An analysis of 19 Extended Energy Survey reports on the Brewing Industry in the United Kingdom over the period 1984-1989 has shown that there are considerable energy cost savings available from the implementation of cost effective energy efficiency measures. A breakdown of the savings achieved through various measures shows that almost a quarter of identified savings are in energy management with enhanced heat recovery, improved refrigeration and control measures also being significant. Overall savings of more than Pound 4M were identified at the 19 sites. The introduction of energy monitoring and targetting at sites could greatly facilitate an improvement in efficient process energy use and could lead to an overall savings of Pound 2.5M across the industry.
