Today, with various advanced technologies, energy consumption has increased drastically and this has led to increase in CO2 emission that is responsible for global warming. Energy-saving equipment is the need of the day. Take the case of elevators. Traditional elevators consume around 4% of the electricity in buildings. It is estimated that buildings account for 40% of global energy consumption. The increasing costs of energy and the need for environment protection call for a rethinking regarding the conception, construction and renovation of buildings.
Using energy-efficient elevators and other such equipment can help save a considerable amount of energy. Energy efficient elevators have advanced features like sensors, controllers, drivers and motors that help in reducing the consumption of energy. They also lessen the waiting time of passengers. Conventional type of elevators consume higher amount of energy for their functioning whereas the new innovative, energy efficient elevators are eco-friendly and consume very less energy. Leading elevator manufacturers have developed elevators that are compact, energy saving and also generate electricity in some cases using regenerative braking to support system. Advanced technology in elevators is expected to improve the growth of energy efficient elevators in the market. This will also have a positive impact on the installation of energy efficient lifts. European Lift Association statistics show that every year 115 lifts are being installed in Europe out of which a major share is held by residential buildings with approximately 64% of the market share that is followed by 14% in office infrastructures.
Energy efficient elevators have advanced features and digital security systems such as biometrics, touch screen, destination dispatching, and access control system. These technological advanced features will make energy efficient elevators more upgraded and superior to conventional elevators.
