Potential Savings

How much savings can be accrued using the VEA? Let’s start with 3% as an initial estimate.

Based on an annual fuel budget of $10,000,000.00, the savings would be $30,000.00. At $10/lb generating 10,000,000 pounds per year, the savings would be 300,000 pounds per year for a savings of $3,000,000 per year!

The savings would come from implementing the efficiency measures identified by the VEA such as more efficient boiler combinations, reductions in excess air use, better fuel combinations, improvements in peripheral equipment operation, identifications of incidental losses, and on.

Of course, if a plant is already operating well, the savings might only be 1%, but then for other plants the savings might be 7 to 10%. It is up to the program user to identify and then use the measures highlighted.
