05 Sep 13 ESSE EL 13Amp electric cooker


ESSE has been making some pretty cool stoves, like the log burning ESSE 990 range cooker or the multifuel Ironheart. The latest ESSE EL 13Amp is a beautiful, traditionally styled electric range with modern functionality and advanced controls, offering the perfect combination of ESSE iconic style and high end, energy efficient performance.


ESSE EL 13AMP features 2 ovens, a full-width grill, cast iron hotplate, induction zone and a plate-warming cupboard. Top and bottom ovens feature patent pending surround elements which give even oven temperatures and allow cooking on directly on the bottom of the oven. The surround elements also avoid the grilling characteristic, associated with ovens heated by elements placed above the ovens. The main cooking oven has a maximum temperature of 250°C for perfect roast potatoes.


With its patent pending energy-efficient design, the EL 13AMP is simply plugged it into two 13amp sockets – without having to worry about chimneys, flues or gas pipes. Each oven and heating surface can be independently adjusted to the temperature you require. If a particular cooking area is not needed, you can turn it off or down without affecting the other areas.


The cast iron hot plate has a maximum temperature of 400°C making it a versatile hotplate for boiling and frying or – used at lower temperatures – for simmering and direct hotplate cooking. The induction zone offers rapid boiling and economical energy usage. The ESSE EL 13AMP can be used in a slumber setting to provide swift heat up times or simply used as an On/Off appliance. Each cooking area is independently controlled.


Like all ESSE range cookers, the EL 13AMP is made in Britain and is available in a choice of 14 standard colours – Black, Cream, White, Salmon, Classic Green, Pastel Green, Teal Green, Oxford Blue, Royal Blue, Powder Blue, Lavender, Dusky Violet, Pewter, Cocoa, as well as in 6 custom – Fern Green, Wedgwood, Copper Brown, Claret, Saffron, Primrose.

16 Oct 11 Electromobility driven by Infineon: Energy management in electric cars – The need to conserve natural resources, reduce emissions and raise energy efficiency has become a major public concern. Amidst worries about dependence on oil and climate change, demand for electricity continues to soar. According to the International Energy Association, worldwide demand for electrical energy is set to rise by more than 60% over the next 20 years. The way forward does not necessarily lie in producing more electricity, but in wasting less of it. To sustain our current economic model into the future, we need to optimize energy efficiency across the entire power chain, stretching from generation through distribution to actual consumption. In other words, industry is challenged to develop smart solutions enabling climate-neutral sourcing, intelligent distribution through smart grids and efficiency-aware applications and appliances.
