Energy management practices in Swedish energy-intensive industries

  title={Energy management practices in Swedish energy-intensive industries},
  author={Patrik Thollander and Mikael Ottosson},
Previous studies point out a large (untapped) potential for energy efficiency in industry through the adoption of energy management practices. The aim of this paper is to describe and analyze energy management practices in two different Swedish energyintensive industries: the pulp and paper industry and the foundry industry. The results show that one third of the studied mills and about two fifths of the studied foundries do not allocate energy costs by means of sub-metering, which probably… CONTINUE READING
