The 7th Sustainable Development Goal of the United Nations targets a twofold increase in energy efficiency improvement rates. However, the current global energy crisis from the Ukraine-Russia conflict adversely affects the manufacturing sector, the primary contributor to rising global electricity demand. In response, companies use energy management (EM) strategies to enhance efficiency and cut costs. Integrating technology information systems is a vital step in EM implementation, with digital technologies (DT) playing a key role in coordinating activities. This paper explores the relationship between energy management and digital technologies, delving into the technologies utilized for EM issues and their appli-cations. Conducting a systematic literature review using Scopus, Science Direct, and Web of Science databases, the study focused on energy and Industry 4.0 keywords over the past five years (2018-2023). Of 1,117 initially identified publications, 417 remained after removing duplicates, and only 40 papers met the inclusion criteria. The research identified 14 digital technologies, categorized into eight groups based on Industry 4.0 design principles. These categories were also used to classify the application of digital technologies in EM, aiding in determining the appropriate DT investments for specific applications. The study's limitation lies in its reliance on a literature review, and the proposed categorization awaits validation in real-case scenarios, paving the way for future research

Keyphrases: digital technologies, energy management, Industry 4.0
