Abstract

A major share of the primary energy consumed globally has to be accounted to manufacturing, as well as related emissions have to. Improvement of energy efficiency in factories is therefore a key driver to support the achievement of the European 20/20/20 goals. Hence, industry has to rethink current approaches about design and management of manufacturing systems to take a significant step towards energy-efficient factories.
