  EMSc (UK) Ltd, manufacturer of the Star® range of energy saving solutions, is celebrating the successful installation of its award-winning Powerstar voltage optimisation unit at St Hild’s Church of England School, a specialist engineering college in Hartlepool. The installation will see the school save £4,795 per annum in electricity costs while also substantially reducing CO2 emissions.  

Powerstar was installed after Year 8 students at St Hild’s identified the need to effectively reduce the energy output of the school in order to reduce its overall environmental impact and carbon footprint and, in addition to lowering energy consumption by 9.2%, the installation will reduce annual CO2 emissions by 27.1 tonnes, which will decrease the school’s CRC tax payments by £325 per year.  

Commenting on the installation Dr Alex Mardapittas, EMSc (UK) Ltd managing director and designer of Powerstar said: “As a school dedicated to engineering, St Hild’s was looking for a true engineering solution that would deliver exceptional results. With unrivalled results in energy savings and 100% reliability in over 4500 installations, Powerstar fitted the bill.”  

Colin Reid, St Hild’s Head Teacher said: “As a Church of England school with a strong commitment to the environment and an engineering specialism, St Hild’s prides itself on creating opportunities to bring these areas together. Powerstar has allowed us to do that by providing the most up to date engineering technology specifically designed to reduce carbon emissions to help make our school more energy efficient. The savings are immediately evident and will allow us to invest more of our money into the learning and progress of our students.”  

EMSc (UK) Ltd has been manufacturing the market leading voltage optimisation solution Powerstar – a unique triple wound system with a patented design that can help realise energy consumption savings of 12-15% – at its headquarters in Yorkshire for over a decade. At a time when Japanese and Chinese electronic and engineered solutions continue to dominate the market, the company is proud to say that its research, development, sourcing and manufacturing is all done in the UK.  

The company is accredited with the Made in Sheffield accolade in acknowledgement of the quality of its manufacturing process, its expansion into international markets, and the overall success of Powerstar, which is exported worldwide to countries including Cyprus, Sri Lanka, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Malta and South Africa.
