Energy Star Partnership



partner logo 100Through the Energy Star Partnership program, Alpha Energy commits to help clients improve their energy performance. Clients include existing commercial buildings market, new construction commercial markets as well as industrial markets.

 


Energy Star Overview

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched ENERGY STAR in 1992 as a voluntary labeling program designed to identify and promote energy-efficient products to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Since that time, the EPA has added many new services and offerings. Because a strategic approach to energy management can produce twice the savings - for the bottom line and the environment - as typical approaches, EPA's ENERGY STAR partnership offers a proven energy management strategy that helps in measuring current energy performance, setting goals, tracking savings, and rewarding improvements.

PA provides an innovative energy performance rating system, which businesses have already used for more than 21,000 buildings across the country. EPA also recognizes top performing buildings with the ENERGY STAR label.

Market Overview


Alpha Technologies Ltd's core target markets include the Telecom, Traffic, Security, Renewable Energy and Smart Grid sectors. In addition, across the Alpha Group, the broadband cable sector remains a significant focal point.

 

In the Telecom sector, Alpha's* DC solutions have long been the standard for reliability and efficiency, built on superior communications and control functionality inherent in its Cordex™ family of controllers. Today, much of Alpha's ongoing research and development investments are directed at developing the next generation of DC power solutions. These products will not only continue to provide Alpha's class-leading reliability, but also help drive OPEX savings by way of greater efficiency and the innovative use of renewable energy technology.

 

In the emerging Traffic market, where fewer than 10% of North American intersections are backed up, Alpha is amongst the market leaders providing back up power and power  conditioning for traffic lights, controllers and highway signage. To date, over half of the states in America have standardized on Alpha UPS's for these applications, resulting in Alpha systems already backing up over 15,000 intersections.

 

In the Security sector, there is a growing recognition that without effective backup power most security systems are fundamentally flawed. In other words, No Power = No Security. Alpha has been at the forefront of increasing this awareness, with innovative solutions for almost every type of critical indoor and outdoor security application.

 

Renewable Energy solutions are rapidly gaining favor due to their versatility; improving economics and positive impact on the environment. Alpha not only offers a variety of renewable solutions, but also brings its considerable experience in backing up critical systems to the emerging Renewable Energy industry as they too need 7x24x365 power assurance.

 

The Smart Grid sector is beginning to take shape and Alpha is well positioned to address the emerging powering requirements for the Smart Grid networks and devices.

 

In all these markets, Alpha's success lies in our ability to deliver total power solutions that solve our customers' unique powering challenges and to provide exceptional customer service and support.
