ABOUT US



ABOUT US

Since 2011, Energy Drive has pursued a single vision:

We want to change the way our World uses energy.

Disruptive innovation and collaborative partnerships with our clients are at the core of our business. We are not afraid to challenge the status quo with progressive and robust solutions to ensure energy savings for our clients. We provide the resources and commitment to overcome barriers to energy efficiency in industrial installations by offering:

In pursuit of our long-term vision, we have partnered with major companies in a range of industries, including mining and metals, chemicals, general manufacturing, food and beverage production, paper and packaging, textiles, power generation and rubber.

We provide the necessary Capex, project, engineering and M&V resources required to implement our efficiency solutions in your industrial installations.

We offer to fund the capital outlay for your system if your capital is limited. The net effect is a reduction in energy costs - even after paying for our services.

We develop bespoke VSD solutions after agreeing with you on a consumption baseline. To do this, we use relevant operational assumptions and parameters.

We work with you, retaining risk for your energy-saving installations over the entire term of the service agreements. This approach ensures consistent return on investment for you.
