10 Facts about Energy Management

About 11% of all EU energy consumption can be economised cost-effectively through the adoption of more effective energy management. Energy management is a structured process through which organisations seek to optimise their energy use, by reducing energy waste, increasing energy-efficiency and increasing the share of renewable energy. Energy management standards, such as EN ISO 50001, offer a comprehensive approach to address the various behavioural, technological and regulatory requirements....

Hydraulic system - energy efficiency optimization

This paper describes the 4 step approach of KSB to optimize the energy efficiency of a hydraulic system. While focussing on the entire life-cycle, the aim is to lower operating costs. The approach starts with a system analysis to detect optimization potential and ends with usage of smart pump technology and services during operation - see also paper on industry 4.0 and smart pump technology. It contains links to details of each step of the process....

Motor efficiency improvements will only marginally increase the motor system’s efficiency, we must look to improve the efficiency of the equipment and systems being driven by the motor. Optimization measures such as predictive maintenance, avoiding oversized motors, and matching motor systems to specific needs, etc. could improve the energy efficiency of motor-driven systems significantly.
