Voltage Power Optimisation (VPO) achieves between 10-20% savings in energy/ costs/ consumption/ carbon emissions.
VPO takes advantage of the fact that your building's supply voltage is in 90% of cases substantially higher than is the optimum for all the equipment that is on site.
Physics dictates that if you reduce voltage, and at the same time improve the balance of the phase supply to motors, as well as suppress some of the harmonics in circuit, you will produce substantial power savings and therefore kWh consumption.
This will also extend the operating life of equipment designed to run at lower voltages.
Simple voltage reduction is not enough to achieve meaningful results and in some cases auto transformers are being marketed under the banner of "optimisation" when they do no such thing.
The technology is installed between the meter/breaker on the incoming supply and before the distribution board or bus bar and so optimises supply to the whole building and produces savings on the whole building.
Results have shown savings of between 10% and 20% at all sites where the technology is installed and perhaps most importantly it requires no maintenance and has a life expectancy of over 30 years.
