Industrial energy efficiency is widely acknowledged as an important and effective way to mitigate industrial greenhouse gas emissions. However, so far, implementation rates of energy efficiency measures are disappointing. Industry 4.0 has been described as a way to increase energy efficiency and, therefore, barriers to energy efficiency. Here, we share the concept of a digital service providing assistance for investments in the replacement of energy consuming physical assets (Hardware) by continuously calculation the life cycle costs of the underlying assets and more energy efficient replacement versions (Upgrade). We present the specification for this digital after-sales service and a basic implementation in the context of a use case applied in the context of a compressed air demonstrator.
