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....
