Reducing energy costs in production and increasing eco-efficiency with IIoT
Why should you introduce energy monitoring? There are three strong arguments in favor: meeting certification requirements, lowering your energy costs and reducing your carbon footprint.
Benefit from the three fundamental advantages
The introduction of an energy monitoring system can therefore not only help your company to reduce energy consumption and thus operating costs, it is also a key factor for a sustainable future. This is particularly important for energy-intensive industries such as stainless steel and steel service centers as well as manufacturing companies.
What does ISO 50001 certification mean for your company?
ISO 50001 is an internationally recognized standard that defines the requirements for an energy management system. Companies that are certified to this standard undertake to continuously analyze and improve their energy consumption. An intelligent energy monitoring system is therefore an essential tool for meeting these requirements. By implementing an energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001, your company can not only reduce energy consumption and cut costs. It also gives you access to tax and government benefits and helps you to permanently reduce your carbon footprint.
Reducing your CO2 footprint
Climate protection has increasingly become the focus of public attention in recent years. Sustainability has become a strategic competitive factor. It is therefore essential for your company to make a contribution to protecting the climate and reducing CO2 emissions now and in the future. But where to start? The answer is: only effective energy monitoring enables you to precisely monitor and analyze your energy consumption. Based on this, you can implement targeted and efficient measures to reduce CO2 emissions.
Reducing your energy costs
Energy efficiency and cost reduction go hand in hand. By identifying and exploiting potential savings, energy consumption and the associated costs can be permanently reduced. Intelligent energy monitoring is therefore both a tool for greater sustainability and an effective means of optimizing costs. An important factor here is peak shaving, which identifies and minimizes peak loads in electricity consumption. This is because these load peaks not only influence grid stability, but also the costs for your electricity consumption. Grid usage fees, which account for a considerable proportion of total costs, are based on the highest power consumption during the billing period, among other things. More consistent electricity consumption therefore leads to lower power price costs.
Digitalization of your energy management
Digitalization has far-reaching effects on companies' energy management. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) generates large amounts of data through the networking of devices and systems in production, which can be used to optimize energy efficiency. By using digital technologies, your company can monitor energy consumption in real time, analyze consumption patterns and derive optimization measures. Data analysis opens up new opportunities for you to gain insights into the energy efficiency of production processes and continuously improve them.
Concrete example of energy monitoring: toii®.Energy
toii®.Energy provides you with a powerful tool for optimizing your energy efficiency and achieving your sustainability goals. toii®.Energy is an integrated energy monitoring tool that helps you to make your energy consumption visible, identify potential savings and continuously improve your energy efficiency. toii®.Energy is a module of the IIoT platform toii® and makes it possible to collect and analyze data on energy consumption from various sources.
How toii®.Energy works
Measuring devices read data on the power consumption of machines and systems
toii®.Energy collects and interprets data from measurements
Power consumption is displayed graphically on clear dashboards
The highlight of toii®.Energy: The system records the development of consumption and enables precise allocation to the corresponding orders, cost centers and production units. This allows you to manage your energy costs more efficiently and make your production processes more sustainable.
Energy monitoring is more than just monitoring your energy consumption. It is a long-term, continuous strategy for reducing costs and CO2 emissions, optimizing processes and increasing your competitiveness. By using intelligent technologies, you can improve your energy efficiency and achieve your sustainability goals.
