Abstract [en]

Improved energy efficiency in industrial energy systems is for example of outmost importace as a mean to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce energy costs. The energy efficiency potential in European industry is stated by the European Commission to be 25 percent, where the majority of the measures are found in pumps, fans and lighting. Despite extensive attention given to energy efficiency, research states that a majority of avaliable cost-efficient energy efficiency measures are not implemented due to the existence of various barriers to energy efficiency, in particular information-related barriers. Energy audits, and energy audit programs, are one of the most widespread and used instruments to overcome barriers to energy efficiency and promoting energy efficiency in industry. In particular when it is related to generic technologies and industrial small- and medium-sized enterprizes. Despite the importance of energy audits, and the fact that a large number of energy audit programs are in operation in the EU and across the world, there is a considerable lack of so called energy audit tools, i.e. a standardized tool to conduct the actual energy audit. The aim of this paper is to present an energy audit tool for industrial SMEs. The tool is based on more than three decades of research and teaching in the area of energy audting in industry, covering more than 300 energy audits, primarly conducted in Sweden. The developed tool uses unit process categorization, which enables energy auditors and energy program administrators to conduct energy audits in a standardized way.

Abstract [en]

Energy efficiency in industry could be promoted in various ways, energy management being one of the most promising tools. Apart from reduced energy use and costs, energy management has large opportunities for reducing environmental impact. However, research in this field is scarce, both as regards theoretical approaches and empirical studies like in-depth evaluation, underlining the importance of research in this field. The aim of this paper is to present results from an in-depth evaluation conducted in 2009-2010 of the extensive energy management practices undertaken by the Swedish pump manufacturers, ITT Water & Wasterwater. The company has received the Swedish Foundry Association’s energy prize and is considered the most energy efficient foundry in Sweden. The paper is unique as it presents new knowledge on how such in-depth evaluation could be conducted. Results indicate that the IT-based energy management system together with extensive implementation of energy efficiency measures have increased energy efficiency at the foundry by more than 27% for electricity and 68% for district heating.
