EUI1: Proxy Metering of Energy Vectors in Industrial Manufacturing Sites

In a manufacturing environment, decisions on what renewable energy integration strategy to adopt or how to manage energy intensive systems are often not straightforward due to a lack of contextualised data coupled to the manufacturing system. The use of proxy metering (i.e. inferred rather than measured consumption) has the potential to complement existing data on energy and resource consumption. Workpackage End Use Integration 1 will improve the transparency of information across the full energy and resource chain in manufacturing sites. In addition, it will explore opportunities for demand management within the factory environment and will examine the impact on the national grid of demand management decisions within the factory.
