Manufacturing is one of the largest energy-consuming sectors globally. Whether its production related, heating, cooling, cleaning or other ancillary processes, significant quantities of energy are required to keep a manufacturing firm operating.
Any rise in the price of energy makes manufacturing more costly, directly impacting short and long term sustainability and profitability. As the cost of electricity and gas continues to increase, this puts severe pressure on organisations in the manufacturing sector to assess their business efficiency and formulate plans to save energy.
The food and beverage industry is feeling this strain in particular, with major retailers demanding constantly better pricing, leaving manufacturers finding it an imperative to isolate cost savings within their operations.
