KONE offers industry-leading elevator, escalator, and automatic building door solutions that help save energy and costs.
KONE´s volume elevators, launched in 2012, is over 70 per cent more energy efficient than KONE´s previous industry-leading elevator platform from 2008. Already in 2010, KONE reached its ambitious target to cut the energy consumption of its new elevators by 50 per cent. This was achieved by using eco-efficient hoisting systems, regenerative drives, LED lights, and standby solutions.
Furthermore, KONE´s volume elevators received an A-class energy rating according to the VDI 4707 guideline as the first company in the elevator industry.
