ENERGY-saving expert EMSc is celebrating a winning full house after being awarded every contract it tendered for in February.

The Rotherham-based company behind the innovative Powerstar Voltage Optimisation system clinched contracts to install more than 110 units for customers, including local and national government, the public services, retail, education and manufacturing.

EMSc’s managing director Dr. Alex Mardapittas said: “February 2011 has been one of our best months to date.

“Not only have we been successful in securing all the work we tendered for but Powerstar has become the market-leading solution in the UK and worldwide.”

EMSc saves companies money by matching the voltage supplied to the optimum voltage for the equipment it is powering.

Modern electrical equipment is designed to work on 220 volts, however, some commercial and domestic premises could be getting as much as 250 volts. Typically, that means any equipment runs hotter than it should.

Running hotter inevitably shortens a piece of equipment’s life, whether it is in a factory or a washing machine in the home, some hi-tech electronic equipment or a domestic light bulb.

It also means the user’s electricity bill will be higher than it need be and electricity generators are being asked to produce more than is technically needed.

Meanwhile, producing more power increases the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Each commercial Powerstar system is entirely manufactured in the UK and engineered to meet the customer’s specific requirements.

Sheffield Road-based EMSc has also launched a company called VO4HOME that supplies voltage optimisation equipment that helps domestic consumers cut their electricity bills and ensure their appliances last longer.

VO4HOME says its technology will reduce electricity consumption by at least 10 per cent and reduce a household’s carbon footprint of by between 330 and 500lbs per year.
