Ingrid introduces FAC Benchmark for plants and fleets. The FAC Assessment Form will allow users to conduct a self-assessment during a FAC course or plant/fleet review. The assessment involves eight results-oriented FAC influenced factors. Each factor can be assessed quantitatively and represents an indicator by which organizations can compare their FAC programs with other organizations. Each factor relates to the optimum FAC Program developed by EPRI and published in an EPRI report for fossil plant FAC Guidelines. It is suggested that an organization or plant make the initial assessment with data from the last three years. Improvements/changes could then be assessed on an annual basis. The Benchmarking Process here pertains to a utility fleet and individual units.
