Factory Efficiency Days: Is DC-industry the future of production?

Date: 1 June, 2021
Location: Online

Welcome to the Factory Efficiency Days  

We have a series of four business-relevant events lined up to inspire you with valuable and innovative ideas on how to elevate energy efficiency in your factory. The events will make a real difference for you and your business. We will talk to thought leaders within energy policies, energy management, distribution and consumption and take you through some of the technical trends that shape our society in 2021.

Will industrial production lines of tomorrow be DC-based? There are at least many arguments in favor. Climate-smart solutions such as solar panels and energy storage using batteries help prevent and reduce air pollution by means of DC technology. Converting DC to AC and back results in unnecessary losses. Having DC grids in industries, buildings and ships will not only make the use of green energy more efficient, it will allow other devices to easily use the energy generated in the systems itself. The technology won’t radically change our public electrical infrastructure as we know it today, but it will certainly help us use the produced energy more efficiently. 

Your key takeaways

  1. Why you need both AC and DC.
  2. Make the most of the untapped savings potential in your factory.
