In this chapter the developed simulation based concept for improving energy efficiency will be applied to several case studies in order to underline applicability and potentials of the approach. Thereby different cases are being considered to show the opportunities. Each case will follow the steps of the presented application cycle. While the developed concept is generic in nature, the examples will underline case specific implementation and practical implications of each step. The case studies are based on real data from several companies; for reasons of confidentiality many values will just be given in a relative manner.
