Methodology of Energy Measurement and Estimation of Annual Energy Consumption of Lifts (Elevators), Escalators and Moving Walks

Share this Post:
About one third of the final energy consumption in the Community is used in the tertiary and residential sector, mostly in buildings. Due to the increased comfort requirements, energy consumption in buildings recently experienced a significant increase, being one of the leading reasons for a growing amount of CO2 emissions. High untapped saving potentials exist with respect to energy-efficient equipment, investment decisions and behavioral approaches, in these sectors. Under the european project E4 focusing on the improvement of the energy performance of elevators and escalators, an Excel tool for energy Consumption of Lift was developped.
