The industrial energy sector is understood as the use of energy in industry to produce goods and services. This includes electricity production, heat generation and the manufacture of chemicals, metals and other products.
In this sector, use is made of different energy sources such as fossil fuels, renewable energies and nuclear energy.
An MES system can help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of industrial processes. Thanks to all this information we can obtain, analyse, control and optimise, and thus provide real-time reports on equipment performance, energy consumption and the efficiency of all processes. This allows decisions to be made regarding production processes, business strategy and the improvement of energy management.
The MES system also helps to comply with all environmental regulations and standards, as one of the major concerns of the sector is to reduce the carbon footprint. Through process monitoring and traceability, it issues compliance reports that tell us the status of our production, and whether it meets the standards imposed by the industry.
Another advantage of the MES system is the possibility to plan and optimise the production of renewable energy, such as solar or wind energy, and to monitor the performance of wind farms and solar panels, obtaining customisable reports with the most significant values.
In addition, the MES software helps to improve the safety and reliability of the energy supply, as we can monitor equipment in real time through data acquisition, providing a true picture of production conditions.
Thanks to this analysis, detailed information about your production process is provided (e.g. performance, consumption, breakdowns), obtaining greater transparency in production, helping to find and resolve bottlenecks, breakdowns, inefficiencies and downtimes with the aim of optimising the performance and operation of the production process. All this generates a positive impact on sustainability and the environment.
