Leading developer of energy saving products, VPhase, has achieved CE Certification for its new VX1 Smart Voltage Management device, which is set to enhance energy efficiency in homes and SMEs as well as cut electricity bills, typically by 10 per cent or more.

The CE Certification indicates that the VX1 product can now be legally placed on the market in the EU and that it complies with the relevant requirements of the European health, safety and environmental protection legislation.

VPhase CEO, Dr. Lee Juby comments: "This is a major milestone for us at VPhase and we’re extremely excited to have the green light to sell the VX1 to consumers. Although this technology has been established amongst large commercial energy users for some time, it has never been viable in domestic or small commercial premises until now. The VX1 allows Smart Voltage Management to be cost effectively introduced into the home and we expect it will play a key role for all homes in the future, delivering significant reductions to electricity costs, energy wasting and carbon emissions."

VPhase is already working with two major UK utilities, Scottish & Southern Energy and British Gas, in preparation for what it anticipates will be a high demand from UK customers for the Smart Voltage Management technology.

Tests have shown that the VX1 reduces the energy consumption of many household appliances by anything up to 20 per cent, which directly translates into an electricity cost saving as well as a reduction in carbon emissions. A typical house with gas heating could reduce the electricity consumption of the whole house by 10 per cent using the VX1.

The VX1 is expected to retail between £200 and £250. The costs of installation and the typical payback periods of between 3 and 5 years are similar to the upgrading of roof insulation from 50mm to 270mm.
