Wilson e2 – Exceeding (2021) specifications today!
The EU Ecodesign Directive for transformers took effect from July 2015 (Tier 1). It requires all transformers placed in the market to comply with strict new design specifications that specifically address transformer losses.
The directive has been devised to eliminate the worst performing transformer models from being installed across the EU and is expected to save in the region of 16TWh per year from 2020 onward.
A second tier of even stricter design specifications is scheduled to come into force from July 2021 (Tier 2). The new legislation will apply throughout Europe.
Our Wilson e2 super low loss amorphous transformers already meet and exceed new Eco Design specifications planned for 2021 and are the most energy efficient transformers available in the UK today.
