Energy Optimization

Energy management and optimization

Sustainable and efficient energy use should be integrated into every company's overall strategy. By actively managing energy use, companies have the opportunity to secure a competitive advantage over their competitors and minimize risks and costs.

Energy Optimization

With Energy Optimization, IGZ guarantees a detailed online analysis of energy use across all forms of energy at the entire company site. Starting from a site overview, the analysis can be refined down to product and process level as well as down to the individual consumer, e.g. a machine.

Correlations between the production process and energy consumption become highly transparent. Weak points in energy use can be quickly identified and specific action scenarios can be reliably derived.
Energy saving potentials become visible, energy flows of the systems and units are constantly monitored and evaluated in detail.

Load peaks and energy flows can easily be allocated to individual systems and machines according to their source. The controlled automatic shutdown of priority B consumers at times of day with increased energy consumption avoids load peaks and leads to considerable cost reductions. Supported by long-term evaluations of key energy figures and trends, meaningful energy reports can be generated, e.g. as a basis for audits or for long-term energy usage planning.

Energy management for cost-efficient production

With Energy Optimization, IGZ provides a solution that reduces costs by deriving potential energy savings. The solution makes it possible to visualize energy consumption comprehensively online and to control it in an energy-optimized manner. It also supports the use of new technologies such as smart grids. The need for efficient energy use is becoming increasingly urgent, particularly due to dwindling resources, rising and fluctuating energy costs, temporary supply disruptions and increasing pressure from legislators.

Possible forms of energy

  • Electricity
  • Gaseous media (e.g. natural gas, process steam, compressed air, ...)
  • Cooling energy
  • thermal energy
  • Liquid media (e.g. fresh water)
