A Unique Zero Capex Energy Reduction Solution for pump and fan motors.
ENERGY SAVINGS TO DATE
Equivalent to Powering
What does EDS offer
A Zero Capex and Zero Maintenance Variable Speed Drive (VSD) based
Guaranteed Net Rand Savings for each system
Latest VSD technology for motors on Fan and Pumps, both Low and Medium Voltage
Our turnkey solution overcomes four key challenges
EnergyDrive has a Zero CAPEX and Zero Maintenance business model. We invest CAPEX into your business to install an EnergyDrive system and also maintain the system at our cost. EnergyDrive also guarantees a Net Rand Saving per annum for each system installed. This is the minimum saving EnergyDrive will deliver and is net of all fees.
Measurement and Verification
EnergyDrive use a robust and accurate online reporting system, complying with current M&V standards.EnergyDrive uses a 24/7 online reporting system complying with stringent M&V standards. You can view system performance at any time.
EnergyDrive systems are installed in parallel to existing control systems, with 100% utility availability designed into the system. This is achieved via a Comprehensive Mitigation System (CMS) with Variable Speed Drive (VSD) cell bypass. CMS can be described as a series of safe guards insuring up time to the plant in case of the unlikely event of system failure.
EnergyDrive provides the resources for each project. We work in close collaboration with your plant engineers to design, install and maintain each system.
Measurement and Verification Automated Meter Reading
A baseline is calculated in close collaboration with the client using historic plant data and adhering to the relevant National Standards. Electrical meters are installed in each system, with on-line live reporting that is freely accessed by our clients. Our staff constantly monitor the performance of each system using multiple parameters to ensure maximum uptime and achievement of the savings targets.
The capturing and monitoring process includes the following:
Provide complete data escrow to our Clients.
Early Warning System
Provide early warning of systems running out of spec.
Provide realtime reporting and visibility to our clients via the web.

About EnergyDrive Systems
EnergyDrive Systems was conceived in 2010 and launched in January 2011. EnergyDrive followed the typical Start-Up path of being bootstrapped then privately funded through until 2015, when we decided to pursue formal financing relationships.
From a handful of staff in 2011, EnergyDrive now employees over 30 people internationally. We have managed to achieve high leverage of our human capital by utilizing local expertise as much as possible. This has the added benefit of our clients working with their existing approved electrical subcontractors during our installations.
Our solutions have also evolved over our short history. In the first 3 years we deliberately focused on Low Voltage applications whilst we developed our footprint in the Energy Efficiency space. In early 2014, with the technological solution proven, we entered the Medium Voltage and High Voltage arena.
