Buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of energy consumption and over 30% of CO2 emissions, in both the EU and the U.S. For most facilities, energy consumption and equipment maintenance represent a large percentage of operating costs. For most, this has remained an untapped opportunity for improving energy and operational efficiencies.
However, energy costs continue to rise in most regions, environmental regulations continue to emerge, and maintenance costs keep increasing (partially due to the need to meet safety and maintenance standards). Faced with these realities, organizations need to find affordable ways to manage energy-related financial and operational risks.
Fortunately, three new, cost-effective technologies and services offer simple and effective ways to improve energy efficiency, occupant comfort, productivity, and maintenance, while getting greater performance from electrical distribution, HVAC and refrigeration systems. All of this is possible without increasi..
