Solution: Over a 9-month period, the system implementation project consolidated all primary data sources regarding electricity consumption and equipment operating modes within a module for accounting, distribution, and analysis of specific consumption. This foundation led to the launch of modules for factor analysis of the causes of increased specific consumption, potential calculation, and planning of measures to reduce specific consumption indicators. Additionally, all core regulatory and reference modules were implemented, as mandated by the ISO 50001 standard. These include modules for energy audit management, regulatory document registry, idea database, benchmarking, assignment management, and more.

Energy Management Information System: The Key to Optimizing Energy Consumption

Challenge: A large hydrocarbon processing chemical plant remained committed to its goal of implementing a full-scale Energy Management system according to ISO 50001. In addition to official certification under this standard, the company identified two primary business goals for the implementation: reducing the specific consumption of purchased electricity and lowering the specific greenhouse gas emissions per unit of production. After completing the initial phase of establishing organizational and methodological support for the Energy Management system, the company, with our assistance, proceeded to automate it.
Result: Implementing the energy efficiency management information system enabled the company to fully prepare for ISO 50001 certification and conduct all necessary audits regularly through the information system. The first Energy Efficiency Improvement Program, developed using the system, generated a pool of measures offering a calculated and justified effect of reducing energy consumption by 3.7%. The execution of planned measures demonstrated 90% accuracy in such planning.

Continued development of the methodological basis for standard energy efficiency improvement measures suggests an anticipated annual reduction in consumption of 1.5-2%.
