Accurate and reliable measurement of operating data is critical in evaluating equipment performance and quantifying energy performance improvement at both the equipment and system level. However, plant operation personnel do not always have access to the instruments needed to perform these tasks. They may not know the right tool to use, or cannot yet justify the cost of purchasing the tool.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings, Better Plants Program (Better Plants) developed the T Field Validation and Diagnostic Equipment Program to address these issues. The Better Plants program helps industrial organizations set and achieve energy savings goals across all their U.S. operations. To help partners make informed decisions, Better Plants offers diagnostic instrumentation to enable partners to collect energy data.
