Energy efficiency has been the subject of discussion throughout the world, not only for optimization of process costs, but also by some crises identified in the energy matrix. On this context, a research agenda for energy efficiency can take assist effect in finding solutions to reduce energy consumption (or smart consumption) in industrial environments. Therefore, the main objective of this paper was to create a research agenda for energy efficiency in industrial environments, using, for this, systematic review of the literature as a fundamental methodology in the search for material that could enhance our understanding of the subject under study, identifying relevant texts to it. Once selected a portfolio of reading, it was possible to outline a statistical look around the literature, proposing indicators for analysis, as authors, countries, institutions, journals, keywords and topics and the development of the research agenda with major authors, themes and magazines. A research agenda on energy efficiency can be the start point for the studies of management practices focused on efficient use of energy. In this study, however, was limited to work only eitgh databases, given the importance in the engineering area.
