Introducing MAS Stephen Fountain Energy Strand Leader – MAS North East
Agenda • What is MAS? • National Programme Results • MAS North East Services • MAS North East Results • The typical journey • MAS NE Approach to energy management • Examples of opportunities identified
What is MAS? • Created in 2002 • Designed to give SMEs access to consulting services normally out of their financial reach • Primary remit is to help companies become more competitive through improvements in QCD
MAS in Numbers • In the year ended in November 2009, MAS nationally: • Handled 12,200 enquires • Performed diagnostics in 6,000 companies • Went on to assist 2,700 of those companies • Generated £145m in increased GVA
MAS NE Services • MAS North East has much wider remit than other regions!

MAS NE in Numbers • Locally, MAS NE: • Worked with over 600 companies • Created GVA of over £30m • Identified potential energy reductions of over £8m • Equates to potential carbon savings of over 40,000 tonnes
MAS NE in Numbers • £2.3m (29%) of energy reductions were within process industry clients • £1.5m from structured energy management • £0.8m from technical energy reduction
MAS NE Customer Journey • Improved GVA • Increased Skills • Jobs created/safeguarded
MAS NE Approach • Structured Energy Management • Get commitment • Policy • Allocation of Resources • Responsibilities • Understand • Why do we use energy? • When do we use energy? • How much do we use? • What does it cost us?
MAS NE Approach • Structured Energy Management • Plan & Prioritise • Prioritise actions and set targets • Implement • No cost solutions • Low cost solutions • Investment solutions • Control & Monitor • Review and compare to initial benchmarks etc
1st Stage - Diagnostic • Step 1 – Get commitment • Cultural review against perceived best practice • Step 2 - Understand • Analysis of available data • Physical review to identify opportunities • Challenge established practices
1st Stage - Diagnostic • Step 3 - Plan & Prioritise • Prioritise findings based on expected impact • Diagnosticfully subsidised to all NE Manufacturers!
1st Stage – Diagnostic (alternative) • In addition to the energy review a MAS NE diagnostic can also be undertaken to:- • Carry out an initial assessment of renewable energy opportunities OR • Review water and waste usage OR • Carry out an EMS gap analysis (14001 etc) • Diagnosticalsofully subsidised to all NE Manufacturers! • (can be and/or with energy review)
2nd Stage – Further Support • Build on diagnostic • E.g. more detailed energy & resources map
2nd Stage – Further Support • Implement • Design studies with cost benefit analysis • Implementation support to ensure benefits achieved • Energy champion training and cultural awareness • Control & Manage • Monitoring & Targeting system specification and implementation • Before and after calculations • 2nd stage partly funded by MAS NE
Examples of Opportunities • Typical Low Cost Opportunities identified:- • Background equipment left running • Set-points to cover all eventualities • Too many cooling water pumps running • Efficiency compromised for convenience • Energy inefficient behaviour • Utility wastage e.g. compressed air or steam • Etc
Examples of Opportunities • Typical Capital Opportunities identified:- • Heat recovery • Combined Heat & Power • Refrigeration upgrades • Lagging upgrades • Pumps and motors • Waste stream reuse options • Water usage reductions • Etc
Summary • MAS NE wider remit than other MAS • £2.3m potential energy savings in process industry clients • Structured approach to energy management • Fully subsidised diagnostics for energy & resource efficiency • Partly funded further support
