Energy efficiency is a topic that has become central among many consumers and industries. Companies need to minimize production costs and, at the same time, reduce energy consumption and follow policy measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. One possibility to contribute to the sustainable design of production processes is the inclusion of energy consumption as a parameter in the optimization technique used during production scheduling. Although energy-efficient scheduling and optimization have become a scientific focus in production scheduling, practical applications are limited. The motivation of this paper is to extract energy-efficient production scheduling mechanisms from the literature using a literature review and to discuss the concepts with experts from the field. Finally, discrepancies between the needs of the industry and the scientific literature are revealed, and solution approaches to remedy the differences are proposed.
