Energy consulting

Find and take advantage of energy savings potential in drive technology: Customer- and sector-specific energy consulting helps you find the right strategy at the right time, whether for existing or new systems.

Customized energy consulting for greater efficiency

Energy efficiency, sustainability and reaching specified climate protection goals are becoming more and more important in many sectors. Energy costs can constitute up to 90% of the lifetime costs of systems that have not been optimized.

How energy efficient a solution is doesn't depend solely on the drive components used. Ongoing analysis and consulting also have a decisive impact. This is why our energy efficiency specialists conduct a customized and complete check of your drive systems as well as your applications. They make sure that all possible energy-saving factors are identified and implemented consistently. This is what makes energy consulting the central service in our effiDRIVE®energy efficiency concept. It is based on a sophisticated analysis concept with practical tools.


Our energy consulting will help your company stay competitive. It helps you reduce CO2emissions while also pointing the way as part of climate protection and a sophisticated sustainability aspect.


We offer you a custom solution profile for your energy management in four steps:

Overview of energy consulting services

1. Basic consulting

Identifying sustainability options and determining energy savings potential

effiDRIVE® basic consulting provides a comprehensive energy efficiency service package. Being in direct contact with your effiDRIVE® energy consultant will allow you to set the focus in advance. But we also give you the option of familiarizing yourself first with the topic of energy efficiency before meeting with our specialists for consulting. We provide various support tools to do this.

Your benefit: You will quickly gain an extensive and detailed overview of the topics of energy efficiency, general legal regulations and technical options.

  • Basic knowledge of modern energy management and the individual components in the effiDRIVE® modular energy efficiency system
  • Qualified basic consulting in regard to all relevant legal and standardized regulations for your specific sector
  • Consistent identification of energy savings potential and options using practical calculation examples and reference projects

2. Data collection

Evaluate practically and specifically

By systematically collecting all relevant data, we unerringly determine the current energy consumption of your systems. This actual analysis using modern tools and procedures forms the basis for all subsequent steps.

Your benefit: You obtain optimal insight into the consumption parameters of your systems with the right tools and analytical techniques.

  • Data collection by our effiDRIVE® energy consultant with site inspection and AWTec power measuring directly on site
  • Optional data collection by you using standardized and application-specific questionnaires.
  • Identification of all energy savings potential while determining implementation priorities

3. Energy efficiency analysis

Consistently identify energy savings potential

Based on the gathered application data and actual values, our effiDRIVE® energy consultant creates a detailed energy efficiency analysis for you. The energy savings potential of the existing drive components is precisely determined, drive alternatives identified and the incurred costs transparently calculated. We have provided you with a function in our SEW-EURODRIVE Workbench configuration tool to act as a helpful resource: the energy consumption analysis.

Your benefit: The energy efficiency analysis by SEW-EURODRIVE gives you a transparent overall view of your systems. This can be used to determine energy-saving upgrades to your drives. What we offer you:

  • A detailed energy report for every system
  • Options for energy-efficiency components and systems
  • Documentation of the results of the consultation regarding the energy report

4. Performance review

Simply letting the results speak for themselves

The effiDRIVE® performance review is used to optimally verify all recorded data and measures taken. At the core of the system is a detailed comparison of all values before retrofitting with the results after the energy efficiency overhaul.

Your benefit: With the performance review, our effiDRIVE® energy consultant accompanies you through the entire conversion phase and promptly delivers the final report containing the recorded values after conversion.

We offer you professional energy consulting down to our innovative drive solutions with an efficiency of up to IE4, and all from a single source. This saves you time when designing new systems and effort when individually retrofitting existing systems.

  • Comparison measurements to verify the energy efficiency measures taken
  • Consulting and support throughout the entire conversion process
  • Final project log including measurements
  • Use of the empirical values for other energy efficiency projects in your company

Your benefits

  • Integrated consulting

    With our seasoned energy efficiency specialists who always look at your entire system, including all components and factors.
  • Resources available for the future

    Thanks to targeted consulting that helps minimize your energy costs and make room for other important investments.

Energy savings calculator to quickly determine potential

Our free software tool, the energy savings calculator, lets you very easily calculate yourself how much energy you can save by using our energy-efficient motors. With the click of a mouse, you can perform energy comparison calculations between standard motors (IE1 = standard efficiency) and energy-efficient motors (IE2 = high efficiency, IE3 = premium efficiency). The energy comparison calculation is based on your customer data, such as operating time, motor utilization and power costs. This lets you find out how quickly your investment in more energy-efficient drive technology will pay for itself.

Energy consumption analysis in the SEW-EURODRIVE Workbench configuration tool

Our SEW-EURODRIVE experts and our customers have another resource in the form of a special function in the SEW-EURODRIVE Workbench configuration tool : the energy consumption analysis. The resulting energy report includes the complete energy consumption for your specific application and the planned drive train. This gives you the basis for choosing the most energy-efficient drive technology for you.
