electricity coverage and when is happening according the
manufacturing schedule. Therefore, the tool allows you to
mix your real factory with "virtual" solutions before commit
an investment.

Apart from the technical solutions tested, we are compiling
into an e-book a set of best practices that gathers
interesting practical experience gained during our project.
For example, the installation of efficiency measures into the
factories has brought to the surface quite a large number
of small faults and mismatches in existing measurement
and control systems. The fact that one system provides the
required energy does not mean necessarily it is performing
in the most efficient way.

The final suggestion from our side to factories is that they
should embrace the change when it comes to energy
efficiency and rely on internal experience and energy
use data. Data is highly relevant to find opportunities for
improvement. As Peter Drucker said "If you can’t measure it,
you can’t improve it". l
