Eco-efficiency through modernization

With time, an elevators or escalators performance can decline and with it, the building’s value. Elevator and escalator modernization provides up to 70% energy savings potential.

The KONE Care for Life™ service provides a comprehensive elevator analysis of many different aspects, including the energy efficiency of the equipment. The assessment helps determine what parts of the equipment to modernize.

Based on the assessment of the equipment the right modernization solution can be selected from KONE’s broad portfolio of elevator modernization solutions, ranging from retrofitted LED lights to a completely new elevator equipped with energy regeneration technology.
