The international ISO 50001 standard puts forth ambitious goals to reduce CO2 emissions and increase the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources. Energy-intensive manufacturing industries, such as forging, can reduce electricity costs and improve their competitive position through ISO 50001 certification.
The ISO 50001 international standard for energy performance was introduced in part 1 of this article. In this concluding installment, the individual stages of an induction heating line are examined for individual energy efficiencies. An actual energy audit is also summarized.
