Energy Related Key Performance Indicators–State of the Art, Gaps and Industrial Needs
Paper in proceeding, 2013

Better monitoring and control of energy consumption and effective use of performance indicators are of utmost important for achieving improved energy efficiency performance in manufacturing for current and future enterprises. This paper aims at analyzing the current state of the art on energy related production performance indicators to derive research gaps and industrial needs in the area. The research has been conducted as preliminary step before a comprehensive effort in which the authors suggest a new methodology to develop energy related key performance indicators. Therefore, the study resulted in a clearer understanding and synthesis of the research field, gaps in scientific literature and industrial needs, hence guiding further research.
