Energy efficiency & Pio
How using Pio saves you energy.
High energy costs can challenge the sustainability of your business – both financially and environmentally. Andreas Doppelmayr, who uses Pio for his company Dapper, finds that Pio actually reduces energy use: “Energy costs are a challenge for us in these times. With Pio, we save electricity.”
How is that possible? You’d assume that robots consume more energy than a traditional warehouse. But in reality, our robots are designed to be as efficient as possible. In fact, they use no more energy than a running laptop – just 100 watts. That’s less energy than used to run a vacuum machine.
What’s more, Pio cuts down dramatically on energy used to heat and light cavernous warehouse spaces, and the subsequent cost. Andreas explains, "with Pio, we save electricity by only heating parts of the warehouse and switching off lighting over the grid.” As our robots run just fine in the dark and the cold, there’s no longer need to pump energy into keeping warehouses hospitable. As the robots take on the tedious tasks in the less-than-cozy conditions of a warehouse, Pio improves working conditions for humans.
