Sometimes it pays to take a closer look... at a distance

Discover the 'virtual' ABB Energy Snapshot

Your facility may have hundreds of motor-driven applications, like pumps, fans and compressors, many of which may not be operating at their optimum efficiency.

Video call training: Learn how to spot energy waste
Now you can learn the secrets of an ABB energy assessment from the comfort of your own desk. With social distancing making site visits less practical, our Lunch 'n' Learn video call training course shows the tricks to find those applications offering the best energy saving potential.

Numbers are limited, so book early
All we require is a minimum of 4 persons from the same company able to attend the course at the same time.

In just half-a-day we will spot a handful of motor-driven applications that are wasting energy and can benefit from variable speed drive control.

How it works

Outlining the scope

ABB_icon_48x48_helmet-461_helmetAn ABB-certified engineer visits your facility to identify the location and criticality of up to five applications that are wasting the most energy.  Any health and safety restrictions will also be identified, as well as anything unusual that may affect energy consumption.

Monitoring and data collection

ABB_icon_48x48_pump_pumpMotor name plate information and process control details are gathered from the client and the process for the purpose of data analysis. Typical applications examined include pumps, fans and compressors.

Data analysis

ABB_icon_48x48_laptop_app_laptop_appFindings are analysed to estimate present energy use and carbon dioxide emissions, and to identify savings and payback time if an investment in drives and/or motors is made.


ABB_icon_48x48_thumbs_up_0381_08_thumbs_up_0381An action plan is prepared highlighting the applications that offer the greatest/fastest opportunity to reduce energy consumption. Figures will normally be translated into annual savings, and there will be detailed recommendations for suitable drives or motors. Three separate tailored reports are created highlighting information relevant to financial controllers, energy managers and maintenance personnel.

Optional: Installation

ABB_icon_48x48_low_voltage_motor_low_voltage_motorMaximise the efficiency and reliability of VSDs and motors from day one by leaving installation and commissioning to an ABB-approved engineer.

Optional: Verification and follow up

ABB_icon_48x48_money_cash_money_cashOnce new equipment is fitted, energy consumption is tracked to enable predicted and actual savings to be compared.
The ABB Energy Snapshot is free with no obligation. If, once your energy assessment is complete, you are not fully convinced that the savings are achievable, we can arrange the loan of hire equipment to let you put our recommendations to the test.
