We are planning a project in our company. It is to undergo facility optimization. This will include goals to conserve energy and water and in order to achieve this fully is to make changes too. Any thoughts on what type of changes that we can implement to improve and save money?

Do you want to conserve energy or save money? Is there a difference between the two in your mind? With energy, are you concerned with total life cycle savings (including production and disposal) or just energy consumed directly by your facility? With energy, do you care about reducing all energy use, or only energy use from certain sources (such as coal or nuclear). Do you have any concerns about environmental impact from mining or disposal of certain materials?

Some folks try to "conserve energy" in an attempt to save the planet. I cannot help but be concerned that efforts to do so might be misguided in some cases, when total environmental impact is considered. How do you feel, for example, about cutting down rain forest to grow corn to turn into ethanol?
