Energy Efficiency (EE) refers to actions of various kinds culminating in reducing the energy needed to meet the demands of society for energy services in the form of light, heat / cold, drive, transport and use in processes. This chapter aims to develop an energy efficiency management process aimed at improving performance of transport companies in relation to diesel consumption, which was applied in Transnordestina Railway. In parallel were developed activity streams for information management, ensuring the standardization of procedures created, more training of staff involved, monitoring of activities and greater ease in obtaining data and information. The result of this work was the implementation of the suggested processes, resulting in reduced spending on diesel fuel consumed by the Transnordestina railroad, improving the energy efficiency indicator by more than 10% and a real financial gain for the company.
