Industrial Big Data and Energy Management have become major strategic topics in manufacturing as they offer possibilities to realize untapped cost and emission saving potentials. The paper discusses the utilization of equipment internal energy-relevant data as part of the Industrial Big Data developments taking place in manufacturing to create energy transparency according to ISO 50001. A classification framework to estimate the required effort of ascertaining information on energy consumption of production equipment is described and the synergy effects with Industrial Big Data related to data acquisition, extraction and infrastructure are discussed. Furthermore, a case study provides insights about the achievable energy transparency in an automotive body shop.
