A host of energy saving options for commercial buildings
A new brochure from Mitsubishi Electric highlights all of the central plant solutions that the company can offer to help reduce energy consumption in our built environment.
Commercial buildings in the UK remain massive consumers of energy and, at the same time, the nation has to address the need to reduce emissions if we are ever to meet ambitious carbon reduction targets.
“Our occupied spaces have to be made more energy-efficient, less carbon intensive and incorporate renewable energy where possible,” explains Graham Temple, Marketing Manager for the company..
Key drivers, from climate change and fuel poverty to Government legislation and increasing consumer pressure, are leading to changes in how we produce and consume energy.
With our national fossil-fuel supplies dwindling, along with our energy independence, how we provide solutions to address these changes is fundamental.
“The good news is that many of the solutions are affordable, scalable and available now,” adds Temple, “we have created this brochure to highlight examples where the installation of well-designed, energy efficient central plant has really made a difference.”
The brochure looks at both the e-series modular chiller range and the comprehensive NX chiller line up. It details the renewable heating options available with the Ecodan range of air, ground and water source heat pumps and explains how the company’s advanced range of Lossnay (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) Systems and Air Handling Units (AHU) can reduce energy consumption for almost any building.
The brochure also looks at large VRF air conditioning systems including the company’s award-winning Hybrid VRF which uses water to heat and cool in occupied spaces, removing the need for leak detection.
“The other area we specialise in that can sometimes be overlooked is controls because you can have the best equipment in the world but it simply will not deliver the efficiency levels expected if you don’t add in the advanced controls that help monitor and control energy use,” ends Temple.
