Energy Efficiency

It pays to go easy on the environment

Buildings are responsible for around 40% of the world’s power consumption. With Directive 2002/91/EC - Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, EPBD - the European Union is trying to improve the energy efficiency of properties.

Amongst the most important measures specified are the creation of an energy certificate for buildings (or energy ‘passport’) and the determination of minimum requirements for buildings.The components of the building automation and control systems (BACS) are evaluated with regard to their effect on the energy consumption of buildings with the new standard EN 15232 - “Energy Performance of Buildings - Effects of the Building Automation and the Building Management”.

In accordance with the new standard, building automation and control systems are divided into four different performance classes.

Performance classes
Class A
Applies to highly efficient BACS.

Class B
Designates BACS that have been developed further, with better functionality than standard systems.

Class C
Corresponds to the average BACS requirements currently in use.

Class D
Corresponds BACS that are not energy-efficient; buildings with such systems have to be modernized, new buildings must not be equipped with these systems.

This new standard also contains procedures for the calculation of energy performance by means of user profiles for various complex building types: Hotels, restaurants, offices, classrooms, auditoriums, retail centers and hospitals.

Combinations of these standard elements provide clear specifications of how to achieve a certain performance class.

Performance contracting

Putting energy savings back into your facilities

Our performance-based solutions guarantee energy savings throughout the contract period. The savings can in turn be used to fund your facility projects, thus underlining our commitment to achieve improved performance of your facility. Working together with you, we will develop a comprehensive plan specifically catered to strategic and technical business goals while promoting energy conservation and addressing environmental concerns.

Through our innovative performance-based solutions, you can be assured that your strategy will pay off – today and in the future. Energy performance contracting is used in building automation to modernize energy supply, HVAC plants, water supplies and lighting. Customized performance-based solutions allow facility, capital and technology improvements to be made within existing budgets.

Performance Contracting finance & benefits
Benefits of energy performance contracting are miscellaneous:

  • Modernized equipment with increased reliability

  • Reduced energy and operating costs

  • Secured financing and minimized risk

  • Guaranteed energy savings

  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions

Our guarantee ensures that facility improvements made today will lower consumptions costs, without compromising comfort and productivity, and minimize the environmental impact.

But be aware:
The greatest potential for the optimization of a project is during the planning phase of a building. At this stage, the course is set for additional costs and cost increases which may incur during the erection and subsequent use of the building.
