Manufacturers can benefit from free guide to energy efficiency

A free energy-efficiency guide from ExxonMobil and ENER-G aims to help manufacturers understand all aspects of energy efficiency in their business and to help them implement changes that could reduce their energy consumption and cost.

The Energy Saving Guide for Business and Industry guide examines everything from the many requirements of UK energy-efficiency legislation to measures that could yield energy savings of as much as 20 per cent.

Here’s a rundown of some of the elements of energy efficiency covered in the guide:

  • Legislation that requires businesses to save energy and how to comply
  • How to identify areas where energy efficiency can be improved
  • Measures that increase energy efficiency and lower energy demand
  • The benefits of the latest energy-saving technology
  • How to access financial assistance for launching an energy-saving project

The manufacturing sector relies heavily on electric motors to power equipment such as conveyors, pumps, mixers, extruders and more. As well as upgrading motors to the latest IE3 and IE4 models, users can significantly increase energy efficiency by installing variable-speed drives in their process.

VSDs enable electric motor speed to be precisely controlled, meaning motor-driven processes consume only as much energy as is required to run at a given time. In applications where speed demand varies throughout the process, VSDs are an invaluable solution for minimising energy consumption and significantly reducing running costs.

Gibbons Engineering Group, as an Authorized Value Provider for ABB drives, is approved to recommend the ideal equipment to fully optimise manufacturing processes. We have decades of experience delivering projects within the manufacturing sector and our relationship with ABB gives us access to a vast network of VSD equipment and expertise.
