Executive Summary

The escalating price of fossil fuels marked by fierce global competition is driving process industry decision makers to rethink the way their businesses will perform in the future. In order to stay competitive, manufacturers will have to develop strategies to conserve energy and limit their usage of depleting fossil fuel reserves. However, the challenge in achieving this goal is to do so without disrupting production. This is where the integration of Smart Motor Controls (MCCs) into a process automation system can play a vital role in your energy conservation strategy.

In 2005, the Energy Information Administration reported that 80% of the total energy consumed in the U.S. industrial sector is used predominately by the process industries. Sixty-four percent of the energy consumed in a process plant today is used to operate motors.1 In the future there will be limited energy resources to sustain process manufacturing factories. Your operation will depend on how well your company can manage its energy consumption.
