News: Powerstar seminar for local authorities


Rotherham manufacturers EMSc (UK) Limited are hosting a seminar next month to show local councils and authorities how voltage optimisation can cut their energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint.

The energy consultancy produces Powerstar, the only voltage optimisation system wholly designed and manufactured in the UK which works by reducing the the voltage supplied by the National Grid.

Voltage optimisation is a cost efficient way to control a buildings incoming voltage in order to maximise energy savings. Powerstar can save up to 26.1% of total electricity consumption and related CO2 emissions, all without compromising the supply to electrical equipment.

Bolsover District Council is to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 51 tonnes and save an estimated £9,700 in electricity costs per annum following the installation of two Powerstar voltage optimisation systems.

Dr Alex Mardapittas, Powerstar designer and managing director of EMSc, said: "Councils are under pressure to spend less and at the same time put in place measures to operate in a more environmentally friendly way.

"We offer a "win, win" solution in Powerstar that enables a council to cut both electricity costs and carbon emissions. It is greatly encouraging to me that councils are embracing our voltage optimisation technology and taking a lead that I hope local businesses and organisations will follow."

The event takes place at The Source, Sheffield on October 28.
