Dynamic optimisation for energy efficiency of injection moulding process
Yin, Kam Hoe (2015) Dynamic optimisation for energy efficiency of injection moulding process. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Low carbon economy has emerged as an important task in China since the energy intensity and carbon intensity reduction targets were clearly prescribed in its recent Twelfth Five-Year Plan during 2011-2015. While the largest enterprises have undertaken initial initiative to reduce their energy consumption, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) will need to share the responsibilities in meeting the nation’s targets. However, there is no established structure for helping SMEs to reduce their efficiency gap and hence the implementation of energy-saving measures in SMEs still remains patchy. Addressing this issue, this thesis seeks to understand the critical barriers faced by SMEs and aims to develop proprietary methodologies that can facilitate manufacturing SMEs to close their efficiency gap.
