Within the manufacturing industry, energy remains a significant point of focus. From the production side, with the manufacture of energy technologies, and particularly decarbonised or clean energy technologies. From the operational side, with energy productivity and the implementation of energy efficient measures during the production process. At present, both the energy sector and the manufacturing sector may be considered as dependent on the other. With increasing concerns around the supply of energy across Europe as a result of geopolitical instability in the region, manufacturers across might be wondering just how they can ensure operational continuity should energy supply be cut-off. Couple this concern with increasing pressure to move towards renewable energy and sustainable means of production, and manufacturers are faced with even greater pressure to switch to a different form of energy.
