The increasing reliance on volatile renewable energy sources in the European Union raises questions regarding the future mechanisms of the energy markets. Energy-intensive production industries are particularly expected to take a more active role by shaping their energy demand according to the availability of wind and sun. Hence, they will need to align their production processes with external energy market signals. This paper presents an application example for a Siemens Plant Simulation extension that makes holistic material flow and energy flow studies of factories possible. The so-called eniBRIC class library provides functionalities for investigating the flow of energy between infrastructure and production equipment. Since its latest update, it can also be used to model renewable energy sources as well as energy storages. A case study of the E³-Research Factory showcases the features of eniBRIC and provides an outlook on future research in the field of energy-flexible production.
