Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and a global leader in maximising availability, capacity and efficiency of critical infrastructure, has today announced that its range of Liebert® HPC free cooling chillers has achieved the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) certification for the UK market, with accredited models included on the Government’s Energy Technology List (ETL).

In addition to providing cost savings through reduced energy costs, the Liebert® HPC free cooling chiller range now carries tax-related benefits as a result of the ECA certification. Emerson Network Power’s UK customers purchasing equipment from the specified range are eligible to claim a 100 percent first year capital allowance against taxable profits for the period of investments. This means those businesses can write off the capital costs of purchasing the Liebert HPC free cooling chiller range against their taxable profits.

“We are proud to announce that our Liebert HPC free cooling chillers comply with the rigorous standards set by the ECA scheme, emphasising our full commitment to driving sustainable business,” comments Stefano Mozzato, precision cooling marketing director EMEA, Emerson Network Power. “There are clear financial benefits of the certification to our customers, from the 100 percent first year capital allowance to improved cash flow and a reduction in Climate Change Levy or CRC payments.

“In addition, the use of energy efficient technology in a data centre infrastructure is an increasingly important competitive differentiator. Many businesses now have CSR directives which encompass not only their own operations, but also extend to their suppliers. By choosing our Liebert HPC free cooling products, UK businesses benefit from a widely recognised certification which helps prove their commitment to a more sustainable way of working.”

In order to be eligible for the accreditation, the Liebert HPC free cooling chiller range had to comply with strict criteria set out by the ECA and pass stringent performance tests, confirming that they match specific energy saving standards. As a result, this product line has now been inserted into the Energy Technology List, managed by the Carbon Trust.
