In this article, we present a scientifically proven methodology for monitoring and controlling of industrial energy efficiency in consumer power systems (CPS) – an original method of finite relations (MFR), which uses relative energy intensity resulting from energy use in the technology of the enterprise as the main indicator of innovative energy efficiency. The differentiation algorithm and control of energy consumption are based on the effectiveness of energy use in power technology processes which ensure delivery of technologically expected results. The main provisions of the method are confirmed by experiments and tested under production conditions. The research results correspond to the basic principles of the global energy efficiency practices (integrated approach to the design and the principle of sustainable development), but yielded a number of more specific solutions.
