FEMS (Factory Energy Management System) / Renkei Control for Utility Facilities

Sectors:
Objective:
Opportunities enabled:
Country:
Japan
Maturity:

Minimizing energy consumption (or CO2 emission) by optimizing equipment selection and load distribution of energy conversion and storage facilties which comprise utility plants.

Cost of primary energy in utility plants could reach as much as 10 million USD/yr. Typical application includes refineries, petrochemical, paper, cement, textiles, fertilizer, large FA plants, district heating and cooling systems.

Organisation providing the technology:
Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry
Endorsing entity:

Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Japan

Benefits:

Energy savings of 3-7% of primary energy consumed in the facilities concerned, compared with the case when FEMS is not introduced.

Reduction of energy cost burden of operators.

Differentiators:

Calculation of optimal equipment selection and load distribution by mixed integer program or equivalent optimization computation methods, and implementing with guidance or automatic control.

Investments required:

Ca. 0.5 to 2 million USD depending on size and composition.

Timeframe:

Ca. 6 months depending on size and composition.

Countries where implemented:
Indonesia
