Energy Efficiency

Efficient use of energy, often simply defined as “energy efficiency”, is aimed at reducing the energy consumption required to carry out a particular process .
There are always many motives for improving energy efficiency.
Reducing energy consumption reduces production costs and results in financial success. It also contributes to the emissions of “greenhouse gases” reduction, which are one of the causes of global warming of the planet. According to authoritative estimates, by improving energy efficiency in buildings, industry and transport, by 2050, world energy needs could be reduced by one third compared to the current one.
Energy efficiency and renewable energy sources are “two pillars” of sustainable energetics development and are of utmost importance in the energy priorities of each economy. For many countries, increasing energy efficiency is a matter of national security strategy, as it significantly reduces energy imports and slows down spending of its own resources.
Many industrial processes require large amounts of energy for a variety of production operations and process technologies (sugar production, petroleum processing …). Other processes require large amounts of heat and mechanical work, where natural gas, liquid fuels and electricity are used as energy resources. Furthermore, waste materials from some industries can be used for additional energy production (biogas, pyrolysis …). Due to the diversity of industrial operations, it is not possible to define all the options for energy optimization, although there are many energy saving technologies applicable in most industrial groups.
