This research develops a study about the best practices in energy efficiency as alternatives to implement in the design of the copper concentrator plants. The need to implement energy efficiency criteria in the concentrator plants is due to the considerable increase in power consumption, which has experienced the copper industry in recent years. Given the importance of the copper industry for our country , it is necessar y to seek alternatives to design concentrators that use better the power. It also describes the different stages and activities developed during the engineering design process and identify the best strategy for implementing energy efficiency criteria. The conclusions of this study provide the basis for the development of a guide to implementing these best practices in energy efficiency. Keywords: Energy Efficiency , Concentrator Plants, Engineering Projects.

    The food and drink industry is the largest and most dynamic manufacturing sector of the European Union. With its 286,000 companies (mostly SMEs) and turnover share of 15%, it provides jobs for over 4 million people. There is an acute need to replace energy-intensive processes in this sector by new efficient ones. The major energy consumption originates from heating, cooling and drying... [Show full abstract]

      California has been using DOE-2 as the main building energy analysis tool in the development of building energy efficiency standards (Title 24) and the code compliance calculations. However, DOE-2.1E is a mature program that is no longer supported by LBNL on contract to the USDOE, or by any other public or private entity. With no more significant updates in the modeling capabilities of... [Show full abstract]
        In 1990 the New Technology Demonstration Program (formerly the Test Bed Demonstration Program) was initiated by the US Department of Energy`s Office (DOE`s) of Federal Energy Management Programs with the purpose of accelerating the introduction of new technologies into the Federal sector. The program has since expanded into a multi-laboratory collaborative effort that evaluates new... [Show full abstract]
