• Energy loss cascade: Analysis of the energy efficiency, with technological, operational and production parameters being assigned to specific energy use to enable energy losses to be precisely pinpointed.
• Real-Time Energy Efficiency Monitor: Monitoring system which enables energy efficiency to be increased through operational intervention.
• Energy Efficiency Key Performance Indicators (KPI): Quantified energy efficiency indicators that represent efficiency achievements and their temporal development.
• Energy Efficiency Benchmark: Standardization ofthe energy efficiency values and KPIs for the purposes of cross-plant comparability.
• Sustained Energy Efficiency Improvements: Target-setting and sustainable tracking of both energy efficiency and the implementation of measures to increase energy efficiency and reduce climate impact.
The management system follows a holistic approach to analyze, evaluate and document technological, production- related and operational changes in energy efficiency, with the aim of facilitating the operation of production processes with an optimal level of efficiency and its continuous and sustainable improvement. The system helps operating personnel to operate the facility in an optimal way and management to develop and implement the best possible production strategies.
The implementation of a management system reduces energy use per metric ton of product. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are lowered and thereby the carbon footprint reduced. Sustainable increases in energy efficiency are assured through KPI controlled objectives, data aggregation and internal and inte^plant benchmarking. To this end, parameters that have significant impact on energy use are identified, continuously monitored and optimized. In addition, the system provides economic benefits by reducing production costs.
