NEW BERLIN, Wis. - ABB, an automation technology company that enables utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact, released a new white paper, "Energy Efficiency: The Other Fuel Alternative," which discusses the forces driving energy prices now and into the future, and explains why waiting for a solution to be developed later on could prove expensive for the industry.

The white paper describes, "Proven methods for industry to reduce energy consumption and environmental impact are already at hand. These cost-effective solutions promise substantial return-on-investment now and in the future, without sacrificing performance or quality. For most companies and organizations, the answers to maintaining a competitive edge in this era of rising energy costs are readily available.

By applying a suite of cost-effective power and automation solutions from technology leaders like ABB, these facilities can achieve substantial energy savings today without waiting for the ‘alternative fuels' of the future."

Other topics discussed include "Efficiency in Asset Use," "Efficiency of Motion," and "Energy Efficiency as an Energy Solution." Industrial application examples include the use of drives, robotics technology, propulsion, and combustion performance to improve efficiency. This white paper is available for download at www.abb.com. Click on the search button in the upper right hand corner and type in "energy efficiency."
