Energy management in the industrial context is an important factor to attain energy savings as well as environmental efficiency. In fact, if every single factory could achieve some even relatively small improvements, considerable progress in a countrywide dimension would be made. The purpose of this paper is to show how energy management can be introduced in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Even if, in general, only data about the system as a whole are available, it is enough to begin an analysis leading to the knowledge of the laws relating energy consumption (electricity and fuels) and energy drivers (production, weather, etc.). Statistical process control techniques are the tools that have been applied.
