EconiQTM Consulting supports customers addressing their unique environmental performance needs.  It provides deep insights to guide our customer’s sustainability-related initiatives and improves their overall carbon footprint.

EconiQ Consulting is working along four pillars backed by life cycle assessments.

Defining Strategy to achieve Sustainability

Our aim is to define strategies together with our customers and to help them implement the identified actions through consulting services that will help them reach their environmental, operational and financial sustainability goals. The pillars to deliver innovation and growth that safeguards our planet and drives the decarbonization journey are:

To ensure continuity in production and revenue streams, the transition to CO2 free/reduced operation must be done while keeping same or higher availability of the production sites. One key factor is stability and availability of the power system that provides energy to the production process.

 

Applications

Consulting service areas

  • Redundancy
  • Disturbance resilience
  • Resilience to external disturbances in power grid
  • Reactive power compensation
  • Power quality
  • Protection and selectivity
  • Micro grids and battery energy storage

High predictability is one of the key factors in all production operations. By being able to predict maintenance and other sources of production interruptions, it is possible to increase operations efficiency in terms of profitability and environmental impact. 

 

Applications

Consulting service areas

  • Digitalization
  • Asset management and maintenance
  • Data driven predictive maintenance
  • Digital network models and scenario analysis
  • AI driven analysis of PQ measurements

Energy productivity, defined as the measure of benefit one receives for each unit of energy,  is a central area of improvement in the path to reducing the environmental impact. Increased energy productivity will automatically lead to reduction of emissions for same amount of good produced.

 

Applications

Consulting service areas

  • Energy efficiency
  • Process efficiency
  • Energy efficiency audits
  • AC – DC grid implementation
  • Evaluation of higher voltage levels
  • Power peak shaving
  • Load shifting 

Environmental sustainability is a combination of using CO2 free energy sources, materials with low CO2 footprint, and electrification of all the operations and all the processes (which includes production as well as transports of goods and people.)

 

Applications

Consulting service areas

  • Electrification
  • Renewable energy sources
  • Electrification of transports and processes
  • Life cycle assessments
  • Integration of renewable energy sources in combination with energy storage and hydrogen production

Strategic partner for green transition

Hitachi Energy Power Consulting offers a full spectrum of services, from planning to operation, helping our customers on their path to reaching their goals of operational and environmental sustainability. 

EconiQ Consulting backed by Life Cycle Assessments (LCA)

About Life Cycle Assessments:
 

  • Is a method to quantify the environmental impact, e.g. in tonnes CO2 equivalents (Global Warming Potential) of a service, a product or a system
  • Includes the whole life cycle – from extraction of materials, manufacturing, use or operation to end of life
  • Shows what phase and materials that have the highest environmental impact
  • Is the base for improvements, comparisons

Methodology

Definition

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a holistic and science-based process that quantifies the environmental impact i.e., in tonnes CO2 equivalents of a product or a system - throughout its life cycle from raw material acquisition through production, use and disposal.

Standards

​In the past few decades, manufacturers and consumers have recognized the impacts of their processes, products and actions. Therefore, relevant safety and environmental standards have been developed.
●  ISO 14001 - Environmental management
●  ISO 14040/14044 - Life cycle assessment
●  Environmental Product Declaration
●  ISO 50001 - Energy management systems 

Methodology

​Based on those standards, an LCA identifies, quantifies and assesses sources of environmental impact throughout a product's life cycle.  An LCA helps prioritize how to make improvements on our environmental footprint.
●  System definition
●  Data collection
●  Modelling & interpretation
●  Discussion & report
