On the Road to Green Machines...How OEMs Can Improve the Energy Efficiency of Machines
Recent studies show that OEMs are well-aware of the available energy efficiency technologies for improving the efficiency of their equipment and machines. But while many OEMs are conscious of the growing pressure and demands coming from the market, they are reluctant to make changes due to the perception that new technologies will make their machines more expensive to sell. In fact, companies that endorse energy efficiency and sustainability in their thinking experience stronger loyalty from their customers. This document will discuss how adopting an energy efficiency strategy concerning automation and control systems can help OEMs develop more sustainable and energy-efficient machines, as well as how these new technologies that OEMs can use to differentiate their offerings bring benefits and new values to end users.
