Energy management

The most reliable way to reduce operating costs and improve profitability in a volatile market

“Using rigorous benchmarking technology gave a National Oil Company customer confidence that all possible gap closing opportunities had been identified. Savings totaled €8 million and more than 80 energy performance indicators were identified to help the customer sustain benefit over the long-term."


Allan Rudman, Vice President Energy Services, KBC

Are your energy systems restricting your production and profitability in today’s volatile market?

KBC offers industry experts, superior technology, proprietary methodologies and operational excellence to help you optimize and sustain your asset’s performance.

Our software tools show you how to optimize the design, revamp and operation of energy systems, ensuring optimum efficiency. Make confident utility configuration decisions, identify opportunities, size equipment, plan for potential future scenarios and speed up performance management with online monitoring.


The most reliable way to reduce your operating costs

Saving energy is the most reliable way to reduce operating costs and improve profitability in a volatile market – it always saves money. With our sophisticated simulation and real-time optimization software, you will typically be able to save between 10-15% on energy costs and carbon emissions. This will help you improve energy efficiency, maximize return on investment, reduce operating costs and minimize risks associated with stricter governmental and environmental legislation. In addition, you will increase production by 2-3% by eliminating process constraints governed by energy and utility systems.

We optimize the energy balance on both the demand and the supply side. Use our Visual MESA Energy Management system for energy and emissions planning, monitoring and real-time optimization. Use Petro-SIM for the design and engineering of utility systems.
