Understanding energy use in manufacturing

Organiser: Smart Manufacturing Data Hub

Venue: Virtual

Address:

Date & Time: 7 Feb 2023 - 9:30 am-11:00 am

As we all know, the cost of energy has skyrocketed in recent months, and manufacturers particularly are seeing these increased costs eating away at profit margins.

Would you like to know when, where and how you are using the most energy in your business? Do you see unexplained ‘phantom’ energy use when machines are off, or your factory is closed?

The Smart Manufacturing Data Hub is hosting an online workshop which will explain how to get started or become more proficient in collecting energy data and monitoring usage. Our partners from the Energy Systems Catapult will give you easy to use tools to get useful insight and practical tips on cutting energy consumption using your energy data without impacting productivity.

We will also show you how other manufacturers have successfully used their energy data to make business decisions, reduce energy spend and improve sustainability.
