It increases energy efficiency efforts by saving on energy losses and reducing CO2 waste. Whilst also decreasing total ownership costs over the 25-30 years in service.
The 2021 Tier 2 EU Ecodesign Regulation 548/2014 tightens the requirements for load losses on energy-related products. It is in place to improve energy efficiency, environmental compatibility, and reduce CO2 emissions.
The Bowers Energy Saving Transformer losses are far lower than the Tier 2 regulations require.
We can achieve these reduced losses by using an Amorphous Core. This would be instead of our standard distribution transformers which use Cold Rolled Grain Oriented Steel (CRGO) cores. The Amorphous material has different properties to CRGO such as atomic structure, electrical resistance, and sheet thickness. These factors impact the transformer losses which are reduced massively when using an Amorphous Core.
If you need Bowers to deliver your B.E.S.T unit, we will offset the carbon through tree planting initiatives.
A hiab delivering a Bowers Energy Saving Transformer produces roughly 30kg of CO2 per 20 miles driven. Over 20 years the average tree absorbs 10kg of CO2 per year (totalling approximately 200kg of CO2). The map shows roughly a guide of how many trees will get planted based on the delivery distance from our HQ in Heanor, Derbyshire.
