How much is the investment in a new transformer compared to total lifetime cost, including losses?

during my last post I was looking for examples where you see the investment in a device compared with the total lifetime costs, for example energy. You see them often for electric motors or lamps. It surprises people if they see that an electric motor may cost only 5% of its consumed energy in for example 15 years. You see them often in pie diagrams.
I would like to find such examples for transformers. There are a lot of stepdown transformers in enterprises that are connected to medium voltage and I understood from articles on the Internet that there is a lot of savings potential here, because many installed transformers are from a year when technology was really different.
The posting is already there, but I usually go deeper on the subjects in my posts in my newsletter, so I would like to have your feedback or links to examples.
Thank you in advance and let's wake up the owners of transformers (many maybe don't even know they have them). It will hopefully make it also more difficult to find a burning transformer and shoot an image as I used in the post today.
