With the rapid development of economy, elevator, as a vertical means of transportation, has become more and more popular in high-rise and super high-rise buildings. However, the power consumption of elevators also increases with the increase of the number of elevators. Therefore, energy-saving elevators will become the future development direction of the industry.
At the same time of its rapid development, IFE Elevator has always spared no effort to carry out technical innovation and has made good achievements in the field of energy conservation and consumption reduction. With the self-developed "energy feedback regeneration technology", the transformation from "energy saving" to "energy generation" has been realized. The application of this technology in elevator products has been sought after by overseas developed countries and regions. Among them, Singapore has become the model of a green city country in the world with efficient environmental policies, and is known as "the greenest city in Asia". Therefore, among the 6500 elevators delivered and implemented in the HDB project cooperated with the Singapore Housing Development Authority, energy feedback and upgrading technology have been adopted, It can be said that this technology is gradually becoming the standard equipment for export overseas, and is included in the list of passenger elevators purchase needs by overseas customers.
The energy feedback device can achieve remarkable energy-saving effect without changing the elevator operation control rules and traction motor power. How does it do that?
To put it simply, the energy feedback device installed on the ordinary elevator can convert the kinetic energy and potential energy generated when the elevator is running into electric energy, which can be delivered to the electric power supply to other nearby electric equipment. Once the phenomenon that "the potential energy of elevators in the past has been wasted" has been changed, the current technology can enable this potential energy to return to the grid and become electric energy, that is, "power generation".
As early as many years ago, IFE Elevator began to layout green energy efficiency business and research "energy feedback regeneration technology". After years of tireless exploration and research by technicians, this technology was finally successfully developed and enabled to start a new era of energy conservation in elevator products.
The successful application of this technology can not only effectively reduce the heat and temperature of the machine room, but also improve the service life of the elevator equipment. Most traditional elevators use the energy consumption braking mode, that is, the external braking resistor consumes the electric energy, which will make the braking resistor quickly rise in temperature, smoke or even redden, thus causing the ambient temperature of the machine room to rise, which will affect the normal operation of other equipment in the machine room for a long time. However, elevators equipped with a quick "energy feedback device" can avoid this situation.
In addition, elevators equipped with this technology will also produce huge economic and environmental benefits. Elevators, which are also called "the two big power tigers of public buildings" with air conditioners, are large consumers of electricity. According to statistics, in 2021, China will have more than 8.447 million elevators, and its annual cumulative power consumption is equivalent to the total power generation of a Daya Bay Nuclear Power Station. If all energy-saving elevators can be used nationwide, it will be equivalent to building an additional nuclear power station.
Therefore, the energy feedback device developed and produced by IFE Elevator not only conforms to the development strategy of energy conservation and emission reduction in China, but also has good social effects and huge economic benefits.
IFE has been deeply involved in the elevator field for 35 years. Every year, it has continuously increased its innovation investment in R&D, only to bring the most cutting-edge technology and processes that are most in line with the development strategy of the times to products. The enabling application of "energy feedback regeneration technology" in elevators is the best example of practice. Thanks to the support of this technology, the types of elevators and escalators launched by Xieyi have the advantages of longer service life and lower energy consumption, which are favored and recognized by customers at home and abroad. They have been successfully sold to Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Russia, the Middle East, India, South Africa, and other countries and regions in the past few decades.
In the future, IFE Elevator will take green technology, energy conservation and emission reduction as the development direction of the industry, increase investment in the research and development of green elevator products, continuously introduce new products with lower noise, longer life, more energy conservation and environmental protection, and contribute to the country's goal of "carbon peak by 2030, carbon neutral by 2060" as scheduled.
