Reduce environmental footprint and optimise your energy consumption
Innovations in sustainable design, fire resistance, lifts and escalators, acoustics and energy efficiency are ever increasing, as are building standard requirements. It is vital that your assets comply to certain regulatory standards. TÜV SÜD’s first-class green building advisors can assess the energy certification of buildings with the help of complex energy modeling and energy simulation programmes.
Our experts provide first-class intelligence and on-site energy efficiency advice for commercial, industrial and residential buildings. We provide a reliable evaluation of the present state of the building on all aspects that offer high potential for optimising energy consumption: thermal insulation; heating; lighting and air conditioning. Our energy simulation and modelling design services provide an accurate and reliable representation of a building’s energy consumption. Our specialised software analyses the relationship between various systems to help understand a building or project’s needs and helps support stakeholders in making favourable green energy decisions.
By incorporating expert energy simulation and modelling in the design process of your building, you can dramatically reduce your environmental footprint and make some significant monetary savings.
Buildings account for nearly 40 percent of total energy usage worldwide and up to 38 percent of global CO2 emissions. Green buildings use 30 percent less energy than conventional buildings and research indicates that every US$1 invested into energy efficiency avoids more than US$2 in energy supply costs.
To remain competitive, it is crucial to identify technologies, tools and systems that your buildings can leverage to drive down energy costs and realise these savings. Energy advisory and energy modeling are key to the sustained success of your business.
By utilising TÜV SÜD’s energy simulation and modelling software and green building advisors, you can benefit from the following:
TÜV SÜD advisory experts are able to use sophisticated software and a methodology of energy modeling and simulation as well as lighting simulation to analyse alternative scenarios as a basis for your decision-making process. Where applicable, TÜV SÜD experts can support in the examination of alternative heating strategies, e.g. integration of solar energy or examination of the use of renewables as part of your energy mix.Our energy modeling and energy advisory services include:
After absorbing all the model data, our energy simulation software combines this with historical data and estimates the performance of the entire building and system components for the year. This pre-emptive measure can therefore greatly benefit your business financially in the long-term, as can our vast portfolio of other green building services.
TÜV SÜD’s advisory services for buildings complement a complete portfolio of testing, inspection and certification services for the real estate industry and customised services for green buildings.
Our interdisciplinary team consists of electrical, construction and plant engineering experts with decades of combined experience working on significant global projects. With the ever-changing national and international standards for green buildings and energy efficiency, building designers, developers, operators and facility management companies have to stay up to date and comply with these standards. Our experts also have in-depth familiarity with all relevant international regulatory requirements regarding energy. They are regularly called upon to advise local authorities, energy suppliers and project designers across the globe on investment decisions to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions.
