CPD guide shows the way
Anyone wanting to lower their energy use to meet carbon reduction targets or reduce energy bills could do a lot worse than start by looking at their heating to find more energy efficient ways, and a new CPD-accredited guide has just been launched to help.
The independently written guide is produced for Mitsubishi Electric and is part of a series of CPD briefings, all designed to enhance knowledge and provide a view of the key issues facing our industry today.
Many legislative drivers are forcing building operators and owners to find new ways to reduce their energy consumption and there are also strong arguments for reducing the use of primary fuels by switching to more energy efficient and renewable sources of heat for commercial buildings.
The guide highlights that over 5,000 UK organisations are affected by the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) scheme which involves both financial incentives and penalties aimed at cutting carbon emissions. Even smaller companies that are not affected by CRC face the need to display energy performance certificates in their buildings.
