Smart industry: how to meet the industry challenges of the future thanks to data?

Smart industry relies on data intelligence to improve energy performance and profitability in the industrial sector.

Energisme is an expert in the field of data management and helps industrial companies to collect, analyze and exploit data to better meet the challenges of the industry of the future.

Energy performance at the heart of the smart industry

Implement an energy management system

Implement an energy management system

Industrial companies are committed to improving their energy performance to meet regulatory objectives and support their competitiveness. 

 

To do so, they must be able to :

  • Accurately and continuously measure the energy performance of its industrial sites
  • Identify areas for optimization
  • Evaluate the relevance of its actions 

These issues are addressed by the implementation of an energy management system. The solution developed by Energisme helps companies in the industrial sector to manage their energy performance through data.

Indeed, the platform facilitates the deployment of an energy metering plan. This metering plan is based on 4 main steps:

  • An energy performance diagnosis of the industrial site
  • Recommendations on the Energy Performance Indicators (EPI) to measure and the sensors to use
  • monitoring of production process measurements
  • Analysis and exploitation of the collected data, for example in the implementation of an energy renovation action plan

By offering industrial actors a better control of the whole data path, Energisme contributes to the improvement of their energy efficiency.

Committing to the decarbonization of the industrial sector

The development of an energy management strategy is also part of the dynamic of energy and environmental transition. 

In the face of climate change, public authorities are imposing ambitious targets on industrial players in terms of reducing energy consumption. Companies are required to reduce (and therefore monitor) their CO2 consumption.

The decarbonization of industry requires several types of measures:

  • Improving energy efficiency
  • Integration of new energy sources into the energy mix
  • Implementation of new industrial processes
  • Development of CO2 capture

In all cases, precise monitoring of your carbon trajectory and energy consumption is required. The Energisme platform meets the needs of industrial companies in this area by allowing them to It allows to :

  • Collect and centralize massive and heterogeneous data 
  • Make the different data sources interoperable for an in-depth, multi-criteria analysis of your energy performance
  • Easily compare your actual trajectory with your greenhouse gas emission reduction objectives
  • React immediately in case of drift and remotely control the automats
Optimizing industrial processes with data

Smart Industry

In the era of Industry 4.0, data is also the starting point for industrial process optimization. 

Indeed, energy efficiency and decarbonization of industry are essential to achieve significant energy savings. 

Nevertheless, some industrial processes still require high energy consumption. This is particularly true for heavy industries that often require very high temperatures.

The use of a data intelligence solution such as the N’Gage platform allows companies in the industrial sector to :

  • Accurately measure the energy consumption of an industrial process
  • Make projections with different process optimization scenarios and evaluate their relevance 

In this case, the control of the data facilitates estimation of the environmental gains as well as the prospects of profitability of a process optimization. It is therefore a valuable decision-making tool.

What is smart industry?

Smart industry relies on digital transformation and new technologies to optimize production models in the industrial sector.

It responds to a double challenge:

  • Optimize the energy performance of industrial companies in a more global perspective of reducing energy consumption
  • To improve the profitability and competitiveness of industrial players by engaging in the energy transition and through the optimization of production processes

The participation of the industrial sector in the energy transition is a regulatory obligation. International agreements on climate change and the objectives of reducing energy consumption set by the public authorities are binding on the players. But the transformation of the sector is also driven by economic reasons. It is a question of getting ahead of its international competitors in areas of competitiveness that will be essential in the future.

To achieve this, industrial companies are implementing a new model for organizing their production resources, in which equipment is networked and linked to a central platform. In this interconnected information system, data occupies a central place.

NGage, the data intelligence platform developed by Energisme, helps industrial companies to exploit the opportunities of Big Data. The solution fluidifies :

  • Data collection via smart metering and the Internet of Things
  • Centralization and analysis of collected data through algorithms
  • Internal use of the data through specific business applications

Why are we talking about Industry 4.0?

The data-driven smart industry is also called industry 4.0 because it corresponds to the 4th industrial revolution. In the history of the industrial sector, it constitutes a new paradigm after the :

  • 1st industrial revolution, at the end of the 18th century, marked by the mechanization of processes and steam energy
  • 2nd industrial revolution, from 1870, with the beginning of mass production, assembly line work and electricity as the main source of energy
  • 3rd industrial revolution, started at the end of the 60’s with the automation of processes, computers and electronics

The 4th industrial revolution

The 4th industrial revolution is based on cyber-physical systems (CPS), the Internet of Things and the networking of equipment. Like the other revolutions, it is characterized by a radical reorganization of the means of production. And, like the first two industrial revolutions, Industry 4.0 is also accompanied by the adoption of new energy sources.

In concrete terms, the interconnection of equipment and the centralization of data in a software platform like the Energisme solution help industrial companies to:
