About the events
 
Welcome to the Factory Efficiency Days
 
We have a series of four business-relevant events lined up to inspire you with valuable and innovative ideas on how to elevate energy efficiency in your factory. We will talk to thought leaders within energy policies, energy management, distribution and consumption and take you through some of the technical trends that shape our society in 2021.​

We look forward to seeing you there!
 
Best regards,

Day 1: Energy efficiency is the first fuel and it’s readily available.
Timing: 25 May from 9:00-10:30 CET

The recordings from the event are now available. Here is the link to the on-demand experience.

Energy efficiency is the first fuel – it’s the fuel you don’t have to use so it’s basically money in the bank. And in terms of supply, it is abundantly available. As electric motors account for at least 50% of global electrical energy consumption, industry has great potential to achieve large-scale savings. If you get energy efficiency right, you not only save money, you also have a whole new “cash cow” in your portfolio, proving that energy efficiency is the best investment for your business. So, the question is no longer ‘why energy efficiency?’. It’s ‘how much can I save?’ 
 
Key takeaways 
#1 How to get your hands on the energy that is just wasted today? 
#2 How big an impact could this investment in energy efficiency have on your company?

Day 2: Data is power. Use it to enhance your performance.
Timing: 27 May from 9:00-10:30 CET

The recordings from the event are now available. Here is the link to the on-demand experience.

It’s safe to say the world is undergoing a huge digital transformation. We’re witnessing a profound change in technology, which has led to whole new ways of working in the digital age. An age that is enabling us to monitor and track the performance of our production and business to an unimaginable degree. Condition-based maintenance is one of the keys to unlocking system optimization using data. Remote monitoring and condition-based monitoring are tools that utilize data you already have to implement a future-proof maintenance system. It will allow you to base maintenance decisions on actual data rather than fixed time intervals. 
 
Key takeaways
#1 The closest you will come to predicting the future.
#2 Discover which data is already available to you – and start using it!

Day 3: Is DC-industry the production concept of the future?
Timing: 1 June from 9:00-10:30 CET

The recordings from the event are now available. Here is the link to the on-demand experience.

Will industrial production lines of tomorrow be DC-based? There are at least many arguments in favor. Climate-smart solutions such as solar panels and energy storage using batteries help prevent and reduce air pollution by means of DC technology. Converting DC to AC and back results in unnecessary losses. Having DC grids in industries, buildings and ships will not only make the use of green energy more efficient, it will allow other devices to easily use the energy generated in the systems itself. The technology won’t radically change our public electrical infrastructure as we know it today, but it will certainly help us use the produced energy more efficiently. 
 
Key takeaways
#1 Why you need both AC and DC.
#2 Make the most of the untapped savings potential in your factory.
 
Speakers
Olli-Pekka Aalto (B.Sc), Head of Global Energy & Power for Strategic Focus Industries at Danfoss Drives​
Prof. Dr. Holger Borcherding, Professor for Power Electronics, Electrical Drives and EMC at Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences and Arts

Day 4: Paving the way for a green and reliable pan-European power supply.
Timing: 8 June from 9:00-10:30 CET

The recordings from the event are now available. Here is the link to the on-demand experience.

Our energy system is changing rapidly, driven by ambitious political objectives to reduce greenhouse gasses as well as costs for green electricity production. Consequently, fossil fuels as a source of energy will be replaced sooner rather than later by electrification. It’s expected that electricity demand will more than double due to electrification. But electrification is more than just using electricity to heat, for road transport and datacenters. It also covers power-to-X of industrial processes, heavy transport at sea, road, and air. This development will be facilitated by increasing digitization, automation of an enormous amount of data and artificial intelligence to manage the increasing complexity. Making sure the energy supply of tomorrow is both green and reliable is no easy task. How can we ensure a stable and sustainable pan-European power supply isn’t just fantastic, but actually feasible?
 
Key takeaways
#1 How to utilize the advantages of electrification fully in your business?
#2 Thinking beyond sectors will open up new business opportunities.
