Lift Energy Services
We are specialist lift consultants with many years experience carrying out lift energy surveys and producing energy certificates. We work across the UK and internationally with an in-house specialist lift department who can improve the energy efficiency of new and existing lifts.
We can help you:
We connect energy monitoring equipment to measure the lift’s energy use over a fixed period (the results are as shown in the graph below). We then analyse the results and recommend ways to reduce energy.
We model future, likely energy use to help determine the best investment approach and predict the affect in changes of use.
We analyse lift requirements, recommend features and issue a report to the BREEAM assessor for consideration.
VDI (Verein Deutscher Ingenieure) are the German Association of Engineers; they have developed a method to classify the energy efficiency of lifts in a similar manner to white goods, A-G. The objective was to develop a universal, transparent representation of any lift’s energy efficiency using standard criteria.
The lift industry is adopting this standard and promoting it as a quality standard with lift owners having an increasing willingness to display the energy credentials of their lift publicly. Adoption of this process is widespread in Germany and gaining ground in China, with wide anticipation that this will become a harmonised European Standard. We can measure and certify lifts to this standard.
