Department Of Energy Free Software

The US Department of Energy has made available several software programs to help facilities decide on the most energy-efficient equipment for their specific applications. For example, the MotorMaster+ software contains a database of over 32,000 motors (both domestic and international), describing the “best fit” motor for your application and showing potential energy savings. Other software available includes:

Chilled Water System Analysis Tool (CWSAT)
Combined Heat and Power Application Tool (CHP)
Fan System Assessment Tool (FSAT)
MotorMaster+ 4.0
MotorMaster+ International
NOx and Energy Assessment Tool (NxEAT)
Plant Energy Profiler for the Chemical Industry (ChemPEP Tool)
Process Heating Assessment and Survey Tool (PHAST)
Pumping System Assessment Tool 2004 (PSAT)
Steam System Tool Suite

These tools can be downloaded from their website or you can order a CD from the same site.

With the volume of recent literature discussing the advantages of energy efficiency in your facilities, these tools may help in your decision-making processes.
