Energy management: measuring industrial energy efficiency

An integrated approach to energy management

You probably have enough on your plate without having to worry about energy management, don't you? Maybe the political and social pressure to protect the climate will ultimately have a positive effect, as it forces us to save.

Electricity is expensive, but most systems have a lot of offer for reducing energy consumption, such as the cleverly designed and energy-efficient components and solutions from Festo. This not only reduces your CO2 emissions in the long term, but also helps to reduce the cost pressure too. This is best achieved if you have a comprehensive approach, at least that’s our experience from various industries. We understand the issues and challenges of energy efficiency and our specialists can offer the right products and appropriate support.

Energy management in factory automation

Applied research by Festo

Energy-adaptive manufacturing technology

Festo is part of the Kopernikus SynErgie project, where more than 80 partners are researching how energy-intensive industrial processes can be linked up to the fluctuating power generated by the wind and sun. The aim is to create a highly dynamic control platform that helps companies to automatically adapt to renewable energies.

Implementing energy-saving measures

In the EnAP project (energy-efficient drive technology in production), Festo is developing energy-efficient drive technologies for production together with packaging and filling system manufacturer KHS, manufacturer of wood processing machines Homag, and the Universities of Dresden (IFD) and Stuttgart (ISYS). The objective is to create an expert system that offers companies suitable energy-efficiency solutions together with the necessary components and simple operation.
