Abstract

This work analyzes possible measures of energy saving in a production company, with the purpose of establishing recommendations that contribute to the efficient use of energy. This research is descriptive-documentary, based on a fieldwork, where the different production processes and industrial services were analyzed. Using data supplied from working hours, an estimate of monthly consumption was made to determine the impact of processes on electricity billing ; The analysis was restricted to the calculation of consumption index (Ton / kWh), which allows the use of the most efficient equipment to be prioritized over others performing the same functions. The analysis of the consumption characteristic yields optimum consumption points which allow to establish a graph of Energy vs Production called Goal. The result is that by applying all the proposed actions, the monthly consumption would decrease by 138,024.84 kWh, representing an energy saving of around 25\% with respect to the current average consumption.
