Energy Tips From Our Energy Expert Magnus Holfelt, Part 2

There are many examples of industries that have an unnecessarily high energy consumption during times when operations are at a standstill, on vacations, weekends and long weekends. Because of this, securing the lowest possible base load outside production hours is an activity that all industries should work on.

Connect Purpose to Technology

Are you tasked with streamlining your energy use or reporting energy data to the company's scope 3 reporting? As a leader, you need to set a goal and create conditions for everyone to contribute within the framework of their normal work flow. Leadership cannot be done by anyone else, but information and nudging will do a large part of the work towards the goal in everyday life.

Is the time before the next growth phase used optimally? 

There is talk that the economy could possibly start to lighten up in the second half of 2024. Everyone is looking forward to production starting to spin again after 2023's uncertainty and slowdown. Although the PMI for the industry fluctuates up and down on a monthly basis, the trend has been positive for a few months now, which may indicate that the bottom is starting to be reached. Sweden and the USA have the most positive purchasing managers if you disregard China, which is in growth according to Silf and Swedbank's Purchasing Managers Index for December 2023.

Extreme cold and high electricity prices - how should companies think then?

Winter has swept across the country with extreme cold, resulting in increased electricity use to heat houses and premises, among other things. In these cold times, every megawatt counts, and pricing becomes sensitive to supply and demand. The coming winter and spring's price development is highly dependent on the weather, and the long-term forecast currently points to a cold January, with winds also expected to be weaker than normal.

What is the difference between a control system and an Energy Management System?

The simple answer is that a control system and Energy Management System (EMS) have different purposes and areas of focus, although they may partially overlap. An Energy Management System (EMS) makes it possible to understand the energy use in a facility or industrial operation, i.e. to help the business reduce its energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions by identifying and managing energy losses and leakage. While a control system is a broader term that can be used in areas such as industrial automation, process control, machine control and building automation. Although the systems may overlap in terms of energy use, there are reasons to use an EMS in addition to a control system to improve energy efficiency and achieve optimal energy use.
