SUSTAINABILITY AS A SERVICE
Energy Drive partners with companies from a range of major industries to actualise their energy-related sustainability goals. Using variable speed drives to reduce our clients’ energy consumption and achieve more efficient operations, we also lower energy-related business costs. We achieve this by overcoming the key hurdles to energy optimisation by taking on the risk and staying invested with our clients for the long term. By purchasing the required equipment, installing it, and ensuring that it runs effectively for as long as it’s on a client’s site, we have founded an innovative, fully-engineered, turnkey sustainability solution executed via a zero-capex performance contract.
THE THREE KEY HURDLES TO ENERGY OPTIMISATION
Our turnkey energy-saving solution includes design, project management, installation and maintenance all delivered via a zero-capex performance contract, meaning you can continue to focus on your business operations while we finance and execute the project.
Every system is installed with a fully motorised bypass, meaning that if a VSD were to fail the electrical supply system is reconfigured, quickly allowing the motor to revert to the original electrical supply and control system. Once the fault has been rectified, the system can be changed back to VSD control. In most cases, the bypass system can happen quickly enough to avoid production down time.
Each Energy Drive system is monitored for electrical consumption, and system health and performance recorded via a sealed Elster meter. The energy consumption data is sent to an independent third party, meaning the integrity of the data is of the highest standard. This information is available to clients via an access-controlled web page, while the Energy Drive control centre can analyse the data and generate any alerts, ensuring Energy Drive is always aware of the health of every system in the field.
