Reduce lift energy consumption

If you want to save on your community of owners' electricity bill, it is important to take into account that lifts (along with boilers) are one of the highest-energy consuming elements, but the good news is that we can improve its efficiency and as a result spend less. We'll tell you how, because a lift with lower energy consumption is possible!

Reduce energy consumption

The energy consumption of lifts represents a large percentage of building/ household expenses. This along with boiler and gas consumption are the largest contributors to energy bills. Fortunately, an efficient installation and proper use in conjunction with the correct systems and elements can significantly reduce a lifts energy consumption. At ILS we advise you to choose efficient LED lighting options which consume 75% less energy and have a longer life span. In addition you can reduce your lifts energy consumption by utilizing a “Stand By” mode for your main components when the lift is not in use i.e. at night time. Having a gearless machine with variable magnets and a variable frequency drive along with automatic lubricators are just some of the smart energy saving solutions we can advise you on. 


Energy efficient lifts with Gearless machine with permanent magnets

Less consumption and less deterioration. The compact and highly durable design of these systems provide them a high level of energy efficiency.
In addition, there is a bonus in sustainability: it does not use any lubrication to work, which is why (compared to conventional systems) it is especially environmentally friendly


Variable frequency drive

This element modifies the current received by the lift with the aim of optimising it, achieving electricity consumption reductions that can reach up to 25% (in two-speed lifts) and improving travel comfort


Automatic lubricator

This lubrication system has a refillable tank that constantly lubricates the cabin roller guides, reducing friction and achieving greater energy savings. As easy as that!
In addition: you will achieve a quieter lift and extend the service life of the roller guides


Stand-by system

How many times have you heard ""turn off the light when you leave""?
Well, we apply the same logic to your lift. If the lift is not called within a preset time (configurable according to your needs), the lights and ventilation system will be disconnected, which can reduce the cabin light's energy consumption up to 80%.


LED lights

Just like inside your home, replacing cabin lights with LED lights (low consumption) will help you save on the electricity bill


Energy regeneration systems

We can incorporate a storage system that stores the energy generated by the lift's motor when it goes down loaded or up empty. This energy stored in batteries will supply the lift in other journeys.


ION SOLAR: The most sustainable lift choice

The best option to reduce energy consumption and the environmental impact of your elevator is to replace your current equipment with ION Solar, an elevator that runs 100% on renewable energy from solar panels.
