Energy usage in industries is one of the significant factors that contributes to the competitiveness of industries and, therefore it has to be properly managed to deliver maximum savings and eventually profits for companies. Generally, the management of energy usage can be divided into two aspects, electrical and mechanical aspects. It is the intent of this practicum project to recommend energy conservation measures for the analyzed companies towards energy savings. Thus, all the activities of this practicum project have the purpose of reducing energy consumption and ultimately making the company more competitive. The energy audit of the company I and Company II were conducted by the writer and the Energy Management Advisory Services Section under the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Division of the Department of Energy of the Philippines. The objective of the practicum project is to give recommendations in terms of energy conservation by conducting detailed energy audit and submitting a formal report describing thorough analysis on the assessment of energy conservations projects. The monthly potential energy savings of company I is equivalent to Php. 1,690,902.00 with a total investment cost of about Php. 18,058,888.38 which is recoverable in less than a year, while the monthly total potential monetary savings amount to Php. 244,964.60 with a total investment cost and payback period of Php. 2,040,000.00 and 1.02 years.
