iVolt Teams up with Lord Drayson to take Energy Solutions 2012 up a Gear
LONDON, September 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
iVolt, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of voltage optimisation equipment, has
teamed up with Drayson Racing Technologies to help take October’s Energy Solutions 2012 up
With what promises to be one of the highlights of the show, iVolt will display DRT’s
groundbreaking electric racing car at the London Olympia exhibition – fresh from its debut
at Goodwood Festival of Speed where it made automotive history in front of thousands.
The car – the B12/69EV – is the brainchild of green technology pioneer and former
Minister of Science and Innovation Lord Drayson. It showcases advances such as inductive
charging, composite battery power, moveable aerodynamics and electrical regenerative
damping, making it one of the most innovative cleantech motorsport projects in the world.
It also boasts more than 850 horsepower and a top speed of around 200mph.
Based near Heathrow, iVolt is also at the forefront of green technology. Its
award-winning voltage optimisation system can reduce electricity bills and Co2 emissions
by up to 20% and has been installed by, among others, supermarket giants, railway
stations, hotel and restaurant chains, factories and schools. It is the only voltage
optimisation equipment on the market to offer a patented Intelligent Real Time Energy
Monitor, which can track the savings voltage optimisation is producing at a site both
remotely, and in real time. iVolt will also be launching a pioneering new product at the
Energy Solutions show, which is set to revolutionise power supply to new builds.
Regulars at the exhibition – which takes place this year from October 10-11, next door
to the FM event – may remember iVolt displaying another racing car, the Radical SR8, at
the 2011 show.
iVolt founder and managing director Manhal Allos, who races a Radical and used iVolt’s
technology to monitor his car’s power consumption and offset its carbon emissions, said he
was delighted to have teamed up with DRT to showcase their electric prototype racing car
at this year’s exhibition.
Manhal said: “As well as the motor racing links, both iVolt and Drayson Racing
Technologies share a passion for developing sustainable, green technology and we’re
delighted to have the B12/69EV on our stand at Energy Solutions 2012. This car is possibly
the most exciting leap forward in racing car design in a generation and I think show-goers
will be very interested to see it and find out a bit more about the principles shared by
As well as displaying the B12/69EV, the team will be performing live demonstrations of
their IRT Energy Monitor over the course of the two days.

Energy Solutions 2012; is the UK’s leading energy management event, combining both an
ideal space to showcase the latest products and innovations with a quality free-to-attend
education programme, another highlight at this year’s event will be a keynote speech from
Lord Sebastian Coe KBE, fresh from his pivotal role in the biggest sporting event of the
year. He will present to the audience the challenges he has faced throughout his career
and discuss how he motivates change in mindset and behaviour to achieve project goals.
Note to editors:
iVolt is part of the global Sollatek group which was founded by electrical engineer
Manhal Allos in the UK in 1983. It has since grown rapidly, with offices in 14 countries
and an active distribution network in 24 more. Its products are sold in more than 70
countries and it has manufactured and installed some 440,000 voltage
stabilisers/regulators in major infrastructure projects. The group’s impressive list of
blue chip clients includes Siemens, Phillips Medical, Vodafone, National Grid, Airtel and
A voltage optimisation device, the iVolt works by monitoring the incoming power supply
to a building and lowering it to a steady 220V (+/- 1.5%) – the level at which electrical
equipment works best. It is unique in constantly assessing and delivering optimum energy
savings – at least 30% more than fixed reduction voltage products. With a fully solid
state design and therefore no mechanical parts, the iVolt provides faster voltage
correction and requires no annual maintenance. Perhaps the most outstanding customer
benefit is data on actual energy savings on a day-by-day basis – the most sought-after
feature in the voltage optimisation industry because of the requirement for an accurate
analysis of return on investment.
Built to ISO9001 standards, production of the iVolt takes place at the company’s
facility near Heathrow Airport.
