Informa Markets Invests in Energy Saving Tune® Filters as Part of Its Mission to be a Leader in Sustainability
ROGERS, Ark. – Today, Tune® filters announced a partnership with the world’s leading tradeshow organizer, Informa Markets, to install portable electric panels at their yachting and boating shows, as part of their exhibitions organizer’s sustainability ambitions. Tune® creates passive inductive filters that utilize currents from non-linear loads out of the electric panels within buildings, using no electricity in the process, and reducing electrical usage by a minimum of 5% each month, with many reducing between 15%-25%.
Sustainability is one of Informa Markets’ key values, as they look to transform the tradeshow industry into a more responsible space and provide opportunities for customers to reduce their carbon impact and participate in events that are carbon conscious. Informa has committed to a series of ambitious goals and activities that reduce their environmental impact, including a 5 year pledge, known as FasterForward, to move closer toward sustainability targets including carbon neutrality, as well as a 10 year pledge, Faster to Zero, to become a zero waste and net zero carbon business by 2030.
“Sustainable practice isn’t a one-stop-shop,” said Ken McAvoy, President of Informa Markets South Florida’s Ventures Division and EVP, Corporate Development. “It requires a series of actions and a serious commitment to upholding them. We are moving away from diesel generators moving forward, as well as auditing our energy consumption and impact. Tune® filters are one of the ways we are upholding those commitments, reducing the environmental impact at our boating and yachting shows with filters that consume no energy, and in fact, reduce your energy consumption. Tune® has been a meaningful partner to us as we look to accelerate change in our markets of influence.”
Tune® filters are helping Informa Markets meet their aggressive goals by reducing the energy consumed at their tradeshows and prolonging the life of electronic equipment and appliances. Tune® makes this possible by addressing a problem you may not have heard of – disruptive noise, otherwise known as harmonics. Disruptive noise in your electrical system wreaks havoc, increasing energy consumption, producing heat, and placing undue stress on equipment. Without any fanfare, the Tune® filter addresses this problem.
Innovative in its design, the Tune® filter uses time-tested electric principles and electrical components. However, it applies these components in a new way. Through a patented process, its inventors discovered a way to capture and filter disruptive noise. Initially created to reduce heat and protect electronics in data centers, the team found that their filters also reduced energy consumption. With this discovery, they realized this product had the opportunity to create lasting environmental impact, reducing our reliance on natural resources.
“We are trialing this at our boat and yacht shows, but hope to expand the use of this technology at other tradeshows in the coming years,” said McAvoy. “While proven, Tune® is a relatively unknown technology. I’m glad we found them, and I encourage other businesses to look into Tune®.”
Tune®, LLC is the manufacturer of a patented filter designed to reduce electricity consumption and prolong the life of electronics. Tune® customers typically see consumption savings between five and fifteen percent or more, and many report reductions in equipment maintenance. The filter technology mitigates the disruptive noise (current harmonics) introduced into an electrical system by computers, LED lighting, and many other lower voltage electronics. Tune® filters are UL-listed and validated as an energy-saving product by third-party testing using U.S. Department of Energy standards.
