What is Energy Use?

Energy use describes the amount and type of energy required by an organization to provide goods and services. With advanced digital tools and processes, efficient resource management and new (or existing) infrastructure optimization, organizations can make strategic decisions to alter their patterns of energy use and reduce their carbon footprint.

What Does It Mean for Your Business?

Reducing your energy use footprint doesn’t just mean smaller energy bills. Reducing your carbon footprint helps you stay ahead of regulatory requirements, and create a more resilient business that respects the environment. This not only appeals to today’s sustainability-conscious consumers but lays the groundwork for a meaningful zero carbon transition.

The Challenges of Changing Energy Use

Realizing effective low-carbon energy operations for your business can be a challenge. Firstly, it requires you to effectively measure and manage the different forms of energy you are currently using. Then, it means finding a way of changing existing operations for a more efficient use of energy from greener sources, alongside integrating new technologies and processes to modernize old infrastructures and implement new ones.

Iter > Dassault Systèmes®
Founded by seven member states, the ITER project brings together 35 nations to build the world’s largest fusion device, and demonstrate the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion power as a large scale energy source. ITER adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to manage the plant's entire lifecycle and gain a single source of truth for every stage of the project.
Nio Dassault Systèmes®
Electric vehicle innovator NIO needed to rollout an R&D platform to support its rapid global expansion. The company chose the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its Electro Mobility Accelerator industry solution to bring together different disciplines in its development and manufacturing teams.
Eviation Aircraft > Dassault Systèmes®
Eviation Aircraft
Eviation Aircraft wanted to design and build an all electric airplane for mid-range distances that is cost-effective and environmentally friendly on an aggressive time schedule by using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud.
Evolectric - Dassault Systèmes®
Evolectric deployed the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on Cloud enabling a comprehensive set of capabilities, from design to project management. The platform serves as a single reference to handle the full lifecycle of each electrification project, from concept stage to systems engineering and production.

Solutions for Sustainable Energy Use

Innovation is key for building a path to sustainability, and those looking to make the transition can take advantage of several options:

Electrification: Bringing more of your operations onto electrified power supplies means that operators can take advantage of green, renewable power sources.

Energy storage: Batteries, hydrogen and other forms of energy storage can allow for greater energy grid flexibility, further helping operators utilize electrification solutions.

Energy use: Identify systems where energy use reduction solutions can be retro-fitted and maintained long term while keeping costs under control.
