Abstract

Global trends indicate that energy consumption in manufacturing automation is an important aspect to support next generation of sustainable eco-factories. Some manufacturing processes consume large amounts of energy to fully be automated. Researchers have been emphasizing the significant challenge energy generation will be in coming years to fulfill demand. Therefore, there is a need to explore new ways of reducing manufacturing automation energy consumption. This paper focuses on research concerned with energy consumption in a fully integrated manufacturing automation, and argues that the understanding of different approaches to explore novel tools for sustainable manufacturing is important to support eco-factories.
