Smart use of data saves energy 

A software application helps the Energy Management Team and the offshore process control operators save energy at the Edvard Grieg platform by linking real-time production data with energy consumption information.

Instead of measuring energy consumption, the application uses algorithms and data models to calculate energy loss for every individual component at the process facility. Utilising this tool helps ensure optimal operations, while saving a considerable amount of energy. 

For 2022, the energy saved totalled around 4.2 GWh which equals the annual energy consumption of approximately 260 households. 

The application was developed in a cooperative effort between Aker BP and Honeywell. It runs on the existing software and hardware infrastructure, so no extra investments were necessary.
