Hitachi and energy efficiency
KNOWLEDGE IS THE FOUNDATION FOR EFFICIENCY.
Today, as never before, in light of ongoing increases in the costs of electric power and gas, it is essential that we make it a priority to know and monitor our energy consumption and be aware of how we are using it. That is why Hitachi has created a special division to take on the issue of streamlining energy efficiency, with an industrial approach based on a scientific method: H-Vision.
Hitachi has always been active in various areas of industry and boasts a wealth of real-world experience in energy components.
We have made the most of our long years of experience, adopting as our own the principle that in energy conversion, whether it occurs in an electric engine or in a heat-production system, the aspect on which we must place the greatest focus is efficiency; in other words, the efficiency of the conversion itself.
UNDERSTANDING THE BENEFITS OF INVESTING IN STREAMLINING ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Energy efficiency is an issue that is as crucial as it is current.
Global competition has led to a need for every sector (industrial, civil, service) to reduce its costs in the interests of continuing optimisation.
In any process, since spending on energy occupies a key role, “energy savings” must be viewed, first and foremost, as a rationalisation of production processes.
The next step must be to identify, with the utmost accuracy, the degree of efficiency of energy use, so as to determine which actions which would provide the best cost-benefit ratio.
Nonetheless, we must also take special care with regard to the environment, because it is our duty to leave posterity with a better world than the one we
