Thank you for your patience.
Improve efficiency, productivity, safety and quality by converting your equipment and processes from coal, gas and oil to electricity. Although electric vehicles get a lot of the attention, the fundamental changes of converting from fossil-fueled technologies to electric are also happening for many other ways that businesses use energy.
Electrification should be on your radar for current and future operational planning. Advances in technology make electricity the cost-saving choice for industrial operations, transportation and heating and cooling in a wide range of applications. You can electrify almost anything. Discover some of the common processes and machines we’ve seen electrified.
Electric forklifts are a great option for lifting more while lowering costs. Fuel costs can be up to 80% lower for those who switch to electricity as their “fuel”. And electric forklifts cost 40% less to maintain. In addition to lower fuel and maintenance costs, electric forklifts generate zero emissions, making your workspace healthier for employees. See how much your business could save by switching to electric forklifts with our quick savings calculator.
Infrared (IR) curing is increasingly becoming the preferred technology for curers. Why? Electric IR curing is twice as fast as gas convection curing, 50% more energy-efficient, and can control a tighter temperature range making it a better solution for today’s water-based coatings and electrostatic powders. Pair that with a smaller footprint and no emissions and electric IR curing becomes the obvious choice for your operation.

Electric induction heating is changing the entire surface treatment process. By heating the metal directly, rather than an oven, the process is 10 times faster, more precise — within 1° — and far more efficient. Most importantly, the annual costs of electric induction heating can be up to 80 percent lower than gas furnaces.
Discover the benefits
Heat pump technology is the most efficient and sustainable heating and cooling option available. Heat pumps can provide all the heating and cooling needs for businesses for many reasons, including the energy-efficiency benefits of transferring heat instead of making it.
Each system can heat and cool using the same equipment, creating the potential for improved individual zone control and comfort, maximized efficiency with minimal utility operating costs, and no onsite combustion of carbon fuels.

An electric heat pump water heater pulls heat energy from the air around it to heat water. Electric heat pump water heaters are the most energy efficient water heaters on the market. They heat water for much less than natural gas water heaters and are a smart choice for your business.
Variable Refrigerant Flow systems take the flexibility and efficiency of heat pump systems to a new level. Not only can they provide heating or cooling without burning carbon fuels, but they can heat and cool simultaneously depending on the needs of different spaces in the building.
An electric arc furnace is the most efficient, safest alternative for heating your space, with an AFUE rating of 95%-100%. While the initial capital costs are a consideration, the lifetime savings that can be achieved by installing electric equipment instead of the alternative can be found in reduced maintenance and energy expenditures. If you have sustainability or carbon reduction goals, the arc furnace should be considered. Reach out to our energy solutions experts to learn more about this technology.
Indoor agriculture’s global growth is being driven by its numerous potential benefits. The modern technologies and innovative designs of indoor farms create ideal conditions to accelerate crop growth and increase annual yields. It eliminates the need for fossil-fuel powered farm tending equipment and pollution of our rivers, streams, and oceans caused by field runoff of fertilizer and pesticides. This technological advancement requires minimal to no soil, which is becoming increasingly important and needs 95% less water to produce crops. Because crops grown indoors are isolated from weather conditions, indoor farms are able to produce year-round, providing food security.
Today’s pipelines are forced to navigate uneven terrain and zigzag populated areas. Growing demands on these systems require advanced technologies, and represent a cybersecurity risk. Electric pipeline compressors are stepping up to the plate with more sustained pressure, a smaller footprint and location flexibility. And while implementing a new station can be a large investment, you can realize a return on your investment based on fuel savings alone in just one to three years.
Energy conversion is not limited to the applications listed above. Switching your equipment and processes to electricity saves costs and implements advanced technologies that can improve the quality, efficiency and safety in other applications such as:
