Improving energy efficiency is the fastest, the most sustainable and the cheapest way to reduce energy consumption, lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and enhance energy security. ABB drives can help lower energy consumption by using energy more efficiently. Drives adjust the speed of electric motors to match the actual demand of the application thereby reducing motor energy consumption by typically 20 to 50 percent. Over the past 40 years ABB has delivered millions of drives to every type of application in all industries. During this time, vast experience has been gained of how industry can save energy in the most effective ways.
The energy saving potential in industries and utilities is enormous. Nearly 70 percent of all electrical energy consumed by industry is used by the millions of electrical motors installed worldwide. Every year, several more million motors are added. These motors are the workhorses of industry, driving machines, compressors, fans, pumps, conveyors and processes in virtually all industrial sectors. Not only are pumps and fans numerous, they also have the greatest energy saving potential.
To learn more about how ABB drives can help to save energy in all of your processes and industries, please contact your nearest ABB office or ABB drives channel partner and read the ABB drives and motors for improving energy efficiency (Brochure, pdf, 1,68 MB).
EnergySave calculator is a user-friendly and interactive energy saving calculator for comparing AC drive control against traditional flow control methods in different applications such as fan and pump.
