Efficiency-as-a-Service (EaaS) Webinar – Energy efficient food and process industries through servitisation

Markets for industrial usage of energy consuming services such as heating and cooling, refrigeration, compressed air are currently in full development. The focus on energy efficiency, circularity and electrification in value chains is increasing while there is much to be gained. Energy-saving potential for compressed air applications in industry is estimated at 20%-50% whereas compressed air is responsible for around 10% of industrial electricity consumption.

Servitisation business models can facilitate and accelerate the market adoption of more sustainable solutions by creating win-win situations for suppliers, customers and financiers and removing common barriers. For example, they not only encourage suppliers to optimise efficiency over a longer period of time, but also partially or fully remove high investment costs and technological complexity for end-users.

Join us on March 16th and learn more about why pioneering and successful businesses shifted to innovative servitisation business models, the obstacles and risk, receive unique insights in current practices of compressed air servitisation, and participate in the Q&A.
