powerPerfector helps Environment Agency

Installing voltage management technology is saving the Environment Agency more than £30,000 a year in energy spend, according to newly released data.

Following trials of electricity 'supply' management solutions, the government agency has begun to roll out powerPerfector's voltage power optimisation (VPO) across its portfolio of 35 sites.

VPO technology gives energy, cost and carbon savings by efficiently optimising a site's supply voltage. By optimising the voltage, electrical equipment runs more efficiently and consumes less energy.

The savings are based on just the first six installations. Once the rollout is completed it is anticipated that the Agency will reduce its annual energy spend by around £75,000 and cut its carbon footprint by over 500,000 kg carbon dioxide.

Julian Feasby, head of internal environmental management at the Environment Agency, said: "We are delighted with the increased energy security as well as the financial and carbon savings we are seeing from the roll out of VPO across our estate. The technology has proved robust and reliable."

Angus Robertson, CEO of powerPerfector, said: "The Environment Agency is synonymous with environmental protection and, as managers of the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, the spotlight is on them to implement energy efficiency best practice."

"Picking the right supplier is vital. Installations on a building's incoming power supply hold far more risk than demand side installations like low energy lights or variable speed drives. If the supply goes down tens of thousands of pounds can be lost and the health and safety risks escalate dramatically. Our 100 per cent reliability record is reassuring for our clients."
