Net Zero Launch Event 2023

Welcome to our Net zero launch event #5!

The impact of smarter energy solutions for heavy process industry

According to the COP28 agreement, the world must double the rate of energy efficiency to reach net zero targets by 2030. Thus, using energy in the most efficient way is essential for meeting the increasing global energy demand while reducing CO2 emissions.

Since heavy process industry is one major energy consumer, there is much to gain by implementing smarter energy solutions. Investing in energy efficiency not only supports companies in meeting their sustainability targets but also boosts financial performance. Get insight on how to work with energy efficiency improvements in your plant, at Alfa Laval’s upcoming Net zero event  focusing on improving energy efficiency for heavy process industry.

Industry leaders and experts will take the stage to share valuable insights, best practices, and technological expertise on the matter. During the panel discussions, we will deep-dive into critical topics in the industry including:

  • The significance of energy efficiency – what practical solutions are available for implementation today?
  • The value of choosing the right technology and implementing effective maintenance strategies.
  • How investing in energy efficiency today can maximize your long-term savings.
  • Collaboration is key – how to improve energy efficiency in your plant through partnerships: learn from best practices.
