In Australia the company has set up a joint venture with Perth based Cockburn Electrical and in the UAE it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Wildcatos Oil services. The company carried out in-depth demographic and market research to identify countries in which to market Powerstar.
Like the UK, there is a growing demand in both Australia and the UAE not only for a ‘greener’ approach towards energy consumption, to overcome concerns about the impact on the environment, but also from businesses that are looking to find ways of reducing their costs through a more efficient use of the power they have to buy from energy providers.
In line with the success the company has been experiencing in the UK, it has also seen sales for Powerstar grow in markets across Europe. To meet demand in Cyprus, for example, the company has had to employ a new business development manager.
To further highlight the growing international interest in Powerstar Dr. Alex Mardapittas, designer and managing director of EMSc, recently appeared on national television in South Africa, on CNBC’s Powerlunch, to talk about Powerstar. He was also invited to be a guest speaker at the South African Energy Efficiency Convention.
Dr. Mardapittas commented;
“As international interest in Powerstar increases, we will continue to identify and implement the most appropriate distribution strategy for each market. In Australia and the UAE our partners have long established businesses and know their respective markets very well.”
Powerstar is the most efficient voltage optimisation system in the world and can save up to 26.1% of total electricity consumption and related CO² emissions, all without compromising the supply to electrical equipment. The payback period is typically between 0.8 and 2.5 years.
Powerstar provides an instant solution to businesses and organisations, enabling them to save money by reducing energy consumption, at the same time cutting carbon emissions.
Can save up to 26.1% of electricity consumption.
Is fully designed and manufactured in the UK. All Powerstar components, including even minor items such as the paint, are sourced from UK manufacturers. The Powerstar design and any associated software are designed by EMSc UK Limited.
Requires no maintenance and has a 15 year warranty.
Is an approved energy savings system and may qualify for an interest-free Energy Efficiency Loan from the Carbon Trust.
Comes with guaranteed savings.
Will improve the life expectancy of electrical equipment.
Will improve the power quality (reduce harmonics and improve the power factor).
Has the highest efficiency and provides better savings than any other voltage optimisation system sold in the UK. This has been proven in independent tests (on the same load and same voltage reduction), head to head with similar competitive systems.
In these tests Powerstar achieved:
- Significantly higher energy savings (up to 13% more)
- Reduced harmonics by 88% more than competitive systems
- Running significantly cooler than competitive systems. (While Powerstar operated at normal ambient temperatures, competitive systems were operating at nearly 70°C).
The EMS team has over 150 years combined experience in designing and manufacturing special transformers and the Powerstar design is a direct result of this experience.
