Smart energy - technologies, services, regulations

Manufacturers are now facing a transition to Industry 4.0 facilities, forcing them to introduce more sustainable, efficient and innovative production lines. The manufacturing industry needs to reduce carbon emissions and is transitioning from fossil fuels to low-carbon alternatives. As energy is an integral part of everything we do, the implementation of industrial processes with increased energy efficiency will lay the foundations for an industrial energy transformation.
