Traction VS Hydraulic. Who is going to create the atomic bomb first?

The war between traction and hydraulic lifts is still on going. There are still the traction fans and from the other side the oily fans. In this conflict many weapons have been used from both sides. Advantages and disadvantages are being promoted or minimized depending on the side you are.
In this battle a new weapon appears. A weapon that may give the win to the one or the other side. It will be impossible for both sides to take advantage of this weapon. It will be so powerful that its use will mean the end of the war and the prevail of one side, in the same way the atomic bomb ended the World War II.
This weapon is called renewable power sources.
How renewable power sources are going to affect the future of traction and hydraulic lifts? Can both types of lifts use renewable sources of power? If they can not, how are they going to enter the new 'green' era?
All big multinational lift companies have chosen the MRL traction lift with PM motor technologies adopted. Smaller companies are using advanced hydraulic systems with hi-tech control for energy efficiency and better drive quality.
However neither side managed yet to use the benefits of renewable power sources and give the opponent the final strike. 
Let we suppose that a company that produces hydraulic lifts, finds a way somehow to use a very small system with renewable power sources and enters the market. The impact will be so severe to the big multinational traction lift companies that they will be forced to spend in very short time, billions of dollars in order to strike back and do not loose the game before it even starts.
On the other side if a big multinational traction lift company shows up with the same small system, then hydraulic industries will be unable to respond in the challenge and the game will soon come to an end.
This is the reason that many manufacturers adopted both types of lifts in order to make sure that they are on the winner side no matter who wins.

We believe that the war is coming to its end. It is time for the planet to have a technological piece. This can be only achieved when the benefit of the final users is under consideration and not only the shareholders profit. The technology has as a purpose to make our lives better, not to make the 0,1% of the population extremely rich.

From now on, whoever speaks about energy efficiency must give a measurement of this efficiency with the unit of renewable power sources. To put it bluntly the question is: "You have power efficiency? How much this costs to move with renewable power sources?

Solar Home Lift - MEZUS SOLAR by Mezolift

Greek company Mezolift is the first company in the world to have created a solar lift for small houses. The solar lift was first presented in September, during the International Expo of Thessaloniki 2011.
Until now, the solar lift is being used in duplex apartments or small blocks of flats with 3 to maximum 4 floors. Its special design makes it ideal to fit even in the smallest of places. The product’s dynamics are subject to evolve and improve. Mezolift aims to create a lift to cover the needs of people living and working in bigger apartment blocks”.
There are many people, who would like to use a solar lifts today. Solar lifts are the lifts of the future and can save a lot of money and energy. Mezolift is going to use all the experience that the first solar lift has offered and make many steps further into this technology.



Technical features and basic advantages:
  1. It consumes 80% less energy than common lifts
  2. It works with 2 photovoltaic panels and 2 rechargeable batteries
  3. In cloudy days, it can be used up to 30 times per day and can continue working without charging for 3 days.
  4. It can transfer up to 4 people or 300kg.
  5. No danger of being trapped inside it due to batteries’ energy.
  6. It does not need a machine room.
  7. It is a 100% environmental friendly lift.
  8. It can give electrical power for other uses when emergency.
