Energy Saving Activities

Major challenges

  • 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. Introduction of LED lightings and PV power generation systems.
  2. Introduction of high-efficient chillers, air conditioners, vacuum pumps, compressors, improvement in clean room control, incorporation of inverters to pumps, etc.
  3. Energy visualization, stopping facilities at night and on holidays, measures for air (steam) leakage, insulation, heat recovering, thinning out of lighting, optimization of illuminance, etc.
  4. Improvement in productivity of equipment and yield ratio, etc.
  5. Holding Energy Saving Network Event at overseas sites to share energy saving case examples.
    Through these activities, we achieved reducing 10,000 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.
