Regenerative Braking And Energy Savings

Regenerative braking technology has been around for a while, but capturing the heat from braking efficiently and re-using that to get a net saving of energy has been difficult to achieve.

Now some vehicles are starting to use regenerative braking such as some latest train models in order to use less energy overall, which is a good thing.

It turns out that the process of regenerative braking can be applied to things other than standard vehicles, too.

For instance, the humble lift can also use this braking and reduce their energy usage (and bills) in the process!

By using a clever combination of motors rather than standard brake pads to stop, energy bills can be slashed, and around 20% of the energy requirements can be recouped.

Infact it could be that the lifts of the future use motors rather than cables and gears.
