Elevator Energy Efficiency Assessment

Elevator Energy Efficiency Assessment

Optimizing elevator power consumption with energy efficiency assessments

Improving the energy efficiency of your lifts and elevators is not only an important step toward building a greener future, it’s also a way to ensure long-term savings throughout the machines’ lifetime.

Our elevator energy efficiency assessment services are valuable tools to identify areas of energy performance improvement and opportunities for potential power savings and costs. We also issue individual elevator energy efficiency certificates in compliance with the German standard VDI 4707 part 1.

You can rely on our team of experts to provide professional consultation and one-stop services. Architects, builders and building owners, elevator manufacturers and operators all turn to us for questions concerning energy efficiency and vertical transport.

We welcome the chance to help improve your environmental profile and reduce energy costs. Get in touch with us today and follow the path to greener elevators!

Reap the benefits of green elevators

Assessing the energy efficiency of the elevators you produce, install, own and operate may seem like a minor consideration, as vertical transport only accounts for between 3 and 8% of a building’s overall energy consumption. However, given the long life cycle of lifts and elevators, having them evaluated for efficiency can translate to streamlined processes and long-term cost reduction. Our analysis can help you detect potential energy-saving measures and optimize the cost and energy performance of elevator operations. We can also provide you with a reference for buildings rented or sold—similar to the German Energy Passport—or issue a certificate of compliance for VDI 4704 part 1.

Beyond questions of cost, our elevator energy efficiency assessments contribute to sustainability and the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, which in turn enhances your reputation as a responsible organization. Our experts offer consultation and training to raise awareness of eco-design, enabling you to demonstrate your commitment to the environment and society.
