You cannot improve what you cannot measure. Global energy production and consumption are ever increasing. World net electricity generation alone will increase from 21.6 trillion kilowatt hours in 2012 to 36.5 trillion kilowatt hours in 2040. The use of air filtration continues to expand for the protection of both people and equipment, which in turn requires more energy. Do we have the methodologies to assess the energy consumption caused by these filters? Our industry is increasingly complex, but we will discuss a roadmap to measuring and improving energy efficiency in air filtration.
