Why Energy Efficiency Should Be A Top Business Priority:

1. Reduce energy costs

Using less energy will lead to a reduction of energy costs. Either your overall energy costs will go down or the energy cost per item produced will go down.

2. Increase Production Capacity

Use the same amount of energy to produce more. Energy efficiency can help you expand production capacity without having to buy more energy e.g. for an additional production line.

3. Prepare for Future Energy Situation

If the energy prices in Bangladesh will increase in the coming years or if there will be continued shortage of energy (e.g. gas, diesel etc.), it is good business strategy start now using energy as efficiently as possible.

4. Reduce CO2 Emissions

Lowering CO2 emissions is critical to combat climate change and to reducing the effects of pollution.

5. Green Profile Towards Clients

Get a more green and sustainable profile towards buyers and clients e.g. show how much you have reduced CO2 emissions or measure the carbon footprint of your products.

What is Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a way of managing and restraining the growth in energy consumption. Something is more energy efficient if it delivers more services for the same energy input, or the same services for less energy input.

  • when a lighting technology (e.g. LED) uses less energy than existing bulbs (e.g. incandescent or CFL) to produce the same amount of light.
  • when installing an exhaust gas boiler can save many m3 of gas which can be used for expanding production.
  • when optimizing energy use to produce more with the same or less energy.
