Energy Saving Activities

Major challenges

  • Energy Saving Committee: Sharing energy saving case examples and promoting optimum standardization
  • Steady promotion of business plan with performance management and visualization
  • Reinforcement of energy saving activities at overseas sites

Energy saving case examples

AIS Company promotes following activities on global basis, reducing CO2 emissions.

  1. Promoting Introduction of LED lightings and PV power generation systems.
  2. Introduction of high-efficient chillers, air conditioners, vacuum pumps, compressors, improvement of control for compressors, clean rooms and dry rooms, incorporation of inverters to pumps, etc.
  3. With energy visualization, conducting facility stop at nights and holidays, optimization of emission fans, lowering pressure of air/steam, measures for leakage, insulation/heat recovering, thinning out of lighting, optimization of illuminance, etc.
  4. Improvement in productivity of facilities and yield ratio, etc.
  5. Holding Energy Saving Network Event at overseas sites sharing energy saving case examples.
    Through these activities, we achieved reducing 9,300 tons of CO2 emissions.

As a fruit of above energy saving activities, we received following awards.

We make efforts for daily energy saving activities, as well as promotes continual improvement toward more efficient energy use in the future.
