Energy Efficiency in industry is a hot topic but companies are not still implementing, on a mass scale, energy efficiency actions. One of the most important barriers is that companies are scarcely aware of their consumptions and consider energy as a fixed cost and not as a resource to be managed. The authors of this paper have faced this problem through three projects funded by European Commission (ARTISAN, SESEC and SET), defining a methodology based on a self-analysis of consumptions, collection of data for improving benchmarks and suggestion of customised Best Practices list.
