Energy Savings To Date
*As of March 2023
On average, Energy Drive reduces their clients’ energy consumption by 47% on installed systems, while maintaining process requirements.
Energy Drive partners with companies from a range of major industries to actualise their energy-related sustainability goals. Using variable speed drives to reduce our clients’ energy consumption and achieve more efficient operations, we also lower energy-related business costs. We achieve this by removing the barriers to energy optimisation by taking on the risk and staying invested with our clients for the long term. By purchasing the required equipment, installing it, and ensuring that it runs effectively for as long as it’s on a client’s site, we have founded an innovative, fully engineered, turnkey sustainability solution executed via a zero-capex performance contract. It’s our way of providing sustainability as a service.
SIBANYE COLLABORATES TO SAVE ENERGY
One of Energy Drive's recent energy-saving successes was with leading international OEM Rockwell Automation and Sibanye-Stillwater in South Africa.
The project aim was to reduce the electricity consumption of large surface ventilation fans by installing VSDs to more efficiently control the speeds of the motors to achieve significant energy and cost savings which further provides a significant reduction in scope 2 emissions for Sibanye-Stillwater's site.

MEASUREMENT and VERIFICATION
Each Energy Drive system is monitored for electrical consumption, and system health and performance by Energy Drive sister-company, Apogee Analytics. With nearly a decade of experience in data collection and analytics of industrial fans, pumps, and motors, Apogee Analytics provides a wide range of services including:
Data storage and visualisation
Analysis of processes to evaluate energy saving opportunities
Alerting on process and equipment parameters or failure modes for preventative maintenance
Energy consumption data is sent to an independent third party, meaning the integrity of the data is of the highest standard. This information is available to clients via an access-controlled web page, while the Energy Drive control centre can analyse the data and generate any alerts, ensuring Energy Drive is always aware of the health of every system in the field.
INDUSTRIES THAT BENEFIT
Our efficiency solutions are proven to provide consistent energy savings in major industries.
The common elements across these sectors that enable sustainable energy savings are:
Ventilation and extraction,
heating and hydraulic
