This research is conducted in a company engaged in the manufacture of pesticides. The company has never measured it's energy productivity. The company is only based on production targets and financial benefits achieved each year. One method that can be used in productivity measurement and operational feasibility is Energy Productivity Ratio (EPR). EPR is expressed as the ratio of energy output to the energy input. The feasibility of the company's operation can be seen from the energy productivity value. The purpose of research conducted to 1) Measure the level of energy productivity 2) Measuring the feasibility of the company's operations 3) Identify the factors that influence the value of energy productivity ratio (EPR) and 4) Provide proposed steps to increase energy productivity. EPR is made by collecting data on material requirements, power requirements, machine and equipment data and the number of products produced. After doing the calculation of energy input and energy output, the final step is to calculate the value of Energy Productivity Ratio (EPR). By this research we know the company is feasible to operate because the value of EPR> 1, although it must be repaired to increase the value.
Key words: Energy Productivity Ratio (EPR) / productivity energy / ratio / input / outpu
