Energy efficiency is one of the main contributors to reaching the Paris Agreement. By optimizing the world’s energy consumption, and being able to produce more from less, we can meet our increased energy demand and reduce CO2 emissions at the same time. In fact, according to the International Energy Agency, increased efficiency could account for more than 40% of emissions reductions in the next 20 years.
As much as 50% of today’s potential for energy efficiency saving comes from the industrial sector, and 30% can be achieved in buildings. And the solutions to enable these energy efficiency improvements already exist! At Alfa Laval, we have spent decades developing plate heat exchanger technologies that help businesses optimize energy use in their processes. Our products are used in everything from the heavy process industries to data centers, domestic heating and cooling, and much more. Our unique thermal solutions make it possible to save dramatic amounts of energy and thereby reduce carbon emissions – no matter the application!
