A new system designed to reduce electricity consumption in the industrial sector has been developed as part of a European Union initiative.
The EU-funded EFICONSUMPTION project set out to improve the energy efficiency of industrial buildings based on the monitoring, modelling and smart management of electricity consumption.
To do this, it addressed the problem of electrical energy efficiency from the perspective of reducing harmful emissions while also benefiting the business more directly.
"Electric energy savings, on the one hand, thanks to a more efficient and effective consumption, in turn determines lower CO2 emissions," said Vicente Rodilla, project coordinator and CEO of CYSNERGY SL. "On the other, savings lead to business activities that are developed with a greater degree of sustainability and higher return."
According to the European Commission's CORDIS website, the project partners analysed real industrial data to implement improvements and modifications that reduced electricity consumption by up to 40%. This fed into the development of a smart consumption management system.
The new solution combines CYSMETER, a device for measuring the main electricity parameters at any point, and CYSCLOUD, a software cloud platform that receives real-time data and establishes efficient consumption patterns to reduce electricity consumption in accordance with the international standard ISO 50001.
The system has already been successfully tested at several plants in Spain and in other countries.
"Efficient consumption of electrical resources, predictive maintenance and electricity savings are the most relevant benefits of the EFICONSUMPTION technology, particularly for industrial production plants and buildings," Rodilla concluded. "It's a win-win proposition, profiting the EU economy, boosting the competitiveness of European industry and positively impacting the environment."

First of all, let’s define what the phrase of „energy-management system” means . An energy-management system includes measurement device sub-systems with the possibility of user-intervention on failure. By utilizing such a system we are able to continuously track and analyse consumption/quality patterns , and determine low-efficiency areas quickly and easily, giving the opportunity to respond fast and efficiently. Recently the ISO 50001 standard has been released, which defines in great detail the expected structure of an energy-management system and the requirements of its installation. Installing energy-management systems is outstandingly significant for enterprises to keep their market competency , which I would explain below. For the companies its a vital factor to create their products as economically as possible . With energy-management systems we are able to recognize the inefficient areas of our production-cycle. Some examples to define these statemen
Regardless of the environment, AVRepoorter Energy Management Software can be utilized to aid the users with the required information to help them understand, how their facilities work. In the following post we will take a brief look at some of these environments, and observe how our software can give you an edge over the competitors by the power of information.
