This paper reports the work under development in the scope of LifeSaver project aiming at supporting manufacturing companies in optimising the energy performance of their operations. This support will be in the form of a set of ICT building blocks that combine context awareness, ambient intelligence monitoring and standard energy consumption data measurement. LifeSaver will provide: (i) information about the energy consumption to be processed in enterprise management systems, for the purpose of achieving significant energy savings; (ii) a decision support system for optimisation of energy performance of operations; and (iii) predicted cumulative data on the CO2 emissions, as input for the decision support services to enable emission trading across industries and among companies. Three demonstrators of the platform’s application in real industrial environment, and their usage for new business models, will be provided.
