Energy Management Overseas

Energy conservation,
CO2
reduction and cutting
costs
in overseas factories

There are various issues related to energy management at overseas plants.

  • It's not possible to manage these
    issues properly by leaving them
    up to the local employees.
  • Detailed analysis is not available.
  • It is unclear what to do in the first place.
  • General Affairs Division,
    Head Office

In other countries, the language is different so the culture and customs are also different.

Different languages, customs, and cultures lead to different levels of awareness about energy management, and smooth communication is often difficult. Therefore, the equipment (machinery) may not be able to perform or may break easily.
In addition, in energy management, there are often situations where people don't realize waste is being produced, or even if they do know waste is being produced, they don't know what the solution is, or they are too busy with production to worry about waste.

With KEPCO's global solutions, we can customize solutions and provide consistent support according to the customer's problems and circumstances.

Benefits of global solutions

I-REC Services

I-REC is a system for trading the environmental value of electricity generated by overseas renewable energy sources in the form of international environmental certificates called I-RECs. Under typical international initiatives, the I-REC-equivalent electricity consumption acquired can be reported as renewable electricity.

Testimonials We adopted this service because we thought it would enable us to meet our challenges of upgrading to high-efficiency systems and optimizing the operation of utility facilities by outsourcing to KEPCO, a professional energy provider.
Compared to our previous system, which did not enable us to achieve proper operation and management, we are very satisfied with the dramatic improvement in efficiency, which has resulted in energy and CO2 reductions beyond our expectations.
In the future, we would like to entrust other equipment, such as solar power generation, to KEPCO.

FAQs

  • Q

    Energy saving consultation:
    Depending on the size and scope, the term can last anywhere from a few months to a year.
    I-REC:
    Single and multi-year contracts are available.
