Summer intern 20 year old Stephen, left us earlier this week to further continue his studies in France.

Stephen study’s at Aberystwyth University has been with us since early June, working within many functions in the business from production to sales and accounts. Stephen has gained real transferable skills during his time with Power Efficient Systems as he assisted with the rebrand to EnergyAce, the implementation of new operating procedures and helped to generate new policies.

Stephen commented “its great to have been involved in so many varied activities, this is my second intern with the company and its grown so much since the last time, hopefully my input has helped with the massive growth phase”

Gary Vizard the Managing Director and integral to the rebrand to EnergyAce commented “Growing a business is very exciting, there is real buzz through the team as the positive changes take effect although this has undoubtedly been so much easier and much more enjoyable through the impact of Stephens vision, application and positivity throughout his internship, we will all miss him”

Good luck Stephen, we know you will smash every challenge put in front of you, Lyon has gained a great asset.

Power Factor Correction is Cool

Uncategorized No Comments

Power Factor Correction may not be the most well-known energy saving technology for 2014 although it is the coolest and here’s the proof.

Power Factor Correction not only removes hidden penalties on electricity bills, reduces capacity and availability charges and reduces energy consumption, it also reduces circuit currents – making everything run cooler with reduced losses in cables and switchgear, this effect also allows for greater efficiency and increases the lifespan of associated switchgear.

The Evidence

Load PF Kva Amps

1000kw @ 0.70pf = 1428kva or 1985A

Install power factor correction and look what happens to the current and kva…

Load PF Kva Amps

1000kw @ 0.99pf = 1010kva or 1404A

A saving of 581A, with reduced heat in cables etc – cool!

Power Factor Correction is effectively the Grandfather of energy efficiency, it has been around almost as long as electricity itself, it is generally described as one of the first simple measures to consider when improving efficiency, its non-disruptive and can last in excess of 20 years.

Other benefits include:

  • Reduced demand charges – kva
  • Removal or reduction in reactive power charges
  • Reduced kW/h losses
  • Reduced carbon emissions and CCL charges
  • Improved utility
  • Fast ROI – typically 1-2 years
