Voltage optimisation

Is voltage optimisation right for your business?

Voltage optimisation is a relatively new solution for Australian businesses to better manage both energy use and equipment life. The technology works by adjusting voltage supplied to a site, which can better meet the requirements of certain equipment and lights. This can result in improved equipment life and reduced energy use.

Its effectiveness, however, can vary widely depending on a site’s voltage supply and its equipment.

The potential benefits

For sites where voltage supply is higher than required and a large proportion of equipment is considered sensitive to changes in voltage, energy savings of up to 12 per cent or more are possible.

Other benefits of voltage optimisation can include:

  • an overall increase in the lifespan of voltage sensitive electrical equipment
  • potential reductions in maintenance frequency
  • improvement in overall site power quality (depending on the type of voltage optimisation technology used).

See our factsheet for a simple summary of the technology:
