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.

About the editor

Iftikhar Ahmad

National University of Sciences and Technology

Dr. Iftikhar Ahmad Salarzai is expert in virtual sensing, uncertainty quantification, reliability analysis, and automation of process energy management systems (EnMS). He has got MS and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Kyoto University Japan. In a project with Kansai Electrical Safety and Inspection Association, Japan, he has developed an intelligent fault diagnosis system that can detect causes of the breakdown of electric supply lines and help the company to quickly restore the availability of electricity to customers. In another project with Japan’s largest steelmaking company Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal Corporation, Ltd. (NSSMC), he developed a gray-box model-based framework for temperature estimation and control of continuous casting process under uncertainty. Besides, he has successfully implemented his core research themes to other processes such as petroleum refinery, shale oil and gas processing, cement industry, coal gasification, and biofuel production units. Dr. Iftikhar has got outstanding research award from the Society of Chemical Engineers, Japan and ORIC Innovation Award from the University of Engineering & Technology, Peshawar, Pakistan. He has also got two NRPU grants from the Higher Education Commission (HEC) for the development of the prototype for an automated EnMS of a petroleum refinery.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
