Introduction Introduction

Energy E ciency in Industry

Welcome to the Intelligent Energy e-library (IEe-library)

Why an Intelligent Energy e-library?
Climate change and security of energy supply are two major challenges needing urgent action from the EU. They have common causes and common solutions. Leading the way on a response to both these challenges, European Heads of State and Government signed up in March 2007 to binding targets for 2020: to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20%; to meet 20% of the EU’s energy needs from renewable sources; to source 10% of transport fuels from renewable sources; and to improve energy efficiency by 20%. The implementation of EU and national climate change and energy policies requires measures to support activity ‘on the ground’, enabling actors across Europe to tap into sustainable energy business opportunities and jobs, opening markets for new technologies, and making Europe’s economy more competitive. The IEe-library is the result of work by the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) to bring together in one place a range of relevant tools and guidebooks on energy efficiency, renewable energy applications and sustainable mobility. It includes items funded under the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) programme and a selection of instruments picked from over 2,500 EU funded projects (under Altener and Save, CIVITAS, Structural and regional funds, LIFE, RTD 2002-2006 and Phare). In addition, nationally and regionally funded tools and guidebooks have been included from the EU 27 Member States, Norway, Croatia, Iceland, the US, Canada and some international organisations. The aim of this inventory is to disseminate good practice, advice and practical instruments throughout Europe and beyond. Here businesses, energy professionals, researchers and policymakers alike can profit from a wide range of freely available material to help them in their everyday work. The IEe-library will also be a good starting point for (future) applicants and contractors to the IEE programme, to allow their projects to save time and costs by profiting from available tools and guidebooks rather than duplicating them. All the tools and guidebooks included in this inventory are available free, ready to download and use. Most are in English, but many are also available in other European languages.

Introduction
How is the IEe-library structured?
This is one of four publications listing tools and guidebooks included in the free online IEe-library. This publication focuses on energy efficiency in industry and includes tools and guidebooks aimed at facilitating the dissemination of energy management and energy saving practices and technologies in industry. To facilitate quick browsing, tools and guidebooks have been organised into specific sub-categories wherever appropriate: energy audits, energy management/benchmarking and energy saving measures. In the three other publications in this series, users can find information on local energy management (sustainability of residential and non residential buildings, green procurement and energy planning); renewable energy applications (sizing and feasibility of applications); and energy aspects of transport (mobility management and alternative modes of transport).

Who is the IEe-library for?
Tools and guidebooks listed in this thematic publication are aimed at advising or providing practical instruments especially for energy managers and owners of industrial plants and SMEs. You can find tools and guidebooks on energy management and energy saving technologies and measures which can be applied in industry. For example: ● If you are an energy manager of an SME or of a large industrial plant and you are interested in learning more on energy management, here you can find training tools or guidebooks on energy management (what it is, how to set it up and how to maintain it) as well as action plan models. There are step-by-step guides to identify current energy consumption for different areas within the company, which will help you to set a baseline for continuous monitoring, to identify areas of improvement and to provide guidance on how to eliminate energy losses. Aids such as energy audit models and calculation tools (from quick energy checks to in depth audits and software tools) are also provided. ● If you are an owner of a SME or of a large industrial plant and are interested in substituting traditional energy production technologies with cogeneration or polygeneration here you can find tools which enable you to size or select design parameters for a new system or to modify a system already in use. Assessment tools and simulation tools will help you to identify if there is the potential for financial savings and a reduction of CO2 emissions and what type of generation would be best suited to the facility. ● If you are an energy manager or an energy service company (ESCO) looking into energy saving measures, here you can find tips for saving energy, guidebooks with lists of measures, and technology assessment tools to help you evaluate your current technologies and decide whether to install new end-use energy efficient technologies. You will also find guidebooks, feasibility studies and software models which will enable you to estimate system installation costs, energy savings, payback period (based on fuel and electricity costs) and annual maintenance costs, and to perform “what-if” analysis for various utility costs. ● Other target audiences such as financial operators, installers and technology suppliers can also find advice, guidebooks, monitoring systems, calculation tools, decision support systems and other tools to help them in their job. If you are looking for energy efficiency measures for non residential or residential buildings, including energy efficient or renewable energy heating and cooling applications, or for ways of greening your procurement, you will find a large quantity of tools and guidebooks in the IEe-library under the theme of local energy management.

How to use the IEe-library
The quickest and easiest way to use this library is simply to go to the section on the topic that interests you most and browse through the descriptions of the tools and guidebooks (see the table on p. 3 for an indication of the intended target audiences for each topic and the types of tools and guidebooks that can be found under that topic). An interactive online version of the IEe-library can be found at www.iee-library.eu. You are encouraged to submit new tools or guidebooks or updated versions through the website. In this way you can help to develop the library and ensure that it is a source of continuous innovation. As well as this opportunity to contribute to the library, the online version provides the following facilities: ● Advanced search: you can search tools and guidebooks by selecting multiple criteria such as topic, target audience, type of tool, keyword, language and country. ● Download: download the tools and guidebooks you need free of charge. ● Rating: you can recommend to other users the tools that you find most useful. This will ensure that this website is maintained as an instrument of excellence for policymakers, energy professionals and researchers alike throughout Europe.

FR Calculation Tool | Energy Audit Model Local/Regional/National Awareness Raising | Energy consumption | Monitoring

TA R G E T PU B L I C : Energy Managers | Industry | SMEs

This technical document is intended to facilitate the implementation of an analytical account of the flow of energy within companies. It should provide the users with a better idea of these energy and fluid flows which will allow them to monitor their energy efficiency long term, within sectoral agreements. It is founded on several years experience in energy auditing, generally within industries, using the EPS method (Energy Potential Scan). This method was originally developed in the Netherlands with NOVEM (the Netherlands Agency for Energy and the Environment) support. Although ECONOTEC (energy and environmental consultants) progressively evolved from the original method, the terminology used is the same (ECA for Energy Consumption Analysis, efficiency scans for the identification of improvements, etc.). The main issue in implementing an analytical energy account is to build a matrix with the different types of energy produced, either internally (compressed air, vapor, etc.) bought or used (buildings, production, utilities). At the end of this first step, the company will be aware of who uses what and how. This awareness can bring a new perspective to production processes and costs.

The Chilled Water System Analysis Tool (CWSAT) helps to determine the energy requirements of a water system and to evaluate opportunities for energy and cost savings. The user is invited to provide basic information about the equipment and operation of an existing configuration to calculate current energy consumption, and can then select proposed equipment or operational changes for comparison. The results of this analysis will help to quantify the potential net benefits of improvements to the chilled water system, by calculating the energy consumption of the proposed system and comparing these results with those generated for the existing system. Registration is required in order to use the tool.

This software tool is designed to help calculate the energy efficiency of motor driven systems. It provides a ‘guided tour’ to help understand how the software works and how it identifies the priority actions for energy savings. The tool can be used to assess different types of motor driven systems: compressed air systems, pumping systems, ventilation systems, refrigeration and cooling systems, and motor drive systems. The software analyses the main motor driven systems and shows how their energy efficiency can be improved. A specific technical module for the quality of electrical industrial networks has also been included in this software. As the user progresses through the tool’s steps, it is possible to build an action plan to integrate the Motor Challenge Programme into the organisation being assessed, which should result in energy savings. The tool can be used to undertake a new evaluation of a company or to analyse an existing study.

These guidelines were developed as part of a project for Long-Term Agreements (LTAs) for improvement of Energy Efficiency (EE) in Bulgarian industrial enterprises. The role of the Energy Potential Scanning (EPS) during the preparation of an LTA is to identify indicative targets for EE improvements in the respective industrial enterprises. These indicative targets become subject for negotiations in the LTA. The guidelines describe the concept of an EPS as a process resembling the energy audits but including greater degree of participation by members of staff and the organization and planning of the EPS. In particular the following stages are described: (1) informative meeting for getting management commitment, establishment of a team for the EPS, planning of the activities and coordination of joint activities with an external consulting company; (2) Methods for energy consumption analysis; (3) Approach for identifying the potential for EE improvement; (4) Preparation of a program for improvement of EE. There are appendices with models for energy balances. The information in the guidelines is supported by tables and graphics. There is also a reference list with related topics and relevant links. The guidelines allow the management of industrial enterprises to organize the process of EPS with the participation of the staff and external consultant company.

This is an Excel spreadsheet for the Energy Management Standard (EMS) for the textiles industry to help determine the costs and the energy use of electricity in the industry. Although it was developed for textile industries it could be used by other industry sectors. The spreadsheet is laid out in 10 different sections that can be completed, and provides audit conclusions at the end. The sections include basic information about the company for which an audit is being done, general data, financial data and consumption data. The spreadsheet then goes through process flow sections: check points, production flow, and energy flow; followed by equipment: productive equipment, auxiliary equipment and building data. In this way the pertinent data about energy use by a facility or company can be collected.

This is an energy audit tool for industry, consisting of three levels. It is intended for use by those responsible for energy audits in industry. For each audit the applicability of using renewable energy is assessed to the extent required by the guidelines developed by the Finnish Ministry of Trade and Industry. The audit can be conducted on two different scales. The ‘overview’ approach audits the energy efficiency of the buildings and items involved in the process, whereas the ‘analysis’ approach maps the opportunities for energy savings within the industry. The energy overview tool is intended for industries where there is no scope for energy efficiency within the process itself (for example if the process has already been audited recently). The energy analysis tool audits all the primary and secondary energy flows of an industrial process.

TA R G E T PU B L I C : Industry | Public Authorities | SMEs

The aim of this blue print is to suggest a Bulgarian-specific model for Long-Term Agreements for energy efficiency in industry in order to apply a voluntary approach for the achievement of improvements in this area. The need for a Bulgarianspecific model became clearer in the light of the preparation of Letters of Intent (preliminary non-binding agreements) between the Ministry of Economy and Energy and industrial associations and branch organizations. In order to clarify the meaning of the Long-Term Agreements and the future steps to be taken, the following are described: (1) Suggested type and basic design characteristics of Long-Term Agreements, suitable for Bulgarian conditions; (2) Procedure for entering into Long-Term Agreements; (3) Activities of all parties, involved in the Agreements. These type of agreements will be concluded individually with each interested industrial company. A bottom-up decentralized approach is suggested for the identification of targets. It is based on Evaluations made by the respective companies, in conformity with branch-specific Guidelines. Three types of targets over a 10-year period are considered: (1) Minimum targets – for effects resulting from energy management improvements and good housekeeping measures; (2) Realistic targets – corresponding to energy efficiency investments, which can be performed by the companies themselves; (3) Ambitious targets, implying public support. The targets in each individual Long-Term Agreement will be subject to negotiations and at least some of them will be conditional to the provision of different types of public support for the energy efficiency activities.

These energy management guidelines were created within the framework of the EMS-Textile project which addressed the promotion of energy management practices in the textile industries of Greece, Portugal, Spain and Bulgaria. The first section of the guide contains the Energy Management Standard. The second section contains guidance for its implementation. The guidelines do not provide specific step by step instructions for every clause of the standard but highlight the most important aspects of energy management and present respective good practices. The proposed Energy Management Standard is suitable for typical Southern European companies and for SMEs in general. The standard can be adjusted to the current and future needs of each company. Although the project was focused on the textile industries of the participating countries, its dissemination actions will also target other industrial sectors and European countries.

This is an environmental management standard that provides a framework for the development and implementation of an energy management system that can easily be applied by small companies. It contains recommendations and guidance but no obligatory requirements. It is not designed as a basis for external verification, but as a supportive tool for SMEs striving to achieve continual energy performance improvement. Enterprises can choose which clauses to include in their energy management system according to their needs and characteristics. They can later adopt more clauses during the continuous improvement process. This standard is goal-oriented, focusing on the achievement of high energy performance and the abatement of unnecessary energy consumption. The quality of the energy management can be derived from the energy performance results obtained.

These guidelines bring both results and tools for benchmarking energy consumption to dressmaking industry professionals. In 2002-2003, a study done by ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency) and IFTH (Infotech (USA) Inc) demonstrated that the sector could potentially save a large amount of electric energy, representing up to 15 % of the industry’s electric bill. These guidelines present the results both from the field study and from an inquiry on energy consumption in the dressmaking industry. This encourages companies to use the criteria available to compare their performance to other companies in the sector. Good practices present solutions related to compressed air, lighting, production machinery and equipment, and the monitoring of energy consumption. Feedback from concrete experiences show three examples of pre-diagnosis within companies on concrete actions and the results that could be achieved in terms of energy savings. The results presented encourage benchmarking between one company and others in the sector and give guidelines for improvement based on analysis and experience.

The Quick Plant Energy Profiler, or Quick PEP, is an online software tool provided by the U.S. Department of Energy to help industrial plant managers identify how energy is being purchased and consumed at their plant. The tool also helps users to identify potential energy and cost savings. Quick PEP is designed so that the user can complete a customised and printable plant profile in around one hour. It should be seen as a scoping tool that provides rough estimates rather than an accurate engineering analysis tool. Quick PEP provides a quick diagnosis of the overall energy use of a plant and provides a plan for further investigation into identifying opportunities for savings. It does this by: providing an overview of the amount of energy that the plant purchases and generates; identifying the major industrial systems that consume that energy; describing the plant’s savings potential; and highlighting some specific resources and tools that can be used to realise savings. An online tutorial explains the information that is needed to complete the profile. This tool has optional registration. By registering, this will log and save the data on the website instead of on the user’s computer.

and equipment in the plastics processing industry. Manufacturers of machinery and equipment quote the cost of delivering their product to the customer, and purchasing decisions are often based on these initial costs. However, due to energy savings throughout the lifetime of a piece of equipment (and other costs) the lifetime cost of a piece of equipment is very different. This is certainly the case with all-electric injection moulding machines, which are typically more expensive to buy than hydraulic machines, but over their entire lifetime are substantially less expensive to own and run due to the energy savings. The RECIPE ‘cost of ownership model’ enables processors to calculate the cost of operating a piece of equipment over its projected lifetime, based on energy efficiency and projected usage. The reports produced will show comparisons of the lifetime cost of different machines as well as the differences in cost when producing a specific part.

This guide looks at the use of phase change materials for cold and heat Storage above 0°C in the plastics industry. It addresses the storage of coolants and how to counter the typical use of refrigeration plants that are usually dimensioned on the basis of the maximum occurring load. This maximum load situation will, in many plants, only occur for a limited period. In practice, this implies that the dimensioned capacity of the plant is frequently two or three times higher than the average daily load during, resulting in non-optimal part load operation for the majority of the time. This guide aims to help reduce the load by providing tips on how cooling could be produced in this period and used only when the need arises.

Energy Saving Measures

government and industry appear to be an attractive alternative. The Dutch voluntary agreement scheme, called Long Term Agreements (LTAs), has proven to be a flexible cost-effective instrument that can complement the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) to better exploit the full energy efficiency potential in industry. Several countries have expressed their interest in the Dutch approach. This paper addresses the transfer of the Dutch LTA approach to other countries, based on experiences in Bulgaria and Romania. In particular, the paper describes the key factors which determine the success of the LTAs and discusses an approach (including indicators) for successful transfer of Dutch LTA knowledge to a different economic, legal, and socio-cultural context. A first project on LTA knowledge transfer in Bulgaria shows that the LTA concept can be transferred successfully to other countries, if the transfer process is divided into phases, and cultural aspects and key factors for success are taken into account.

TA R G E T PU B L I C : Energy Managers | Industry | SMEs

In the handbook “Energy saving opportunities within compressed air systems” it is explained in detail how to conduct an energy audit of a compressed air system. The main target group of this handbook is energy managers within industrial companies. The purpose of this handbook is to help its users understand energy saving opportunities. Approximately 70% of all industrial companies use compressed air for some aspect of their operations. Compressed air is generated on-site, giving users a lot of control over usage and air quality. On average, compressed air represents approximately 10% of industrial electricity consumption. The most frequent reasons of the increased costs of compressed air are uncontrolled leakage of air and its inadequate usage. All this is an integral part of activities related to the maintenance. Another important area which provides performance improvement opportunities is related to the improvement of the operational practice of compressed air systems. All the above mentioned issues are well addressed within this handbook. The handbook contains many useful practical examples for the improvement of the compressed air system.
