Abstract

The high levels of energy consumed in industrial automated systems such as conveying, packaging, hoisting systems, automated machine solutions, and system of systems, require an optimal regulation of energy consumption. Technology has a key role in order to achieve this goal, for this reason, global market leaders in the electrical context are developing new models and tools towards a sustainable energy management. A new strategy based on a four-step method to generate benefits in two ways: energy cost savings to the customer and energy efficiency to the environment, and the implementation of new libraries added to an automation programming software platform makes energy monitoring process an easier job. This paper focuses in a literature review of energy management, system of systems, industrial automation technologies, and a “work in progress” case study applied to the new energy efficiency strategies carried out by Schneider Electric towards sustainable industrial automated systems.
