Due to an increasing energy price and progressively emphasized environmental politics, an energy-efficient production has obtained significant attention in the past years. Intensive research has been conducted on the two main energy consumers in production environment: production activities and building facilities. Some approaches even consider combining two systems together for a further energetic potential. However, most researches remain in theoretical levels. Industrial implementations do not follow the research results. This paper reviews the theoretical development of energy-efficiency measures for both systems and takes a close insight of the integrated energy saving researches. Afterwards a concept to integrate an energy-control loop into a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is p resented. In addition, a second concept develops an energy-efficient building automation connected with a MES. They provide industry practicable solutions with manageable adaption costs. Ultimately, this paper outlines a novel solution approach to combine MES and building automation together in order to reach an overall-optimized energy consumption.
