Press release
Resource scarcity, increasing energy costs, global warming – these issues do not only concern businesses with high energy consumption. In addition to economic reasons also increasingly stringent legal requirements force companies to increase their energy efficiency. However, measures to increase energy efficiency are often in conflict with other targets of the factory planning, in particular the efficiency of the material flow. The aim of this research project is the derivation of recommendations for energy and material flow efficient structuring and synergetic design of factories.

Publications about the project

The lecture introduced IPH – Institut für Integrierte Produktion Hannover gGmbH with its three fields of activity: forming technology, logistics and automation technology. Furthermore, research and consulting projects were discussed. In addition, the challenges regarding the planing of adaptable factories were presented as a major focus of current research.

In 2022 germanys last nuclear power plants will be shut down. In addition to the decision to phase out nuclear power a worldwide shortage of fossil fuels will lead to a steady rise in energy costs. Therefore the IPH develops procedures and methods, which will help companies to reduce their energy costs.
