Energy under control

The 2009 BCIA Conference theme will be ‘Energy under control: solutions to save money and energy’ and will focus on using building controls to reduce energy waste – and save money.

In today’s economic environment, facilities and energy managers in the public and private sectors are under pressure to find ways to reduce costs. Energy savings are a cost effective way to reduce outgoings – and building controls play a vital role in helping end users identify areas of energy waste, and manage how energy is used.

The conference will take place on 14 May 2009, at the Hilton Coventry, and will be targeted at facilities managers, energy managers and other professionals in the public and private sector with responsibility for monitoring and controlling energy in buildings.

BCIA President Doug Robins says: “Building controls offer a practical solution to a growing problem – how to cope with rising energy costs. BCIA member companies are well placed to offer clear advice on how building management professionals can start making savings through straightforward control strategies which are relatively cheap to implement. We want our 2009 conference to highlight this point, and to allow members to interact directly with the people who use our products and services.”

The BCIA Conference will also include a unique round-table element during the day, in which facilitated discussion groups will address hot topics identified by delegates before the event. The conference will end with a panel discussion and Q&A session.
