Eco-efficiency through modernization

Eco-efficiency through modernization

With time, an elevators or escalators performance can decline and with it, the building’s value. Elevator and escalator modernization provides up to 70% energy savings potential.

The KONE Care for Life™ service provides a comprehensive elevator analysis of many different aspects, including the energy efficiency of the equipment. The assessment helps determine what parts of the equipment to modernize.

Based on the assessment of the equipment the right modernization solution can be selected from KONE’s broad portfolio of elevator modernization solutions, ranging from retrofitted LED lights to a completely new elevator equipped with energy regeneration technology.

Escalators can be modernized with the innovative KONE EcoMod™ solution that enables modernization without removing the existing truss - saving material, time, and costs. Read more about KONE EcoMod.

KONE has been surveying old elevator systems to demonstrate the safety and performance benefits of modernizing their equipment for many years.

Because energy efficiency was frequently highlighted as an issue in these surveys, we decided to include an energy efficiency assessment in all our Care for Life assessments in order to demonstrate the energy and cost savings that customers could realize by modernizing their equipment.”
