Green Technology

ENERGY EFFICIENCY is a commitment to us and our obligation towards future generations.

NOVA engineers study and research technological solutions aiming to improve the energy efficiency both of our products and also of our factory.

Energy efficiency starts inside NOVA plants, with the disposal and differentiation of production waste, and continues in the production of LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION lifts with reduced environmental impact.

The NOVA Suite Lift, when equipped with the GEARLESS DRIVE, has minimum consumption (0.55 kW at 230 V ... like a vacuum cleaner!) Thanks to the ERP system which reduces the energy needed when the elevator is in stand-by. The attention to energy saving, environmental compatibility and high energy efficiency is also reflected in the design and implementation of the products: all systems are designed to comply with the GREEN concept established by the European Union, certified in class A according to the directive German VDI 4707.

What is the gearless drive?

The gearless motor, which NOVA can adopts on the lifts, is a smart motor, capable of supplying only the power really needed by the lift according to the feedbacks received during its travel. When the lift runs with no load in its cabin, the motor will supply a small amount of power whereas, when the cabin is fully loaded, the gearless system is able to optimize energy supply according to the load weight.

The ascent will therefore be optimized in real time.

The energy efficiency is not only low consumption but also low waste: our metal structures and doors are designed in order to provide thermal insulation and to reduce as much as possible thermal transmittance between different rooms.

NOVA believes in energy efficiency and for this it thinks, designs and produces its products to minimize consumption and atmospheric pollution.


This is why NOVA Elevators has chosen to install a 100 kW photovoltaic system, which guarantees the production of 70% of the energy requirement of the NOVA plant and has decided to use for the remaining 30% energy produced by Repower AG, produced exclusively from renewable sources.

NOVA also uses innovative high energy yield machinery for the construction of its elevators. The Laser-Cutting machine with Optical Fiber, for example, requires 50% less installed power in kW than similar, more traditional machines.

Your energy-effcient house

The traction Suite homelift gives energy efficiency to all your house. The external accessories can be insulating: the outdoor steel structure is insulated with isolating material or thermal glass, with a thermal transmittance rate till 1.1 W/mqK (in cm).

The thermal glass door grants a high insulation thanks to magnetic seals and double glass.

NOVA for the enviroment

Our care for the environment starts at our production plant:

  • the solar panels of 100KW installed on the plant roof grant about 70% of our daily energy needs and the remaining 30% is taken from sustainable energy resources;
  • the manufacturing machines are brand, innovative and energy-efficient.

* According to the EU Directive 92/75/EC energy consumption labelling scheme.

Suite homelift requires low energy

The traction model with a loading of 300 kg requires only 100Kw/H a year, with a consumption of only 0,55 Kw, the same as a vacuum cleaner. It can be used together with other electronic appliances, i.e. oven or washing machine, without increasing the standard 3 Kw energy.

The gearless motor can be equipped on all Suite homelifts and it can work in relation to the cabin loading, so that if the cabin is empty, the unit requires less energy. The ERP system reduces energy consumption. When the cabin is not riding, Suite switches off the system automatically, exactly as the new car equipped with Start&Stop system.

The energy consumption can be reduced till 70% thanks to this system.

The Eco-Friendly lift

This high energy efficency means a huge reduction of CO2. All Suites are designed and manufactured in respect of the green principles and with Kyoto Protocol (January 2008).
