Abstract: Besides the development of future energy concepts, energy efficiency today offers a powerful and cost-effective tool for achieving a sustainable energy. Successful reduction of energy consumption and pollutant emissions requires an energy management system that helps to insure this goal. In the present work, an intelligent package for energy efficiency management is developed and is labelled Manager50001. It allows a detailed measurement and tracking of energy efficiency in contrast to measuring mere energy consumption. This package provides full transparency about the energy potential consumed and the improvement process of the installation. This work shows how the difficult task to measure and improve energy efficiency in industrial process can be mastered. For a real implementation, the results are presented and show the benefit of such a transparent visualisation of energy efficiency.

Keywords: energetic management system; energy efficiency; software hardware development.
