  • Buildings need integrated solutions

    By BSEE on March 26, 2012
    John Durbin, Engineering Department Manager at Daikin UK, examines the significant energy savings possible using integrated environmental control and heat recovery solutions and how a new conceptual tool can help specifiers and end users visualise those savings. Improving the sustainability of the built environment needs to become much more than a hypothetical aspiration. Indeed, the Pathways to 2050 – Key […]
  • Blueflux motors on

    By BSEE on April 4, 2011
    Whenever you need to move a liquid without having gravity on your side you need a pump to do it. So it should then not come as a great surprise that it is estimated that pumps use 10% of the global electrical power. In the EU, motors in general, consume 30% of all the EU electricity used and 20% of […]
  • The key to a low carbon future

    By BSEE on October 4, 2010
    Although the industry appears to be holding its breath following the closure of the Low Carbon Buildings Programme and the scrappage of the Building Schools for the Future scheme, the UK has tough carbon emission reduction targets to hit and renewable heating technology such as heat pumps will have to play a major role. Tempus fugit It’s going to take […]
  • Realising the carbon saving potential

    By BSEE on October 5, 2009
    All buildings consume energy and the more we regulate both internal air quality and energy consumption levels, the more building users will demand equipment and services that can satisfy both modern living and environmental concerns.  Is there a way to minimise the impact of a building’s services yet still provide the levels of comfort and control expected? You would expect […]

  • Energy efficiency is right on CUE

    By BSEE on April 2, 2009
    With budgets being cut and costs coming under more scrutiny than ever, it seems that the topic of incorporating energy efficiency aspects into the integral framework of commercial buildings may be a hidden victim of the credit crunch and as such is in danger of slipping down the building services agenda.  This is even though it is also becoming increasingly […]

  • Making the most of LPG

    By BSEE on August 29, 2008
    With buildings being responsible for nearly half the UK’s energy consumption and carbon emissions, building services managers are under pressure to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings they are responsible for.  This is the case in both urban and rural areas, for all types of commercial buildings – ranging from offices, factories and processing plants to leisure facilities, hospitals […]

  • Like for like?

    By BSEE on March 20, 2008
    Nowadays when we are looking to replace a fridge or washing machine, it has become second nature to put energy efficiency to the top of our shopping list by looking only at ‘A’ and ‘B’ labelling options.  This is both so that we can save on the ongoing running costs, as energy prices continue to rocket, as well as to […]
