Abstract [en]

From an environmental point of view, reduced use of energy remains a cornerstone in global greenhouse gas mitigation. From a company point of view, greenhouse gas mitigation as such, may not yet, without full internalization of external costs, be the top priority among business leaders. Rather, it is the magnitude of production costs and the size of market revenue that articulates success or failure for business leaders. However, even for companies with low energy costs, reduced energy use or improved energy efficiency, can have a vast impact on profitability, as the reduced energy costs directly leads to increased profits. Naturally, this holds even more so for energy-intensive companies with high shares of energy costs and those companies have also often worked more extensively with improved energy efficiency. In this paper, a review of more than 10 years of empirical research in the field of industrial energy management is presented, followed by a short overview of important energy management tools. Results show that even for energy-intensive companies, energy management for most companies still has a large potential, calling for business leaders to take action, and for future policies to be designed to close this energy management gap.
