Energy efficiency as success factor
On average, energy costs account for 10% of all production costs. In energy-intensive industries such as steel, chemicals or pharmaceuticals, the percentage is even higher. Here, energy alone accounts for up to 40% of the production costs. Changing energy markets and energy politics further increase pressures on industry. As a result, there is a great deal of potential for energy savings.
Our solutions can increase your competitiveness and make your production more secure for the future – in the process, transforming your energy from a burdensome cost factor into a true asset. Our innovative drive technologies, for example, enable savings of up to 30% and more. As a result, we are able to provide a major contribution toward making energy efficient production a reality – for our customers and for ourselves.
