REGENERATIVE ELEVATORS

To meet the challenge on energy savings, lifts are being built to last for a life-cycle extending beyond 20 years time. It incorporates energy-saving solutions that keep the total cost of ownership low while reducing the ecological footprint of the building.

One of the latest technological developments in elevator is the regenerating system, one that focuses on recovering braking energy and converting it into electricity. Therefore, this would save energy and reduce the carbon footprint, and also improve performance, safety and comfort.

       . in lighting the building Produces clean and safe energy that does not damage the network Energy saving: 4000 kWh/year compared to a non-regenerative drive for the above example Carbon footprint reduction: 2000kg CO2/year compared to a nonregenerative drive for the above example.  Cost Saving for Regenerative Lifts Regenerative lifts generally lower overall building operating costs and achieve significant annual savings for building owners year-after-year during the whole life of the lifts.g. traveling distance and system efficiency. the advantages of the application of regenerative lifts have outweighed the disadvantages. The amount of energy savings from regeneration depends on various system parameters and configurations such as car load.    Advantages and Disadvantages of Regenerative Lifts  Notably. Regenerative lifts have the following advantages: Use up to 50% less energy than a traction About 50% of the energy used by the lift can be recovered by their regenerative system Recovers excess braking energy from the elevator and converts it for use e. speed.
