Factory Efficiency Days: Energy efficiency is the first fuel

Energy efficiency is the first fuel and it's readily available

Energy efficiency is the first fuel. It’s the fuel you don’t have to use, so it’s basically money in the bank. And in terms of supply, it is abundantly available. As electric motors account for at least 50% of global electrical energy consumption, industry has great potential to achieve large-scale savings. 

If you get energy efficiency right, you not only save money, but you also have a whole new “cash cow” in your portfolio, proving that energy efficiency is the best investment for your business.

So, the question is no longer "Why energy efficiency?" — it’s "How much can I save?’"

Your key takeaways

  1. How to get your hands on the energy that is just wasted today?
  2. How big an impact could this investment in energy efficiency have on your company?

Keynote speakers

Hugo Salamanca, Energy Policy Analyst at IEA, will present the multiple benefits of increasing energy efficiency across industries. He estimates that 600 billion USD could potentially be saved by increasing energy efficiency in industrial applications. This would enhance not only competitiveness, but also kick-start the much-needed green energy transition.
