7 ENERGY EFFICIENCY Based on a 630 kg elevator at 1 m/s with 12 m travel height and usage category 1 synergy Efficient, throughout the entire product life cycle. Energy efficiency Measurements taken on a standard synergy configuration with sleep mode achieve the highest energyefficiency rating Class A according to ISO 25745-2. The low energy consumption reduces the CO2 footprint of the elevator during operation and consequently its share of the overall energy consumption of a building. This has also been proven by synergy’s life cycle assessment. Sustainability is part of our corporate strategy. It involves the holistic improvement of our products and processes to help you reduce the environmental footprint of your buildings and qualify for LEED® and BREEAM® certification by incorporating green features in our elevators. Product life cycle assessment (LCA): carried out via continuous improvements focused on the materials used, manufacturing and production processes, and operation. In this way, we minimise the environmental impact of our products. Based on the carbon footprint of an ISO 14044 compliant LCA of a 630 kg elevator at 1 m/s with 5 stops, 25 years lifetime and sleep mode option with usage category 2 according to ISO 25745-2. 63 28 9 Materials production (%) Operation (%) Others (%) 45%savings by adding sleep mode option Low energy consumption thanks to the highly efficient gearless machine with no contaminant lubricants. Standby mode: cabin lighting comes with automatic switch-off as standard. Sleep mode (optional): The electronic components are turned off when the elevator is in sleep mode and are instantly activated when the elevator is called. LED lighting is standard for all lighting devices in shaft, cabin (ceilings, push- buttons, etc.) and landings. LED lighting can last 10 times longer and is up to 80%more energy efficient than halogen lighting. Regenerative drive: the optional regenerative drive is a smart system that generates electricity when the cabin has a full load going down and is empty going up. The power generated in both situations is then captured and fed into the grid.
