Embraco’s new inverter delivers up to 50% energy savings in domestic refrigerators

Embraco has been providing refrigeration technology for the complete residential and commercial cold chain since 1971. The brand is part of Nidec Global Appliance, a platform of Nidec Corporation.

Recently, Embraco started mass production of the VESH variable speed compressor, a new generation of the VES series. It is an upgrade of the brand’s premium portfolio of highly energy efficient products for residential applications from refrigerators to freezers.

Ricardo Bristotti is the vice president for the Home Appliances Business Segment at Nidec Global Appliance. He explained, “VESH pushes the limits of energy savings in response to a market context in which this topic has become one of the main priorities for refrigeration appliances manufacturers and homeowners due to high energy prices, especially in Europe where they are skyrocketing.”

The VESH can achieve up to 50% energy savings if compared to a traditional standard fixed speed compressor and around 30% if compared with already more energy efficient fixed speed models. The level of energy efficiency achieved allows Embraco’s customers, the residential refrigerators manufacturers, to reach the highest classification level A in the energy labels systems with the most stringent regulations in the world, including those in Europe and Japan.


The VES compressors family is the premium platform of Embraco’s portfolio so besides efficiency, it also has the higher standards for acoustics. The VESH arrives on the market as the smallest variable speed compressors on this efficiency range.

“Miniaturization of products is among the main drivers of our innovation process for its many benefits”, Bristotti said. “A smaller compressor allows more internal space inside the refrigerator cabinet, enables reduction of processes and materials used in the production flows and optimizes the transportation, contributing to environmental sustainability.”
