Energy savings from smart operation of electrical, process and mechanical equipment

Solutions developed

Scientists in the EU-funded ENERGY-SMARTOPS project addressed the integrated control and operation of processes, rotating machinery and electrical equipment. The aim was to understand and demonstrate how integrated operation can achieve energy savings by optimization of the system as a whole. The project generated and tested creative ideas for energy savings in large scale industrial sites that were implemented in practical case studies.

Main results

The project enabled local activity to operate at a higher level as a European-wide initiative enabling individual research outputs to have a synoptic and coordinated impact. A public web-based dissemination site has captured and collected together the findings and experiences of the project, descriptions of the ESRs and a list of published papers.
