Industrial energy consumption is responsible of about one third of global energy consumption. For this reason, increasing attention about energy efficiency and environmental problems leads scientific researchers to undertake several studies to improve energy efficiency both in industrial and other sectors. Compressed air is surely one of the most influencing system regarding energy consumption. On average, 10% of industrial energy consumption is due to compressed air system, consequently research has focused on technologies for reducing this consumption. Exploiting the lack of complete procedures to prove compressed air system performance and reduce energy costs, a complex strategy is presented and discussed in this thesis. The developed methodology
starts from the analysis of a large database coming from Italian industrial companies containing energy consumption of the most energyintensive sectors and through the development of benchmark analysis and successive surveys (also applying a specific maturity model), proposes and implements some decision support tools to evaluate and improve compressed air system energy efficiency. Results show that all the developed methodologies can be applied on all industrial company highlighting possible improvements.
