Offering practical guidance, examples and tips for suitable measures to systematically increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions are the focus of the new guide for the plastics processing industry.
Energy Efficiency Monitoring
Charging electric vehicles in an uncoordinated manner can lead to peak electricity consumption and thus high costs – especially for companies and fleet operators. The solution: Intelligent load management.
In addition to the Sankey visualization, the new major release includes a number of highlights such as the heatmap as a new chart type, deep links at asset level in reports and the introduction of an approval process by a selected user for reports.
ÖKOTEC experts Knut Grabowski and Georg Ratjen explain what is meant by a pinch analysis and how they are developing it further in the current R&D project Food Pinch in an interview with the trade magazine DLG.
A new method makes it possible for the first time to determine a specific CO2 footprint for all manufactured products in real time. This is made possible by an extension for digitalized energy management.
ÖKOTEC Energiemangement and RWTH Aachen LTT university are developing solutions in the Food Pinch research and development project to intelligently connect heat sources and heat sinks in the food industry.
EnEffCo® has been awarded the contract by the BMW Group for the digitalization of energy management. The software for energy efficiency controlling will be successively deployed at 16 locations worldwide to continuously reduce energy and water consumption.
Our EnEffReg research project has confirmed: Intelligent and automatic plant control with EnEffReg is possible. The software-based system continuously monitors plants for energy efficiency. Learn more in our short film.
At the end of 2018, Daimler began rolling out EnEffCo® in more than 15 plants worldwide. The rollout will initially focus on Europe, with several hundred thousand meter points to be connected worldwide.
BSR in Berlin charges its vehicles mainly at times of low electricity prices on the stock exchange – intelligent, flexible vehicle charging makes this possible. In addition, peak load management has been introduced.
The software solution for energy efficiency controlling EnEffCo® developed by ÖKOTEC creates an important basic prerequisite for companies to analyze, optimize and control their energy consumption and the efficiency of their plants.
We developed a methodology to achieve the central goals of monitoring and evaluating systems. Companies are thus able to actually monitor and realistically evaluate the efficiency of their energy use.
