The industry sector is responsible for around 20% of Switzerland’s total energy consumption. According to the SFOE, there is an energy saving potential of 20-40% among the several thousand companies within the Swiss industry sector. Despite this fact many companies are not aware of the potential for energy savings in their process, resulting in energy efficiency measures, which are in fact economically viable, not being implemented. Therefore, the innovation challenges with respect to “Monitoring and Implementation” are to provide systematic data on energy utilization and management from ongoing and finalized projects and to develop targeted tools and databases to assess the technical, economic and market potential for energy conservation. A further innovation challenge is to develop, evaluate and disseminate strategies aimed at an accelerated and broad diffusion of energy efficiency solutions in the industry. This will include assessments and recommendations regarding business models and an analysis of changes in the boundary conditions needed for substantially improved industrial energy efficiency.
