EEA Grants

Programme for Research, Science and Technology Environment and Climate Change

Through the EEA Grants and Norway Grants, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway contribute to reducing social and economic disparities and to strengthening bilateral relations with the beneficiary countries in Europe. The three countries cooperate closely with the EU through the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA).

For the period 2009-14, the EEA Grants and Norway Grants amount to €1.79 billion. Norway contributes around 97% of the total funding. Grants are available for NGOs, research and academic institutions, and the public and private sectors in the 12 newest EU member states, Greece, Portugal and Spain. There is broad cooperation with donor state entities, and activities may be implemented until 2016.

Key areas of support are environmental protection and climate change, research and scholarships, civil society, health and children, gender equality, justice and cultural heritage.

Presentation of the project

It is a known fact that the specific actions aimed at reducing energy costs are not able to consolidate the savings achieved after the implementation of energy saving projects derived therefrom if detailed monitoring of settlements made are performed. Thisusuallyinvolvesthe disappearance of these savings in time, mainly due to the lack of reliable methods for monitoring the efficiency of the relevant consumers of the plant.

Energy Management Systems (EMS) aim to respond to this situation by identifying energy efficiency indicators (EEI) and influencing variables which impact on the operation, monitoring of these indicators and their continuous comparison with the objectives of previously calculated minimum consumption and setting conducive to properly structure the system documentation and publicity of the same organizational procedures.

The ISO 50001 standard for energy management systems, published in 2011, which stipulates general objectives for energy management as well as the elements that should form a SGE. However, no set guidelines for the design, development and implementation of energy management tools that allow monitoring, analyzing and optimizing the efficiency of the plant, ensuring optimal operation continuously over time.

This project aims to respond to this problem, with the final result the development of a tool for measuring, monitoring and optimization of energy consumption that allows to develop a successful energy management of the plant.

Project scope and objectives

The aim of this project is the development of a software for the energy management and operational optimization in industrial plants which, through data extraction, monitoring, metering and application of data mining techniques, provides the user with a comprehensive overview of the energy structure of the process, as well as real-time guidelines of its best achievable operation. This work is a further development of former studies within the line of research of the company; it involves the investigation of advanced techniques of energy efficiency improvement analysis, data gathering, processing, modelling and optimization, for the subsequent implementation of the developed tools as commercial software. The investigation will specially focus on real time optimization, matter that frequently presents high technical difficulties in process plants, whose complexity often affects the reliability of results if no advanced data mining techniques are implemented. Business Intelligence technology would be used as a developing environment, with the aim of creating products available for its implementation in a wide range of industrial plants (chemical, petrochemical, agri-food, power plants, etc).

Current situation

The project has finished successfully.

Achievements and results in the project

Although industry plants become more and more conscious about the importance of saving energy, it is well known that punctual actions focused on reducing energy consumption are not able to consolidate energy savings over time. ENMO project arises to give response to this problem, by the development of an advanced software for the metering, energy savings following and optimization of energy consumption. The Company will centre its commercial activity in most intensive energy consumption plants in industry. The aim of this project has been the development of a software for energy management and operational optimization in industrial plants, which provides the user with a comprehensive overview of the energy structure of the process, as well as real-time guidelines of its best achievable operation, giving this companies a considerable impact in reducing their energy bills.

ENMO project has allowed the success of this objective.
