Abstract

This chapter proposes a decision support approach for energy savings and emissions trading based on the requirements collected through a set of industrial users. These requirements served as guideline for identification of needs that should be addressed with respect to the decision support approach, constituting a fundamental step for future platform development. The decision support approach proposes two different perspectives: support for immediate reaction (based on the paradigm of intelligent decision support implemented through the use of Case-based Reasoning together with probabilistic analysis); and support for process reconfiguration and Emission Trading System (ETS) (implemented through the use of multi-criteria decision analysis using MACBETH). The chapter illustrates a categorization approach using main criteria involved in the process and associated algorithms. Moreover the approaches proposed were successfully tested in industrial environment and the results obtained are here presented.
