What is ECOFACT?

The energy performance of industrial production systems presents a significant challenge for the manufacturing sector. The EU-funded ECOFACT project aims to support manufacturing industries in optimizing the energy performance of their production systems with regard to restrictions such as time and resources. The project will introduce an innovative green marketing method based on the concept of energy and the environmental signature of the products.

Moreover, it will apply a data-driven method exploiting advanced ICT technologies to better adapt to consumer demands through customized sustainable production. Finally, it will establish a high-level platform in a multi-service approach, delivering an innovative integrated combination of functionalities for advanced energy-efficient, sustainable processes, and manufacturing management. The timeline of the ECOFACT project 958373 is Oct 2020-Sep 2024.

  • Shaping the Future: ECOFACT’s Engagement with CEN-CLC/JTC 14 

    In a virtual setting on November 28th, 2023, ECOFACT, represented by Francisco Morentin, from CARTIF, and Marta Fernández, from UNE, took a role in the plenary meeting of the European CEN and CENELEC Joint Technical Committee 14 (CEN-CLC/JTC 14). This meeting, centred around the progress on the standardization work programme on “Energy management and energy efficiency in the framework of energy transition”, provided a crucial platform for ECOFACT to articulate its objectives and unveil plans for pre-normative development. 

    Objective and Purpose 

    The primary objective of participating in this plenary meeting was to present the goals and aspirations of ECOFACT to the esteemed members of CEN-CLC/JTC 14. Francisco and Marta shared a comprehensive overview of the project, with a particular focus on activities within Work Package 7 (WP7) related to standardisation. A key announcement added to the significance of the occasion – the unveiling of plans for a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) titled “Requirements for an Energy Management and Sustainable Manufacturing Project.” 

    By actively participating in this plenary meeting, ECOFACT reinforces its commitment to transparency, collaboration, and the dissemination of knowledge. Presenting the project overview and outlining standardisation activities not only enriches the understanding of CEN-CLC/JTC 14 but also opens avenues for potential synergies between European funds and standardisation initiatives. 

    Outcomes and Future Steps 

    The meeting concluded with the commitment to keeping CEN-CLC/JTC 14 informed about ECOFACT’s progress. This fosters a collaborative approach to achieving shared goals in the realm of energy management and efficiency. 

    As ECOFACT continues to make strides in shaping sustainable practices, this engagement becomes a cornerstone in our journey. Stay tuned for more updates on how ECOFACT navigates the path towards a future marked by energy efficiency and sustainable manufacturing.
