Energy efficiency into industrial facility

How is possible to increase efficiency into industrial facility? Do new energy generation systems (hardware) are necessary? Do machine learning and artificial intelligence could improve performance?

During my Ph.D. I analysed both efficiency energy conversion system based on SOFC/RSOC to produce energy both to improce polygeneration system using data analytics and machine learning. Clustering is proposed to define polygeneration system and to perform short-therm forecasting combined with kNN.

An innovative approach to design cogeneration systems based on big data analysis and use of clustering methods

How data on energy consumption could be used to improve efficiency on generation with polygeneration system?

In this paper presented at SDEWES Conference 2019 an innovative method based on clustering analysis is proposed to perform data analytics and define poligeneration system. Dataset of a case study show that energy saving could be achieved.
