Vacon has said that it will work with WWF Finland to decrease the impacts of climate change and, in doing so, highlight the organisation’s ‘valuable work’.

After making the announcement, detailing the partnership that will increase public awareness of energy-saving benefits of Vacon’s technology, Vesa Laisi, president and CEO, said: “We want to take a more goal-oriented attitude to preventing climate change by increasing public awareness of energy saving benefits of AC drives.”

The Finland-based AC drives manufacturer will distribute information on sustainable energy developments various channels.

Timo Tanninen, CEO of WWF Finland, said: “Improving energy efficiency is a fundamental means of preventing climate change. The use of AC drives helps to achieve this goal in a concrete and cost-effective way.”

Electrical motors consume about one third of the world’s electrical energy. The use of energy-efficient motors and an increased use of AC-drive-controlled motors would bring energy savings of 25-30%.
