Energy issues are considered one of the important subjects that pay the attention of researchers and this is due to increasing cost of conventional energy as well as the corresponding environmental impacts. The industrial sector represents a significant branch of energy consumption all over the world especially in the industrialized countries. The energy demand in industrial sector in Palestine increases with acceptable rate and in the same time mostly all the energy resources are imported from the Israeli side. To mitigate this problem a further utilization of renewable energy and energy management should be considered. The percentage of electricity consumption in industrial sector is 37% to other sectors and the percentage of fuel and oil consumption is 42%. This thesis studies the possibility of implementation energy efficiency opportunities to three industries in Palestine in order to efficiently contribute in solving the problems in energy in West Bank. The Golden Wheat Mills Company (GWMC), National Beverages Company (NBC) and National Aluminum and Profile Company (NAPCO) are taken as samples to assess the available energy efficiency opportunities especially those companies are considered large according to Palestinian classification. The studied energy efficiency opportunities includes the analyzing of tariff system, load factor, power factor, lighting system, motors, compressed air systems and LPG burners. The achieved saving in energy are ranging from 15.7% to 18.7%. On the other hand a grid-connected PV system is suggested which saves 10% of electrical energy by applying net metering system. The annual saving in electrical energy is 1.37 MWh and 104 ton LPG which reduces the operating cost to about 2.5 million NIS at simple payback period ranges from 2.42 to 4.45 years. The annual reduced amounts of CO2 emissions are 450.47 ton, 888.21 ton and 948.85 ton in GWMC, NBC and NAPCO, respectively.
