Rising energy prices are an increasing financial burden for manufacturing companies. In addition to established logistical and cost-oriented targets such as short throughput times and low stock levels, energy costs assume an increasingly important role. Energy costs can be included as a further planning variable in production. The aim is to lower costs either directly by reducing consumption or to use price mechanisms to exert an influence, for example peak shaving. Methods and procedures for energy-oriented production planning and control have been studied in numerous research projects. However, it is difficult to determine which approaches are most suitable under given system conditions. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to provide a literature review and an analysis of the efficiency of energy-oriented production planning and control approaches. It will be highlighted under which logistical system properties the investigated approaches are found to be effective and a comparison will be drawn. The results show that current research focuses mainly on scheduling procedures. Targets and suitable system conditions are potentially conflicting, so that a broader debate about the classification and applicability of methods is recommended.
