Energising businesses at Warwick University
Over thirty businesses from a range of industries including manufacturing, medical, healthcare, education, retail and utilities attended a successful seminar held at Warwick University on 8th November 2012.
The seminar, which was jointly coordinated by EMSc (UK) Ltd and Warwick University, who through the Science City Research Alliance umbrella, used the event to show local business how Science City plans to use and promote science and technology to improve prosperity and quality of life.
EMSc (UK) Ltd, the developer of the Star® range of energy saving products, showcased the company’s market leading voltage optimisation solution, Powerstar. The product, which is entirely manufactured in the UK, can assist businesses in reducing their energy consumption and carbon footprint.
Managing director of EMSc, Dr Alex Mardapittas, who presented at the event commented: “It was exciting to see so many people interested in such an important topic, particularly as they were from a variety of sectors. A need to use ethical business practices is becoming an imperative for companies. By reducing energy consumption a business can not only save money and reduce CO2 emissions but enhance its social responsibilities as well.”
EMSc also recently successfully launched Powerstar HV MAX, a low-loss amorphous core HV transformer that allows for 11,000V input and electronically regulated 380v (or user regulated) output. The new innovative product will allow companies to save costs and reduce carbon emissions in both the High Voltage as well as the Low Voltage areas.
Other presentations at the event included Dr Andrew Todd from the University of Warwick and the Science City Research Alliance. He is quoted as saying “It was a great event for understanding the energy challenges which businesses are facing and I think the seminar gave an interesting range of perspectives from EMSc, Greenwatt Technologies and the University on how we can address some of these issues. There was a real buzz in the room as we started to look at the opportunities for companies”. The research into science led technology is a growing area, as people grow more aware of climate change and the things they can do to reduce it.
Presentations were also given by Diane Park and Dr Sam Hardy both from the University of Warwick presented on knowledge transfer and the funding opportunities available to work with the university. In addition, Mike Woollacott from Greenwatt Technology talked about preparing companies for a low carbon future.
