Fact: ABB’s electronic variable-speed drives are major energy savers, environmentally friendly and a wise investment

With an estimated 65% of industrial electrical energy used by electric motors, it is no wonder that major users in industry increasingly see energy reduction as a key to improving their profitability and competitiveness. Because variable-speed drives reduce energy consumption while increasing productivity, they can, depending on the application, pay for themselves within a few months.

As well as being a cost issue, energy efficiency is also an environmental one. With legislation in place in Europe to curb CO2 emissions, industry is searching for technologies that can help reduce emission levels. It is estimated that ABB drives installed around the world during the past 12 years reduce global CO2 emissions by about 68 million tonnes every year. This is a little less than the emissions of a country the size of Finland, with a population of over five million people.
