Energy efficiency in the industries is one of the leading problems of the 21st century. The main aim for the companies to deal with the energy efficiency paradigm is to save the resources in the manufacturing operations. Manufacturing operations involve activities that creates wastes in any case; therefore, these wastes should be eliminated, or minimized as much as possible. In this paper, it is aimed to integrate the energy efficiency term with lean management principles. The barriers and the drivers of the energy efficiency was discussed, and the 8 wastes within lean perspective were translated into energy counterparts. 8 wastes of lean approach were defined as energy efficiency perspective, and used as criteria. The study will reveal the important criteria using Fuzzy Analytic Network Process (Fuzzy ANP) method to make implications about how to eliminate these wastes.
