A new report from Siemens Financial Services illustrates the cost saving potential in the industrial sector through the use of energy-efficient technologies.

Industrial enterprises across the world could save billions of pounds on their electricity bills by implementing variable speed drives (VSDs) on motors in their production environment. The report calculates that up to £2,512 million of energy cost savings could be gained in UK industry with the full implementation of VSDs over the next five years. Germany could see larger gains of up to £5,193 million, more than double the potential savings in the UK. This SFS report, which quantifies potential energy-efficiency gains from VSD implementation, highlights just one of several energy-efficiency initiatives that could lead to substantial cost savings in the industrial sector.

The most receptive applications for VSDs tend to be pumps, fans and centrifugal compressors.
