Energy Efficient Production through a Modified–Green–PPC and a Communication Framework for the Energy Supply Chain to Manage Energy Consumption and Information

Conference paper
Part of the IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology book series (IFIPAICT, volume 397)


This paper presents a definition of an energy product model through a holistic approach of energy management that recognizes both the side of the energy provider and energy consumer. Therefore, it is needed to design a model for a “Green PPC“ that uses energy consumption as an additional planning and control criterion to enable a producing company to optimise and forecast its energy consumption. Furthermore, an inter-organisational information system will be described that allows an information exchange with the energy supplier to include the energy use in production planning.
