Optimising energy consumption in industry
Industrial processes account for two-thirds of the energy consumed by manufacturing plants. To help its clients cut their energy consumption, Actemium (VINCI Energies) has developed a comprehensive energy audit service. Actemium looks at the entire production system – from raw material input to product output – calculates the minimum energy requirement and compares this figure with the actual amount consumed by the site. It then draws up an action plan to cut energy consumption to a minimum. To develop advanced energy audit methodologies, Actemium works with the PS2E (Paris-Saclay Efficacité Énergétique) research institute, which brings together public and private players.
