AC inverter products listed on UK's Energy Technology List
Three of Yaskawa Europe's AC Inverter products were named to the UK's ETL, which gives them official recognition as green products.
Yaskawa Europe AC inverter products: The J1000, V1000 and A1000 with power ratings from 0.2KW to 630KW are now listed on the UK government's Energy Technology List (ETL). This means that they are officially recognized as “green” technology, which are suited to saving energy and reducing carbon emissions. Yaskawa inverter products save energy in applications such as fans, pumps and compressors as well as many others using standard ac motors.
The Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme allows companies to write off the full capital cost of Yaskawa products on the Energy Technology list in the first year instead of the typical seven-year period.
