Energy Management

One of the main goals of energy management is to provide methods and approaches which have as a result to minimize the economic cost as well as to minimize possible negative environmental effects. One definition of the energy management term that can be found in the relevant literature is the following: “The judicious and effective use of energy to maximize profits (minimize costs) and enhance competitive positions” (see Turner, Kennedy and Capehart (2008). Guide to Energy Management, 6th edition, The Fairmont Press). Another definition can be formulated as follows “The strategy of adjusting and optimizing energy, using systems and procedures so as to reduce energy requirements per unit of output while holding constant or reducing total costs of producing the output from these systems”. In other words, Energy Management strategies refer to those actions and polices that seek to achieve a) the minimum cost in the use of energy sources and b) the minimum output of waste (minimise environmental effects) during the production process, without affecting in both cases the quality of the product.
