Improve the energy efficiency of your building
Our TÜV SÜD experts can produce an energy audit of your building’s energy use and identify opportunities for power conservation. This energy assessment is then consequently utilised to establish a personalised energy management program, thereby helping your business to save significantly.
Energy efficiency is increasingly turning into a determining factor in buildings. With steadily improving green technology, there has never been a better time than now to invest in energy efficient processes.
From opting to use more resource-efficient models of construction, renovation and demolition to considering alternative insulation, heating, water, waste and gas reduction options, there is a variety of energy efficient methods available for forward-thinking companies. An energy audit helps companies to improve their energy performance by making them more aware of their energy efficiency and consumption.
To establish a process of continuous improvement in energy efficiency, companies either need to implement an energy management system in accordance with the ISO 50001 standard or carry out an energy assessment at regular intervals in accordance with the EN 16247 respectively ISO 50002 standard. Although this process can be complex, TÜV SÜD’s commercial energy audit advisors are on hand to offer guidance and highlight key areas where you could save on excessive energy consumption.
Due to both direct and indirect environmental impacts that buildings have on their surroundings, green building standards, certifications and rating systems have been established to keep a harmonic balance between business and the environment. These certifications consider factors such as:
Energy efficiency assessments can optimise your business by highlighting the best green options available to help yow save energy and money.
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. In order to remain competitive, it is crucial to identify technologies, tools and systems that your buildings can leverage to drive down energy costs and realize these savings.
