Solutions for energy-efficiency for realising net-zero discrete manufacturing processes and value chains

General desciption of Solutions for energy-efficiency for realising net-zero discrete manufacturing processes and value chains:
  • European manufacturing industry can play a strong role in achieving a net-zero industry/society through producing green-tech products and systems as well as by realising circular economy (The production of green products can be allocated to scope 3 emissions).  In order to increase resilience to strong fluctuations in energy prices and energy supply variations/disruptions, European manufacturing can address more elements of reducing scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3 emissions, through:
    • Reduction of the use of fossil fuels in manufacturing (scope 1)
    • Reduction of the electric energy consumption by manufacturing (scope 2)
    • Adapt to the use of renewable energy in manufacturing  (scope 2)
    • Replacement of materials that require a lot of energy in the production phase (scope 3)
    • Waste reduction in manufacturing (scope 3)
    • Reduction of water or other technical fluids consumption (scope 3)
  • This involves the following approaches:
    • Standardised monitoring of energy-consumption and CO2-emissions in manufacturing sites and value chains, KPI measurement and management
    • Optimal scheduling (minimize heat waste, demand flexibility), waste heat reduction approaches, power consumption predictability (energy digital twin of production)
    • Optimization of energy and CO2-footprint in supply chains (supply security, costs, sustainability, flexibiity, value-chain integration).   This involves energy storage/recovery in production environments.  Industries thar are more integrative within an industrial ecosystem and also city infrastructures (water, electricity, oil/H2, etc.) into a sustainable and green ecosystem.
    • Supporting the use of renewable energy, by for instance on-site production of renewable energy or use of DC in industrial production.
