The final details have just fallen into place for project AVES (Analysis and Visualization for Energy Savings).

The two-year project will be conducted in cooperation with Aalborg University’s Department of Energy Technology and Systemize ApS, a company focused energy optimization consultancy.

AVES addresses the challenge that industrial production sites often lack the data registration that forms the basis for finding and realizing energy savings. AVES aims at developing a standardized market offering of a retrofitted sensor kit with supporting software that will give businesses actionable insights, such as:

  • how to save energy in production lines
  • predictive maintenance
  • correlation between machine efficiency and energy waste

The goal is to optimize energy consumption per unit manufactured on a given production line. A major feature of the project will be a pilot deployment in close collaboration with a company to be chosen during the project duration.

The financing of AVES is the ETI project, offered by the energy cluster CLEAN. ETI stands for “Energy Technology Innovation” and is dedicated to helping small and medium-sized companies to develop energy-optimization solutions and products. The funding has its origin from the European Union’s Regional Development Fund administered by the Danish Business Authority (Erhvervsstyrelsen) in collaboration with CLEAN. Further information about the funding framework can be found at CLEAN's website and Dansh Business Authority's website.
