Event Details

As we all know, the cost of energy has skyrocketed in recent months, and manufacturers particularly are seeing these increased costs eating away at profit margins.

Would you like to know when, where and how you are using the most energy in your business? Do you see unexplained ‘phantom’ energy use when machines are off, or your factory is closed?

The Smart Manufacturing Data Hub is hosting an online workshop which will explain how to collect and use your energy data to monitor usage. Our partners from the Energy Systems Catapult will give you easy-to-use tools to get useful insight and practical tips on cutting energy consumption, without impacting productivity.

The University of Cambridge will showcase the power monitoring solution available to SME manufacturers through SMDH, which can capture energy usage data for individual machines, processes, or rooms.

We will also show you examples of how to use your energy data to make business decisions, reduce energy spend and improve sustainability.


09:30 Welcome

09:35 Why should you collect and analyse your energy data? How to get started.

09:45 Kill-a-Watt: Identifying your ‘Phantom Load’ and what to do about it.

09:55 How to collect half-hourly energy meter data and how to get a half-hourly meter if you don’t have one.

10:05 Monitoring power consumption at machine level – power monitoring solution

10:15 Support and funding available from Smart Manufacturing Data Hub and how to access it.

10:25 Q&A
