Buildings account for 40% of the world’s energy consumption. Elevators and escalators account for 2–10% of a building’s energy consumption. By selecting the right type of elevator, escalator or automatic building door there is a huge potential for energy savings!
KONE has set itself the target to further cut the energy consumption of its volume elevators by a further 15% during 2011 to 2013. The energy consumption of volume escalators will be reduced by 30% by 2013.
