BORRI Ltd range of High Efficiency UPS Systems has qualified to be officially listed on the Energy Technology List (ETL), as part of the Governments Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) Scheme.
The inclusion on to the Energy Technology List follows rigorous selection criteria, with only the products that deliver substantial energy savings qualifying.
The BORRI B9000 250kVA and 300kVA units as well as all products from the flagship B9600 range (from 400kVA to 800kVA) are in select company, amongst the leading ultra high efficiency UPS systems available today. What differentiates BORRI is that all systems are still ‘Transformer’ based offering the highest levels of isolation, filtering and protection whist still delivering high efficiency, with over 95% at full load, with input Power Factor of 0.99 and input Harmonic Distortion (THDi) no greater than 3%.
BORRI’s commitment to driving up power usage effectiveness led to the development of the ECO-UPS Systems and to be officially recognized on the Energy Technology List (ETL) is testament to the hard work and dedication of BORRI’s designers and engineers at BORRI’s own manufacturing plants in Italy.
“As an integral part of all organizations power management strategies, UPS Systems have traditionally wasted 1,000’s of kWh per year due to internal inefficiencies. As power costs rise and organizations are more visibly accountable for their energy use and carbon emissions, BORRI are at the very forefront with our ECO-UPS range, assisting clients to minimize power usage and save money whilst still maintaining a truly resilient and ‘protected’ electrical infrastructure” says Mark Trolley, Sales Director at BORRI Ltd.
Alongside the listing on the ETL and to further demonstrate the commitment to increase power efficiency, BORRI have also launched a “UPS Scrappage Scheme” to incentivise organizations to replace older, less efficient UPS systems with a BORRI ECO-UPS.
The Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme is a key part of the Government’s programme to manage climate change, and is designed to encourage businesses to invest in energy saving equipment.
The scheme provides a tax incentive to businesses that invest in equipment that meets published energy-saving criteria. The Energy Technology List (ETL) details the criteria for each type of technology, and lists those products in each category that meet them. It is managed by the Carbon Trust, on behalf of the Government
Key Features of the ECA scheme
• Open to all businesses that pay UK corporation or income tax, regardless of size, sector or location.
• Provides 100% first-year capital allowances on investments in energy-saving equipment against taxable profits of the period of investment.
• All the products listed on the ETL must meet the energy-saving criteria, published in the ETCL.
• Capital allowances are available for spending “on the provision of” plant and machinery. This can include certain costs arising as a direct result of the installation of qualifying plant and machinery such as; transport of the equipment to the site, and some direct installation costs.
