Digitalization to improve energy efficiency

04 / 03 / 2022

Did you know that March 5th is the World Energy Efficiency Day?

A date that has been repeated every year since the First International Meeting on Energy Efficiency in Austria in 1998 in order to raise awareness of the need to reduce energy consumption through reasonable and sustainable energy use. 

But what do we mean by energy efficiency? Optimizing and reducing the amount of energy we need to carry out an activity. According to data from the IDAE (Institute for Energy Saving and Diversification), industry represents 25% of total energy consumption in Spain.

The industry is currently facing the challenge of reducing its impact and being more sustainable in order to meet the decarbonisation objectives set by the European Union. In this context, improving energy efficiency becomes one of the main lines of action for companies since, in addition to benefiting financially from savings in production costs, it also allows them to reduce their emissions and environmental impact.

How? Currently there are technological solutions that allow monitoring and controlling the energy consumption of an industrial plant.

This is how we do it at DOMINION

At DOMINION we offer comprehensive services and turnkey projects to industrial companies, relying on innovation to improve the efficiency of their processes.

Through digital tools, sensors and other data acquisition and communication systems, we control production, logistics operations, carry out predictive maintenance tasks and monitor energy consumption (electricity, gas, water or fuel) in real time.

Once the information is acquired, we process it through our own interactive platform to create dashboards and reports that allow us to analyze our progress and compliance with the objectives (KPIs) set. This information and real-time alerts speed up the implementation of improvements to reduce costs and help us make better decisions to maximize efficiency.

Thanks to this system, industrial companies can directly achieve savings of between 15-20%, which helps them meet their ESG goals and reduce emissions.
