The European Commission, DG XI, has published an invitation to tender concerning a study on energy management and its potential optimization in industrial sectors. The aim of this study is to establish a direct relationship between energy efficiency and the environmental impact of industrial installations through substance emissions, including the calorific discharges of fluids at non-ambient temperatures in the environment. The study should also investigate means of production, consumption and recovery of energy, including the recuperation of energy from secondary sources, such as the use of substitute fuels allowing the recovery of the calorific energy of certain substances considered as waste. This would also involve the identification of the processes and practices that are most efficient in terms of energy and the environment, including a cost-effective analysis of these processes and practices. In addition, the study will provide a numerical estimate of the possible reductions of industrial emissions in the EU and associated costs.
