Support in sourcing and utilising energy smarter

The construction and operation of a building contributes up to 40% of the world’s energy consumption, which is a significant figure in the face of increasing energy costs and scarcity for fossil fuels. International laws and directives for energy use are becoming increasingly stringent and building owners as well as operators need to evaluate the benefits of transforming their assets into energy-efficient buildings against potential utility savings.

The key to introducing energy-efficient buildings into your real estate is to conduct a holistic analysis of the building design, materials used, technical building services, equipment and components selected and the production operations throughout the entire building lifecycle.

TÜV SÜD provides holistic expert intelligence and onsite energy efficiency advice for commercial, industrial and residential real estate on both existing building structures and systems as well those as in the pre-construction phaseStart saving money by improving the cost-effectiveness of your building and its systems. Our experts pinpoint potential areas for energy savings and make recommendations to maximise the efficiency of your assets, from design to construction phase.
