Q: What do you see as the growth areas in renewables?
The VO market has huge potential because it’s a simple, cost-effective way of reducing energy consumption and lowering CO2 emissions, with a fast payback time. We estimate 400,000 British businesses would benefit from VO and believe our technology is so advanced that in 90 per cent of cases the iVolt will save more money than other systems.
Q: How is your company cutting its carbon footprint?
We’re in the business of energy-saving technology so naturally it’s important that our production processes have minimal environmental impact. Transformers and associated components are shipped by sea to our HQ near Heathrow in recyclable containers. The manufacturing teams follow Sollatek environmental policy standards to minimise waste and our testing procedures involve testing the units on full voltage and full current independently, which minimises energy use.
