Power Electronics featured in Ha'aretz

Power Electronics Systems (PES), a leading provider of energy-efficiency solutions, is profiled this week in Ha'aretz. (See here.)

PES has developed a range of products that improve energy-efficiency for lighting, HVAC and electric motor applications. For example, its Lighting Energy Controller (LEC) systems reduce energy consumption from lightbulbs by 20-30% and have been adopted by customers such as IBM, Tesco, and municipal governments throughout Israel.

Founder and Chairman Shimon Limor estimates that if Israel were to adopt his company's technology on a national level, it "could save NIS 2.8 billion in superfluous spending on electricity and reduce air pollution by 2.6 million tons of coal."
