Nowadays the notable industrial manufactures are working in a global environment, which causes the enhancement of the competition in the market sector. To survive this taut situation, to increase the profit, and to gain a successful operation, we should enhance the efficiency and at the same time, reduce the cost of production. The producing industry, which consumes a huge amount of energy (e.g. chemical industry), spends the biggest part of the costs for energy. Since the energy prices are steeply running higher and the era of cheap oil, gas and electricity is over, energy management has been emphasized within the firms in the last few years.

The primary objective of the energy management is to diminish the consumption. To reach this goal, there are a number of possibilities, but for the exploration of energetic „weak links”, and the evaluation of the already-reached results a big role of the energetic measuring tools, and measuring systems is needed. In a company’s point of view an extensive and valuable result is only achievable by an integrated measuring system, which includes all used types of energy. This system is able to give exact information of the energy consumption by collecting local measurements in the particular fields’, plants’ and components’ energy consumption; to reveal the lavishing area, to attain the quick and transparent energy account within the company.

The aim of this Master Thesis is to sum up the required measuring and energetic theoretical background needed for the development of this integrated measuring system, to give an introduction of the measuring possibilities for each energy sources, and last, but not least, to give an overview of the segmental information system, which allows centralized processing . After the theoretical basics a Systemplan (provides a feasible solution), and based on that, a software specification have been worked up, as well as the implementation of the whole system and the execution in practice have been shown.
