Energy management in manufacturing companies, particularly in small to medium enterprises (SMEs), remains undeveloped due to competing priorities and a lack of specialist knowledge. The application of well established and low-cost energy conservation measures could cut a Companies energy costs by 20%. These savings can be achieved through leade rship from management, changes in behaviour and low-cost monitoring and tar geting measures.
