A cloud based on energy related information, which is provided as services from all system components from the shop floor to the management systems, is a desire of the industry business. This paper is based on the first part of a Case Study applied to the multinational company Schneider Electric, focused to a System of Systems approach for Energy Management. It presents a State-of-the-Art analysis of some general topics related to System of Systems, Energy Management, and European Projects in order to understand the new architecture approached today, and their care towards Energy Efficiency. This background helped to start a Case Study, which in its first part regards to Energy Efficiency tools from machine builders and the next step to EcoStruxure program. This approach explains its methodology and architecture inside the industry business. It is concluded generally that Schneider Electric, as one sample of the companies providing solutions for the industry, care about developing products, services, and projects oriented to an Energy Efficient world.
