Designing more efficient machines

PIXIE and Zenius machines

Reducing energy consumption

Nespresso has brought together specialists from internal R&D teams and machine manufacturers to design more innovative, high-performing and energy efficient machines.

For example, PIXIE and U, our recent Nespresso consumer machine innovations, automatically switches off after nine minutes of inactivity. It consumes 60% less energy than a model rated as “A” according to FEA / CECED labelling.

We are also innovating machines for our business customers. The CS professional machine range in Europe has a standby function, which can be activated automatically after a delay chosen by the customer. In standby mode, in line with European regulations, the energy consumption of the CS220 machine is less than 0.5 W. It is over 20 times lower than when the machine is switched on and in ‘ready to use’ mode.

Our newest professional Zenius machine is not only fast (it is ready to use in less than 35 seconds), but it is also efficient thanks to its insulated water heater (known technically as a thermobloc). Energy consumption in ‘ready to use’ mode is reduced by up to 30% compared to conventional machines.
