Did you know that 60% of your hotel’s carbon footprint comes from energy use? Not only that, but your bottom line is affected too: energy use is eating up 6-10% of your property’s revenues. It might not be your biggest operating cost – but it’s the one growing fastest! Besides, when it’s so easy to do a little hotel energy management, what hotelier wouldn’t want to save money on their next electricity bill? Plus, your customers actually want greener hotels – but they aren’t necessarily willing to

Cities in Europe are experimenting new ways to invest in energy transition and finance green measures at local level. Innovative financing models are becoming a priority because of lack of public funding The pioneering city of Stuttgart, Germany, was one the first to apply an innovative financing scheme back in 1995 and since then it has been bearing its fruit: energy-efficiency funding has reduced the city’s CO2 emissions by tens of thousands of tonnes. The scheme consists of setting up a revolving

European countries are missing smart buildings opportunities

BPIE, smart buildings, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Netherlands, report 16/02/17 14:39 http://www.construction21.org/articles/h/european-countries-are-missing-smart-buildings-opportunities.html European countries are missing smart buildings opportunities

An analysis by the Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) on the readiness of EU countries to transition to smart buildings concludes that no Member State is fully prepared to take advantage of the benefits that smart building technologies will entail. BPIE assesses aspects such as dynamic operability, energy-system responsiveness, renewable energy uptake as well as dynamic and self-learning control systems to judge how well prepared Europe is for an increasing share of smart buildings. Smart

Carbon Reporting Essentials When Compliance Meets Intelligence  For ESCO clients, identifying major emission sources can mean savings opportunities in the future. As energy manager, you are probably aware that your work has an impact on the carbon footprint of your customers in terms of cost savings and corporate social responsibility.  That's because carbon reporting regulations are becoming more restrictive. Many countries will follow the lead of the UK or Germany where most companies need to report

Streetlight-EPC Implemented Projects - Triggering the market uptake of Energy Performance Contracting through street lighting refurbishment

Streetlight-EPC Implemented Projects - Triggering the market uptake of Energy Performance Contracting through street lighting refurbishment Despite the great potential, most European regions have not yet seen a significant development of Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) markets. Due to its lower technical and economic complexity, street lighting is a good "learning and testing ground" for EPC. The project "Streetlight-EPC", funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme, creates demand and

A DHW recirculation system that does not waste any energy at all

Problem: Domestic hot water can represent up to 40% of energy consumption in a residential building, home or apartment and 30% to 50% of the heat produced during the generation of collective hot water disappear into the distribution loop. The "demand controls" looks to be the one that waste the less energy but it still have two main disadvantages: 1) The waiting time for hot water is too long. To evacuate 6 L of cold water it lasts +/-30 secs when the cold water is evacuated in the sink. With the

The building Quai Vendeuvre won the grand prize of the energy savings contest CUBE 2020 in 2016. While the 3rd edition of the contest just started, let’s ask the IFPEB’s director Cedric Borel about the score of the second edition’s winner, who made 38,5% of energy savings within a year!  You said 38,5%, really? How is that possible? Marguerite Dornier: You said 38,5%, right? It’s huge, isn’t it? Cédric BOREL: Yes! But still far from the 42% made by the Crédit Agricole of La Loire in 2008 in the Energy
