Tha Bar Wa supports Industries needs technically and professionally by producing a pool of local experts
Before starting the energy audits in the 9 factories, a two days training was organized for factory owners and technicians to make them aware on the benefits of energy efficiency assessment and how such assessments can be conducted and implemented. 20 factory owners and their technicians attended this training.
“First, we access the factory and understand their production process. We analyse which unit of the factory is consuming more energy. In order to make such assessment and calculation, we use energy measurement devices to get the exact data. One of our biggest challenge is that there is not enough data with regards to year wise energy consumption and cost. It would have been more effective if the factory kept the data and records their energy consumption in a regular basis.”
Daw May Thae Aung manages the entire production process in this vinegar factory and she also wants to know how to make her factory energy efficient with the same production outputs.
“With the support from Tha Bar Wa project, we now know the details related to energy efficiency. For example, we know how much diesel will be used for running the generator but we did not calculate how much spending we incurring for the whole year. Now we realized that it is essential to keep track of our energy cost in a regular basis.”
Tha Bar Wa project is funded by the European Union under the SWITCH-Asia Programme. It promotes cleaner production within the food and beverage industry by promoting wastewater treatment plants, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. It supports financial institutions to offer banking products designed specifically for cleaner production.
