dc.description.abstract Energy efficiency is simply using less energy to achieve the same purpose. With energy investment being one of the main cost factors in a textile industry, this research was aimed at identifying energy efficient and saving technologies that could optimize energy consumption in NYTIL, the case study. This involved determination of current energy consumption trends of the factory in hydro power, coffee husks, kerosene, petrol and diesel by carrying out an energy audit. This was done with the use of preliminary energy audit. The trends show a decrease in energy consumption especially in hydro power, and coffee husks, an indicator of energy efficiency. Tables and graphs were used to show different energy consumptions and trends in chapter four of results and discussions. Also different energy management and conservation measures suitable for NYTIL were identified such as use of LED energy savers in all righting systems, improvement on power factor, re-insulation of all steam lines etc. Furthermore, economic analysis on the energy efficient strategies was carried out for some of the technologies to prove their feasibility and the results show better performance if implemented. Finally, the research indicates conclusions and different recommendations derived from the chapter four of results and discussions. Basically they emphasize what the company should do to achieve energy efficiency, so as to maintain the energy consumption trends on a decrease. en_US
