Energy Consumption and Optimization in Process Industries

Faraz Ahmad | Dr. R. K. Jain [2]

Abstract: Developing countries and the economies in transition account for 60% of industry's total final energy consumption. Industry has significantly improved its energy efficiency in recent decades. But industry's total energy use continues to grow as a result of continuing large increases in the volume of production. Production is expected to continue to expand very substantially in the coming decades, particularly in developing countries. As a result, modest energy efficiency improvement rates will not be sufficient to stabilize or decrease the sector's energy demand in absolute terms. In order to make significant reductions, ambitious energy savings measures need to be implemented. The paper aims to have optimized and reliable production processes, provided energy efficiency measures are implemented in the correct way. There is hence, critical concern regarding the understanding of application issues involved in retrofitting. This essentially means the changes which might take place in the performance of the system or the machine, while carrying out retrofitting for improved energy efficiency.
