Piller UPS efficiency credentials rewarded with international Energy Star certification

Piller, the leading global supplier of uninterruptible power supply systems, has earned international Energy Star certification for its products in recognition of its commitment to the pursuit of improved levels of energy efficiency.

Energy Star, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) voluntary program, recognized throughout the world as a benchmark, has the avowed aims of reducing energy consumption, improving energy security and reducing pollution through the voluntary labelling of products and buildings that meet the highest energy standards.

As well as enabling Piller customers to showcase their green credentials, Energy Star accreditation provides assurance that the products they are using are UPS with the highest efficiencies, approved not only by the manufacturer but also by an internationally recognized, independent body. By using one of the most efficient UPS on the market, customers can also be sure that their systems are delivering maximum cost and energy savings.

Commenting on the Energy Star certification, Armin Klauenberg, Head of Piller Engineering Germany, said: “Underlining its commitment to greater levels of energy efficiency, Piller now has three power classes of UBT+ and UBTD+ Energy Star certified, including all related units of the 400V 50Hz and 480V 60Hz equipped with batteries, flywheels and diesel engines.” In 2013, Piller participated in creating the Energy Star standards for all UPS systems.
