Energy Management for the
Food Industry

Energy Management in the Food & Drinks Industry

Food Energy ManagementEffective energy management has quickly become a business necessity in the food and drinks industry. With more competition, lower margins and higher energy costs, manufacturers are starting to change their way of thinking and rather than looking at energy as acceptable business expense, they are looking at how they can reduce not only their energy cost, but also the impact their business is having on the planet.

In the UK alone, the food processing industry is one of the largest single manufacturing sectors. The energy intensities associated with intensive heating, cooking, cooling, drying, storage and distribution are such that major efforts within the industry to reduce GHG emissions are recognised as essential.

To ensure that reduction strategies are successful, energy data will be required for all the different processes involved in the many ranges and types of food production. This will mean monitoring and measuring the energy associated with individual production lines and associated plant and equipment. The data collected will enable the carbon foot printing of not only the production facilities, but also that of the product.

Effective Energy Management

Their are two sides to effective energy management; measure & act. To be able measure energy effectively, manufacturers need information as to how, when and where energy is being consumed. They then need to be able to act on the information provided to them. Manufacturers will then be able to develop an energy management plan which is based on accurate consumption and spending. As a result, they can more accurately determine costs and make more intelligent business decisions to help minimize those costs.

Identifying the high intensity emissions and the causes, from’ goods in’ to ‘goods out’ and distribution, ensures that accurate and timely interventions can be made on a continuous improvement basis.
