Powerstar has helped thousands of business and public sector organisations improve energy efficiency in a wide range of settings, including: manufacturing facilities, education institutions, healthcare facilities, retail outlets, and hospitality.
One Powerstar technology that can provide instant, and consistent energy consumption savings is voltage regulation. The National Grid commonly supplies electricity at 242V, well above the optimal level for most equipment and appliances of 220V. Voltage regulation tackles issues of overvoltage and regulates, cleanses, and conditions the incoming power supply to more suitable level for the equipment on-site, reducing annual electricity consumption, costs, and carbon emissions.
Powerstar’s voltage regulation solutions provide typical electricity consumption savings of around 8 – 12%, depending on the site. The predicted consumption savings figure proposed by Powerstar following analysis of the site’s data is 100% guaranteed, and the payback period is typically between 2 – 4 years.
Powerstar offers a range of other UK manufactured technologies that can improve energy management, including Powerstar VIRTUE energy storage, which has a range of benefits such as improving energy flexibility and power resilience, and when combined with renewable energy generation can maximise on-site generation further contributing to energy efficiency.
Whilst the proposed tightening of regulations is a significant step up, landlords have sufficient time to implement improvements to meet the conditions for a band ‘B’ rating. Through Powerstar’s technologies energy consumption savings can be achieved in a risk-free manner, with a strong return on investment.
