Abstract Energy and demand cost savings using an engine-driven air compressor are determined based on average utility rates for four different regions of the country. Net heat recovery cost savings from an engine-driven air compressor is also investigated. An engine-driven air compressor can be used to realize cost savings with an acceptable payback in the northeast US and in some instances the southeast and midwest. Based on average utility prices in the west, an engine-driven air compressor will not present an acceptable payback period.
