Low-carbon strategy

Bringing together heterogeneous manufacturing sites

Organic growth, sector independence, cultural differences, multi-country activities; many factors favour the energy heterogeneity of the industrial sites within a group.

We see a phenomenon of centralisation in decision-making at group level, and it would be interesting to integrate the low-carbon strategy into a management’s industrial vision, while bringing together the site teams around this final objective.

In response to this challenge, we proceed in two stages – defining the ideal factory and then implementing a master plan.

Carbon neutrality thanks to the “ideal factory”

We have created a model that allows any factory to be modelled virtually, with consumer blocks and energy vectors. Our (big data) approach, and the multitude of sites monitored, allows us to use this virtual factory to define the ideal factory.

The diagnosis is not made through expensive and time-consuming audits. The aim is to work by implementing intelligent software that allows this step to be automated.

In 75% of cases, the software can be implemented by the site itself without an external integrator.

Our software technology makes process typing, modelling and optimisation possible. The manufacturers and our teams can then work with these different models to find all the possible improvements.

At the same time, we constantly integrate the results of our technology intelligence into the modelling.

Deliverable: specifications of the ideal factory

The ideal factory deliverable is a report that defines the best technology for each activity, taking into account the requirements, constraints, segmentation size and factory block plan,

Every factory in the world can digitally input its constraints and then determine the best technology for each process and energy use.

Virtualised, the ideal factory is integrated into the software to allow all sites to be compared to it. The specifications for each factory block can be downloaded from the platform.

Low carbon master plan

We compare all the factories in the group with the previously defined ideal ones. We identify all the projects that would allow each plant to converge towards these ideal plants: a project is defined by a summary description, an investment budget, and its environmental issues (energy savings, financial savings, and CO²).

1. ENERGY TRANSITION INVESTMENT ENVELOPE

The manufacturer defines an investment budget for the energy transition. We then prioritise the projects to meet annual budgets and define environmental performance targets. The master plan is implemented at group level, factory by factory, and year by year.

2. ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVE

The manufacturer defines their environmental performance target year by year, throughout the master plan. We then prioritise the actions to be implemented – factory by factory, and year by year – in order to achieve these objectives. The plan incorporates the annual investment budget needed to meet these targets.

Deliverable: Low carbon project planning

The master plan deliverable is a report that formalises project planning, investment, and environmental performance targets – year by year, site by site, and at group level.
