International Benchmarking System for Industrial Enterprises
The Anselm index system is a methodology that allows owners and top management to automatically create a strategic roadmap to improve efficiency.
Max Kanischev
Founder of the project Anselm
Like Carl Linnaeus, using his system, classified the flora and fauna, so our team, using the developed scientific indices Anselm, classified, formalized and automated the process of identifying and prioritizing ways to improve energy efficiency of the enterprise and reduce emissions.

I have more than 10 years of experience in refining energy efficiency and I guarantee: no other system in the world does what Anselm is capable of.
This is a breakthrough in improving the energy efficiency of the enterprise and the return on investment.

There is no point in investing a penny in modernization, optimization, and inspection of installations, if the Anselm indicators are not calculated for them in advance.

Roadmap for improving energy efficiency, including capital costs, goals and profits.
Complete picture
You see ALL possible ways and methods to improve efficiency.
Increase profits
ALL the proposed activities are economically viable and bring the planned profit.
Most activities pay off in the first year of implementation.
Reducing energy consumption in the enterprise at least 12% from the current level.
Our practical experience says that the lack of a complete picture hides from the owner the possibilities, calculated in tens of millions of rubles.
Our presentation presents a real case with a NPV difference of 800 million rubles.
The use of Anselm indexes is a breakthrough, a scientific discovery in the process of improving energy efficiency.
As a result of the digitization of the enterprise's energy efficiency process with the help of Anselm indices, the management will receive a complete map of energy efficiency weaknesses and an understanding of where the money should be sent first and how to effectively manage them.

Roman Chibisov
Investing in energy efficiency measures, the management does not know the key things:
Is this the most effective event of all possible?
Funds can be directed to actually unprofitable projects or to projects with low efficiency, in conditions where the most interesting are , from an economic point of view, projects in principle have not been identified and have not been identified due to the lack of a systematic approach.
Does the investment in this installation bring the maximum effect?
This situation forms a "blind zone" around energy efficiency projects, movement in which is fraught with errors and economic losses. The lack of a comprehensive view leads to mistakes in planning, inefficiency of investments, frustration in the very essence of energy efficiency.
What is the energy efficiency limit, in other words - are the investments economically justified in reducing the specific consumption of fuel and energy resources at the plant?
As a result, the essence of energy efficiency measures is reduced to the senseless pursuit of Solomon's "quartiles" (for refineries) and a decrease in specific indicators of fuel and energy resources, regardless of the economic feasibility of such a reduction, which, in fact, leveled management efforts in other areas and harms production.


Anselm give the state the opportunity to compare energy efficiency indicators of various industries and set goals to reduce energy consumption.
  • automate the identification of the installation's energy efficiency potential
  • determine the economically reasonable minimum consumption of fuel and energy resources
  • allow you to identify the most attractive investment projects to improve energy efficiency
  • guarantee profit from energy efficiency projects
  • Technological scoring of the borrower's enterprise
  • Assessment of asset potential
  • Validity of the amount of requested credit funds
    • determine the quality of doing business
    • evaluate management effectiveness
    • level of modernization of the enterprise
    • provide an effective risk assessment mechanism
    Anselm indicators can be calculated for all units of oil refineries and petrochemicals.

    How we do it

    Determination of energy saving potential for all units
    Potential is calculated for 2 levels:

    1. Technically achievable, based on the actual configuration and installation status and
    2. Target, economically sound level.
    Breakdown of capacity to sources of efficiency
    Sources of efficiency increase in the general case are:
    • Ovens
    • Heat transfer system
    • Electrical equipment
    • Technology
    Forming a map of efficiency projects
    Projects are ranked by the magnitude of the effect achieved and are presented as a graphical, visually understandable map.
    Allocation of priority projects
    From the map of projects are selected "cream" - projects with maximum potential. As a rule, 20% of the total number of projects make it possible to close 80% of the total potential for energy efficiency of production.
    Project Budget Calculation
    For projects selected at stage 4, on the basis of basic estimates, the costs are determined in the implementation, including capital costs, design, construction and installation, and commissioning.
    Selection of target projects
    Based on the prerequisites of the company's planning, the largest economic indicators: IRR, NPV, DPP, PI, projects are ranked by efficiency.
    Goal setting
    Based on the ranked list of projects from stage 6, specific strategic objectives for improving efficiency are set, with a specific effect and a time frame for achievement, a roadmap for implementation is being formed.

    Observation Council


    The method allows to determine energy efficiency (potential for energy efficiency) from single equipment to the process, installation, group of units and refineries as a whole.
    The calculation does not require instrumental examinations.
    The method identifies the source of inefficient energy consumption for each level and indicates its exact numerical value, including the types of fuel and energy resources
    After calculating indicators (indices) for all levels (from single equipment to refineries), it becomes possible to set goals and objectives, in order of importance.
    The method provides a tool for managing energy efficiency at all levels - from top management to plant managers , with an appropriate level of generalization or detail.
    The method allows you to manage energy efficiency processes in different planning horizons (both daily (data automation is needed) and strategic).
    The method allows to determine the energy efficiency of both existing plants, and only those designed, in order to fully understand their impact on refinery energy efficiency indicators as a whole.

    Over the past few years, we surveyed about two hundred process plants, more than 10 refineries in Russia.
    The challenge we faced was simple: at a particular facility, increase energy efficiency by a specific percentage value.

    We met all the challenges.

    With the help of our scientific method of SELOOP analysis, we reduced the power consumption on units by an average of 30%, without changing the technological mode.
    The minimum effect shown by us was 12%.

    This in itself is an astounding achievement. Nobody in the world has done this before us.

    However, there were difficulties.

    On some units, we easily achieved our goals, on some it was difficult, because the installations were already well integrated.
    We asked technologists at the refinery how they chose the plants for the survey and how they determined the target percentage of consumption reduction.
    The answer was the same everywhere "by experience."
    But were the MOST inefficient plants chosen, and was the TARGET percentage set for reducing the consumption of fuel resources set?
    The answer, unfortunately, is NO.
    In terms of units, the potential revealed by us was EXTREMELY higher than the specified one. These are TENS of MILLIONS of DOLLARS of losses annually.
    Losses that management DOES NOT SEE.

    At that moment, our leader, Max Kanischev, asked the question - can we make a system that would allow without instrumental surveys, quickly and accurately determine the energy efficiency potential of a unit, decompose it by type of resources and up to single equipment? Show management where exactly those millions of dollars of lost effect.

    Five years after that, five years of scientific research, mistakes, experiments, and approbations, we created the Anselm system.

    The system that answers these questions.
