    Learn how De Beers manages its energy, facilitates behavioral change, and reduces energy consumption

    How can instantaneous energy consumption and cost be tracked across different locations and operations? How can companies truly manage their energy as a “raw material”, setting dynamic targets based on production volume, production type, occupancy, weather and other relevant variables? How is it possible to allocate energy cost per department/asset, while automatically reconciling utility bills? How can companies effectively reduce Time of Use (TOU) and Peak Demand charges?

    Diamond producer DeBeers has found answers to these questions.

    Carefully managing energy consumption is crucial from a cost and sustainability perspective. Being able to send automated Plant Maintenance work orders to quickly address energy anomalies and trending energy intensity across assets, processes and facilities are just a few examples of the key factors that drive continuous improvement and energy efficiency at De Beers.

    In this webinar, you will learn how DeBeers successfully reduced cost and environmental impacts through a proactive energy management approach, including immediate visibility of energy consumption, intensity and cost, and immediate alerts that drive actionable intelligence and foster behavioral change.
