ODVA publishes paper with tips on how industrial users can control energy consumption from the plant floor to the grid.

Industrial automation group ODVA provides energy-efficiency advice to manufacturers in a new white paper called "Optimization of Energy Usage."

The paper is designed to help sustainability executives at manufacturing firms and product managers at device vendors map out their product roadmaps to support sustainability objectives and business goals.

ODVA’s plan for energy efficiency leverages the core competency of its information and communication technologies, which are grounded in its media independent network protocol – the Common Industrial Protocol, according to ODVA.

For energy optimization between processes and other systems in industrial production, ODVA includes energy-oriented objects and services within the Common Industrial Protocol that permit the transparent and seamless flow of energy information and enable systems to perform energy metering and management.
