Global Electronics Manufacturer

Integrated energy management system based on data analytics

"“Since real-time monitoring for energy consumption status is possible, we can easily find out waste factors of every production process & facility and promptly response.""

Energy management Part Leader, Global Electronics Manufacturer


This electronics manufacturer pays USD 135 million for year as an energy expense. Also, energy efficiency was an important task to secure competitiveness in manufacturing as their energy cost kept increasing.

The partner thought it is essential to do the activities to analyze the energy consumption status and energy efficiency by process and facility.
However, the partner is producing various products and has a variety of facilities in a large workplace.
That disables the partner to respond to the challenges with limited on-site activities by relevant workforce.

To that end, there was a need for the system to analyze the energy consumption status and energy efficiency real time.
The partner also wanted to conduct sustainable activities for energy reduction by analyzing causes of efficiency change and establishing an immediate response system.

Increase in energy usage
Increase in energy cost every year due to the increase in energy usage and cost
Deteriorated work efficiency
Impossible to conduct efficient energy reduction activities due to response focusing on site
Impossible to have sustainability for tasks
Difficulty in continuing activities as quantitative assessment of energy reductionactivities is impossible


Energy-related data integration and integrated energy management system for the entire company have been implemented.

[Energy monitoring]
