Energy management tools: how to choose a solution

Energy management, or more precisely "energy asset" management, has become a true concern in the industrial area. A company that manages its energy better can be more competitive and meet financial and regulatory requirements as well as environmental constraints.

This requires companies to acquire new skills and use new tools, including an Energy Management Information System (EMIS). This is a system that goes from the sensor to the energy management software, to provide relevant information in order to control the use of energy as precisely as possible.

Energy efficiency: a new concern in manufacturing

For a long time, efforts to save energy were essentially focused in construction (BBC, etc.) and transport (low-consumption vehicles, etc.) This phenomenon is now spreading around our factories as industrialists realize that energy management is a true competitive advantage, particularly in a less favorable economic environment.

There is no longer any question of considering energy as always available and representing a fixed charge on the balance sheet that is never questioned. Facing ever rising energy prices, tighter regulation, environmental protection ... energy has become an additional raw material to manage and a cost center that must not be endured, but controlled!

There is less and less room for one-time energy saving efforts that are not part of a long-term performance strategy. Energy efficiency must stem from a structured approach based on three levers: Reducing waste - Optimizing existing equipment - New technologies.

"Energie Plus" - Savings where they were not expected

The purpose of counting plans is to guide companies in achieving energy savings. A brief overview of diverse paths of improvement, thanks to three examples of counting plans carried out in the drug industry, food industry and light manufacturing.

"Thanks to these various solutions, energy savings were up to 3% in 2012 and 4% in 2013, which represents more than a hundred thousand euros."

"Energie actu" - Energy management key to industry competitiveness

Once wages are paid, the energy bill is often companies and industries' second biggest expense. Knowing how they use energy and how they can save on this "reducible" cost has become a concern for future growth and sustainability.

"All our customers are faced with limited profits and have to keep going anyway, for example many automotive equipment manufacturers. Savings in energy management can free up these margins and influence prices. Saving between 10 and 20% on energy bills results in a higher competitive advantage in the end. And if we think long term, it is a tool to maintain jobs in France." explains Pascal Mioche, president of AI.
