Variable Speed Drives:

Reducing energy costs in bakeries


Cost control, compliance requirements and environmental sustainability are important factors that contribute to the prioritization of energy efficiency in baking operations. Installing Variable Speed Drives (VSDs) on motor driven equipment is one of the most important energy efficiency interventions to help reduce energy consumption and operating costs in the sector.

Topics covered in this brochure include:

  • Sector overview.
  • What is a VSD?.
