Texas Instruments - Energy Conservation

Texas Instruments (TI) is an established leader in toxics use reduction (TUR), implementing many innovative TUR techniques in the past ten years. As part of its on-going efforts, TI has employed innovative methods for minimizing its daily energy requirements and saving money. TI installed heat exchangers in its chiller systems to utilize atmospheric conditions to achieve its cooling needs, rather than requiring costly energy input from its on site power plant. It's peak shaving project utilizes ice-making capabilities to create alternative sources of cooling (ice) during low energy use times (evening). These technologies have resulted in a significantly reduced energy consumption profile at the facility, reducing its associated generation and emissions of polycyclic aromatic compounds and other toxic chemicals.
