ABB Takes Action in Fight Against Climate Change


As concern continues to grow with the advancing effects of climate change, ABB is championing a proactive energy efficiency movement to educate U.S. industrial leaders about the challenges that contribute to energy wastage and environmental sustainability. By joining ABB in this endeavor, U.S. businesses have an opportunity to collectively reduce energy consumption, significantly slow the rate at which they are contributing to climate change, and mitigate the risk of overregulation in their industry.

These goals can be achieved by upgrading outdated industrial infrastructure with new generation energy-efficient technologies. such as high-efficiency motors and variable speed drives. The potential impact of this solution is illustrated in a recent report entitled U.S. Industrial and Commercial Motor System Market Assessment Report, co-authored by research scientist Dr. Prakash Rao, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, which highlights where some of the most prominent sources of energy wastage exist in our industrial and commercial infrastructure.

While the nature of ABB’s mission is alone reason enough to join in the company’s energy efficiency movement, the solutions offered by ABB make it all the more compelling. In most cases, according to ABB’s NEMA Motor Division President Jesse Henson, the savings as a result of a company’s increased energy efficiency can achieve a full return on the cost to install new generation technology within approximately two years of the original investment.

“While the adverse effects of climate change persist, ABB is investing in technologies which can help us all reduce our impact on the environment.” Henson said. ‘We now offer the most energy­ efficient motors and drives in the industry, so we are choosing to actively lead that discussion and educate our industrial partners on how they can reduce their electricity consumption and effectively slow the rate of climate change in the process.”

On December 8th ABB hosted an exclusive virtual roundtable discussion to explore the high­ efficiency solutions currently available on the market today and explain the proper course for affordable integration. Guests had the opportunity to hear from Dr. Prakash Rao. Jesse Henson and ABB Motion President Morton Wierod. Watch the On-Demand recap of this event, here!
