MPC…the standard bearer…It is the foremost company that has developed energy management in the industrial sector, and it had the foresight to look at decreasing energy consumption (costs) before those costs were volatile or even considered a cost variable that could be decreased.

MPC Energy has an unparalleled legacy of empowering clients with increased profitability and press-worthy environmental stewardship. Here’s what some have said:

Case studies > Video testimonials > More testimonials >

  • I would recommend MPC to any interested party and can attest that the results they promised are achievable.

    Valero
  • …savings opportunities were developed…without undue interruption of the normal workflow of the facility.

    Uniroyal Chemical (now Chemtura)
  • The results that were achieved exceeded our expectations and have been sustained…

    AMCOL International
  • …I was very impressed by MPC work and would not hesitate to use them again…

    British Petroleum (now BP)
  • MPC’s compensation is based on energy savings over an extended period, therefore they have, in effect, become our partners.

    El Dorado Chemical Corporation
  • We have realized significant energy savings without any capital project spending!

    ICL Performance Products LP
  • We could not have accomplished what was done…I have already recommended MPC to former colleagues.

    Innovia Films
  • We have achieved savings beyond the original estimate.

    Valspar
  • …the documented energy savings has exceeded your initial proposal and the pay-back period will be less than six months.

    Union Carbide
  • This is one of the easiest programs to make a plant manager look good.

    Union Camp (now International Paper)
  • …have positioned us to progress to Solomon 1st Quartile performance. More importantly, I feel we can stay there.

    Valero
  • We have realized significant savings and the refinery awareness that MPC generated will help to insure a sustainable Energy Stewardship Program.

    Valero
  • The MPC team are consummate professionals that…earned the trust of plant personnel.

    Cooper Tire
  • …we are very satisfied with the projected savings and implementation…this is a positive step towards energy control.

    Purina
  • Not only…financial benefits, but communications have been opened between departments allowing advances beyond the scope of utility management.

    Sun Chemical
  • Now, two months into the program, it is obvious that the net savings will represent 26% of the budgeted energy costs…

    Motorola
  • …were skeptical that improvements of the magnitude which (MPC) was promising were achievable. We have seen improvements as promised…

    Corn Products International
  • (The MPC team) was very conscientious and tenacious…through their efforts we were able to achieve significant savings.

    Citgo
  • The Energy Reduction Management System implemented in this plant is real and clearly differentiates MPC’s programs from others.

    Continental General Tire, Inc.
  • MPC has opened our eyes to the cost side of energy and the ability to benchmark day-to-day operations by monitoring energy.

    Continental General Tire, Inc.
  • …adding real dollars to our bottom line at year’s end, instead of sending them to an energy company.

    DSM
  • We have realized savings when energy costs are escalating at a record pace… I would recommend their services to anyone…

The Time-Tested MPC Process

Other engineering and software companies claim energy optimization but at best only offer minor improvements, giving you the ability to simply use a little less energy than you did yesterday.

Only MPC offers large-scale manufacturers true "optimization":

  • The understanding of how much energy is actually required to produce...
    • ...at equal or higher quality
    • ...using existing equipment
  • A detailed roadmap for optimizing your specific process components.
  • The guidance and support to quickly realize your most significant reduction opportunities.
  • The systems and tools to sustain your new efficiencies after we're gone.

Here is how we do it:

We assess your energy opportunity.

Your time is valuable, and so is ours. We’ll schedule a brief call and discuss some of your usage metrics to find out if your manufacturing operation is a good candidate for MPC.

We invest in the right clients.

Following a couple of layers of due diligence, we’ll work with your management team to establish some objectives. We then schedule an engagement team to execute over several months at the client site, all at zero up-front cost to the client.

We 'blend in' with your team.

Safety and production are, and should be, the primary focus of your team. While you keep the trains running, we dig into energy usage drivers and check in with your team regularly regarding the opportunities revealed by data, process queries, and MPC’s proprietary catalog of known benchmarks and thermodynamic algorithms.

We go deep into the data.

The first key to an MPC-level understanding of how energy flows through your process lies in highly complex processes of dissection and manipulation of data from your historians. Even where metering doesn’t exist, we can find critical answers that will help us complete the big picture.

We get our hands dirty.

Our chemical and process engineers study and quantify the thermodynamic attributes of your processes and product from the viewpoint of the production floor. Only by seeing your engineering and production challenges firsthand can we work in concert with your engineering team to validate true energy optimization opportunities.

We validate your unique model.

Client after client, year after year; no other company can match MPC’s proven record of accuracy in consumption modeling. We factor out unaddressable variables (such as climate), hypothesize and test for variance drivers using multiple methodologies; and arrive at a unique series of algorithms which, upon completion, invariably track our model against your actual usage within one percent.

We reveal the ideal.

We combine the volumes of this analysis with proprietary resources to find your ‘gold standard’: those best-case consumption targets at each plant, line, and equipment level. These serve as your unique and perpetual barometer for energy optimization of existing equipment; and understand where future capital projects will translate to meaningful ROI.

We isolate and attack opportunities.

Throughout this process, we’ve assembled a list of quantified and immediate savings opportunities and can now deploy a joint engineering ‘SWAT’ team to go after these opportunities and watch them translate into a distinct and unquestionable reduction in the cost of energy per production unit.

We get paid when you save.

MPC’s flexible services model adapts to the culture, objectives and constraints of any organization. The bulk of our clients choose simple contingency fee agreements, paying out a percentage of MPC-impacted savings (as proven by the validated model and decrease in unit-cost of energy) over a period of time after we leave.

We leave you the tools to sustain.

Congratulations! You are now ISO 50001 compliant, you know the true difference between a “good energy day” and a bad one, and you’ve got the world’s most intelligent custom monitoring and response system guiding you to sustain (and increase) those savings every day.
