Hyosung’s energy diagnostic service is conducted by experts who study general energy usage practices in the sites through the use of specialized equipment. The energy experts identify the energy loss causes and provide energy saving plans. Through the energy diagnostic service, Hyosung provides energy efficiency improvement plans and identifies causes of surplus or waste for more efficient recollection of thermal energy.
◎ What is the mandatory energy diagnostic?
The Korean government requires that businesses with high energy use to conduct energy diagnostics for greater energy efficiency in response to high oil prices, the UN Convention of Climate Changes, and the Kyoto Protocol. Businesses which consume 2,000 (tons) of annual energy use must conduct energy diagnostics every five years.
Effects of energy diagnostic include minimized energy loss and stable facility operation through optimized energy use. Moreover, facility and process efficiency analysis can help the companies improve energy risk management capabilities as well as corporate competitiveness.
