About the book
The fundamental reasons behind the present day's energy crisis in most parts of the world are insufficient growth in exploration of energy sources, a ﬂawed estimate of the mounting energy demand, and energy losses during transmission and consumption. Process industries have a substantial share in energy consumption and equally high energy saving potentials if they adopt some integrated Energy Management System (EnMS). The EnMS in process industries across the globe is mostly based on manual calculation or methods which are not fully robust and integrated. Hence, a substantial amount of energy is lost which causes damage to the economy, wastage of national resources, and adversely affects the environment. With the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), in the developed economies, the EnMS is entering into the phase of automation in the paradigm shift from Industry 3.0 to 4.0.
This book encompasses the historical evaluation of EnMS, barriers, and drivers to EnMS, sector-wise and region-wise analysis of EnMS, and prospects and challenges to EnMS in the era of the fourth industrial revolution in process industries. The outcome of the study will be helpful to the decision-maker in the industry as well as the government levels.
