The A2A (Assessment to Action) Toolkit is a free suite of resources on energy management and technology best practices created for ammonia companies. The A2A Toolkit provides a first-order, high-level assessment to identify and prioritize energy efficiency opportunities.
It does so by drawing on various assessment modules on technical best practices, management best practices (based on ISO 50001 standard) and productivity improvements. Once the company completes the excel-based modules, a report card is generated that prioritizes energy saving opportunities according to the difficulty and cost of implementation. This allows the company to then create a plan of action based on these results called the Energy Management Action Plan.
A2A Toolkit was developed by the Institute for Industrial Productivity (IIP) who joined with energy experts at ICF Marbek, members of the IFA Technical Committee and experts in China. IIP is a non-profit organization that provides companies and governments with the best practices and expertise needed to reduce energy costs by advancing energy efficiency. Our global team of staff and independent experts brings decades of experience in technology, policy and financing, offering our partners the most integrated service package available anywhere in the world.
We will soon post a brochure with client reviews that were given during the Toolkit pilots and remote training will soon be available for download.
