The economic and energy crises of recent years have driven companies to seek solutions to optimize resources and reduce energy costs. Adopting production energy efficiency techniques has become crucial for companies aiming to grow and improve their profitability.

The use of IoT technologies for production industrial energy efficiency proves to be an effective solution to address the issues of resource waste and excessive energy consumption in businesses.

Highly energy-consuming machinery, often of older generation, that is not monitored or simply not digitalized, can become a major issue for manufacturing companies.

On June 14th, we had the opportunity to explore this topic with Federico Trippi, CEO of RedTech, discussing the importance of electrical and energy monitoring and the key parameters to consider when implementing an energy efficiency strategy within your company.

Production energy efficiency: Which KPIs to monitor? 

In the current digital age, Italian manufacturing companies are experiencing an unprecedented transformation. To remain competitive and improve the efficiency of their production processes, many of them are embarking on a path of Industry 4.0 digitalization. Within this context, electrical and energy monitoring emerges as one of the most important challenges to address.

On June 14th, we had the privilege of participating in a meeting that focused precisely on this topic. The event featured Federico Trippi, CEO of R&D Telecommunication and Energy, who delved into the subject with great expertise and passion.

During the presentation, Federico emphasized the importance of electrical and energy monitoring for Italian manufacturing companies. He highlighted the need to understand the key parameters to consider when implementing an energy efficiency strategy within companies.

Two questions stood out among those addressed during the interview: “Why is it important to monitor the company’s facilities from an electrical and energy perspective?” and “What are the most relevant KPIs for assessing a company’s energy consumption and impact?”

The answer to the first question is evident: electrical and energy monitoring provides companies with a comprehensive view of their consumption, making it possible to identify any waste and inefficiencies. This enables timely corrective measures and the implementation of targeted strategies for enhancing production energy efficiency in production, reducing costs and minimizing environmental impact.

As for the second question, KPIs are fundamental for assessing a company’s energy consumption and impact. They include parameters such as energy consumption per unit produced, machinery and plant efficiency, as well as the percentage of renewable energy sources utilization.

The event conclused with a brief demo of Zerynth’s IoT solution, showcasing how energy monitoring takes place within the Zerynth Platform. Being able to monitor the electrical consumption of factories in real-time and remotely is an enticing prospect for Italian manufacturing companies, who see IoT technologies as an opportunity to optimize their production energy efficiency processes.

Upcoming Event

Giorgio Beato, Vice President of A.I.MAN. (Italian Maintenance Association), will be the keynote speaker for our upcoming webinar on June 21st. He will share insights into the main needs of Italian manufacturing industries in optimizing industrial machinery maintenance, mitigating machine downtime, and preventing inefficiencies.

During the interview, Giorgio will address questions such as:

  1. What are the key features that maintenance management tools should possess to be user-friendly, immediate, and intuitive?
  2. What are the crucial data to extract from machinery to enable effective maintenance monitoring?

The webinar will conclude with a 10-minute demo of the Zerynth Platform, showcasing how it supports maintenance activities by managing machine hours, residual times, tracking interventions, and sends necessary alerts to identify potential machine downtime or excessive costs, enabling timely decision-making.
