  • Energy Intelligence: The Best Practice for Energy Management in the Manufacturing Industry

    Energy efficiency is essential for industrial companies to remain competitive, not only to reduce operating costs, but also to minimize their carbon footprint to meet the demands of leading retailers. While many companies have tried a variety of strategies to achieve lasting energy efficiency in their manufacturing processes, relatively few have succeeded.

    The Aberdeen Group, a leading analyst firm, recently completed a research study that identified the use of Energy Intelligence as a common best practice among leading manufacturing companies that have been most successful at managing and reducing their energy usage on an ongoing basis. According to their report, “Energy Intelligence: Creating Data Driven Efficiency”, companies utilizing this approach have achieved results that are significantly better than industry averages, giving them a clear competitive advantage.

    In this webinar, Matthew Littlefield, Senior Research Analyst of The Aberdeen Group, will define Energy Intelligence, explain the key findings of Aberdeen’s recent research on the subject and the benefits it has yielded to the companies that use it. Staffan Akerstrom of EPS Corp, the leading provider of Energy Intelligence solutions, will then provide details on successful industrial deployments of Energy Intelligence at several leading food and beverage manufacturers using xChange Point™, a real-time energy monitoring and management offering. In addition to reviewing the process and results of these case studies, EPS will identify important considerations as your company seeks to integrate this best practice for energy and carbon emissions reductions into your operations.

    Participant take-aways:

    • A copy of the “Energy Intelligence: Creating Data Driven Efficiency” report
    • An understanding of Energy Intelligence, how it works and the results it can deliver
    • Insight into the methods of effective deployment of Energy Intelligence in some of the leading manufacturers in the food, beverage and dairy industries
    • A roadmap for deploying Energy Intelligence in your enterprise
