Reduce costs, carbon footprints & energy consumption
Deploying energy tracking solutions brings numerous benefits to manufacturing business. It allows for real-time monitoring of energy usage, enabling us to reduce our carbon footprint by powering off idle machines and fostering sustainability. Moreover, it ensures complete traceability throughout the process, enabling us to track energy consumption across sites, departments, production lines, and individual machines.
Energy tracking systems - improved manufacturing efficiency
Harford energy tracking solutions improve energy usage effectiveness by accurately tracking various forms of energy, including gas, air, water, and electricity. What makes Harford energy tracking solutions different is that they measure energy usage at multiple levels, from site to specific areas like departments and machines. By capturing energy usage from machines, they identify opportunities for energy savings and optimise consumption by powering off unnecessary equipment. Seamless integration with existing machinery enables smooth data extraction and integration, enhancing overall manufacturing efficiency and sustainability practices.
Enhancing sustainability, manufacturing quality & compliance
Leverage sustainable manufacturing practises to improve factory quality compliance, operational efficiency, and cost savings. Through monitoring energy usage and identifying areas of high energy consumption, manufacturers can implement targeted measures to reduce their carbon footprint and environmental impact. It is not only important for solving climate problems but also imperative to make each factory more competitive.
Energy Tracking solutions for key industries
Energy tracking solutions are essential across various industries where energy consumption is significant. By implementing energy tracking solutions, manufacturers can optimise energy usage, improve operational efficiency, and drive cost savings. From food and beverage, health and beauty, pharmaceutical to chemical manufacturers, energy tracking helps industries meet sustainability targets, comply with regulations, and enhance their competitive advantage by operating in an environmentally responsible manner.
Real-time reporting & insights
Instant, prioritised information, giving you end of end visibility of your production processes, will help you to improve performance and become more sustainable.
You can’t improve what you don’t measure and you can’t improve what you don’t see (real time visibility). Change should begin with a ‘root and branch’ evaluation, coupled with real-time visibility of actual performance. In this way, energy wastage, non-conformances, overfills, poor efficiencies and other forms of wastage quickly become obvious and actionable before defective products reach the retailer and become even more costly through batch rejections.

Who we have helped
What is energy tracking?
Energy tracking refers to the process of monitoring and measuring energy consumption in a manufacturing facility. It involves collecting data on energy usage, identifying areas of high consumption, and analysing energy patterns to optimize efficiency and reduce waste.
Why is energy tracking important for manufacturing?
Energy tracking is important for manufacturing because it helps identify energy-intensive processes, equipment, or areas where energy efficiency improvements can be made. By tracking energy consumption, manufacturers can identify opportunities to reduce energy waste, lower operating costs, and improve sustainability.
How can energy tracking benefit manufacturing companies?
Energy tracking offers several benefits for manufacturing companies. It allows for better energy management, cost savings through energy efficiency improvements, identification of potential equipment or process inefficiencies, compliance with energy regulations, and improved sustainability performance.
How can real-time energy tracking help manufacturers?
Real-time energy tracking provides manufacturers with up-to-date information on energy consumption, allowing them to identify sudden spikes or anomalies that may indicate inefficiencies or issues. It enables timely intervention, immediate feedback, and the ability to make data-driven decisions for optimizing energy usage and improving overall energy efficiency.
Can energy tracking help reduce energy costs?
Yes, energy tracking can help reduce energy costs. By monitoring and analysing energy consumption patterns, manufacturers can identify areas of high energy usage and implement energy-saving measures. This may include optimizing equipment settings, upgrading to more energy-efficient technologies, implementing energy management practices, and raising awareness among employees about energy conservation.
