Electrification of industrial processes decrease carbon footprint
Aurora’s network solutions play an important role in reducing the carbon footprint of industrial sites. Electrifying industrial processes often means increasing grid capacity and analyzing the customer’s consumption profile. Due care in planning is important because network solutions have significant impact to industrial site competitiveness and e.g. network losses.
The majority of Aurora’s own carbon footprint is the result of network losses, which are closely monitored at Aurora. The customer’s consumption profile and source of electricity greatly impacts the emissions of network losses. Our customers are committed to increasing the share of renewable energy sources in their electricity mix, which compensates the carbon footprint of network losses due to the increased use of electricity. Foreseen network losses has always been a criteria for selecting equipment. Read more about Aurora’s carbon footprint.
