient technologies that span all facility systems, including lighting, facility

These batteries are kept charged by large battery chargers. The designs of the electrical distribution systems are quite similar from plant to plant.
