These figures from the Carbon Trust are pretty astonishing. Find out how we can help you to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions in your university, college or school by taking control of air conditioning systems, lighting and heating in unoccupied spaces.
The education sector encompasses all kinds of buildings, spaces and facilities - ranging from classrooms and lecture theatres, to corridors, gymnasiums, stockrooms and common areas. It's no wonder energy efficiency can be so challenging for Estates and Energy Managers. The good news is, our British designed and manufactured air conditioning and lighting control technologies are proven to minimise energy waste and maximise student and staff comfort.
According to the Carbon Trust, the energy consumed by air conditioning systems is expected to double by 2020. Added to that, on average, 20% of electricity costs are associated with lighting. Within these consumption figures, there is inevitably an element of energy wastage. What's needed is a way to take control of energy use in unoccupied rooms and zones.
At Climateq, we are helping schools, colleges and universities to take control of their electricity bills. In fact, where installed, our control based solutions are proven to achieve an average 34% reduction in energy use. Our affordable technologies offer a double win: they lower CO2 emissions and improve building comfort for staff and students by pre-heating or pre-cooling the room prior to occupancy in the morning. And, there's no doubting comfortable students will be more attentive, making learning more enjoyable and productive for everyone.Contact
