Welcome to ENIG
ENIG is a Swedish national energy efficiency network targeting SMEs which are active in the manufacturing sector. The main objective of ENIG is to create, collect and disseminate information to the Swedish manufacturing industry about technique, methods and practices concerning energy efficiency. ENIG offers support in many ways, covering the whole spectrum from a basic introduction in energy to more advanced information concerning energy efficiency and deeper knowledge about energy intensive industrial processes. This means that one can always use ENIG as a source of knowledge, guidance and support in order to reduce the energy use within the company.
Another strength within the network of ENIG is that we support a number of different industries, which makes it possible for cross-industry collaboration in areas of common interest for example ventilation, compressed air and lighting.
The organisations behind ENIG is Swerea SWECAST and Swerea IVF. The Swedish Energy Agency is a key partner and one of the financiers..

Energy Perfomance Indicators (EPI) -database
Would you like to compare your company's energy use to others or your company's improvements in energy efficiency?
What is the energy perfomance indicators?
Energy ratios is used to effectively be able to compare energy performance. For example, it is possible to compare annual energy use for the total number of production hours. The important is that the EPI is relevant to the business and possible to follow-up, to be able to describe the work with energy efficiency effectively.
Examples of EPI:s
• MWh / turnover
• MWh / employee
• MWh / m² •
MWh / manufactured goods, be etc.
• Annual number of MWh / annual number of production hours primary energy consumption / value added

Open ENIGs Energy Management Light (Currently only in swedish)
Within the framework of the Swedish national energy efficiency network ENIG, a simplified web-based Energy Management tool has been developed named Energy Management Light. The tool has been developed with consideration given to the requirements of SMEs in the manufacturing industry, something which has been thoroughly evaluated in conjunction with the input of the SMEs.
In the current situation, the tool is only available in Swedish. However, there are plans to make the tool available in multiple languages, through applied EU-projects.
Unique selling points:
- Free registration and use
- Room for self studies
- Simplified and adapted for SMEs
