2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the 17th EurOMA Conference, 2010, 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
Previous research indicates a great potential within process industries regarding the use, distribution, and supply of energy, affecting manufacturing costs and revenues. The purpose of this study is thus to analyze, and to provide suggestions for improvements for, energy management in a process industry company. This will be done by mapping the energy flow and usage for a case company. The results of this study indicate that a strategic perspective on energy issues is necessary in order to reach the full potential of energy savings and for establishing an effective energy management system.
