Energy efficiency – the fast track to a sustainable energy future


Available technology can

Available technology can significantly increase energy efficiency Enormous potential for reducing losses along the energy chain Primary energy Power generation Transmission and distribution Available energy Only 20 percent of energy generated by fossil fuels reaches the end-consumer. 4 Energy efficiency the fast track to a sustainable energy future

Industry Commercial and residential buildings Transportation of people and goods Around 80% of energy is lost before it reaches the end-consumer 20-30% gained using available technology The chart above shows the estimated savings potential along the major steps of the energy value chain of ABB. Applying readily available technologies along the energy value chain would reduce energy losses and therefore CO 2 emissions, helping to mitigate climate change. Such technologies typically pay for themselves within a few years through lower energy costs. Available technology could double energy efficiency levels. This paper provides a brief overview of the savings potential across the energy value chain from technologies that are available today.
