How to Close the Building Energy Performance Gap
Optimising Building Performance with Energy Analytics
Did you know that buildings tend to consume between 1.5 and 2.5 times the amount of energy originally predicted by their designers?
This alarming statistic is known as the building energy performance gap - a problem that energy managers and facility managers around the world have made it their mission to tackle.
The right technology mix is a key weapon in the battle to close the energy performance gap. But what combination of tools, strategies and best practices is best for your building portfolio?
And to what extent can building automation systems (BAS) and energy management systems (EnMS) work in harmony towards total building optimisation?
This guide will answer these questions and more:
- How can I detect if my building suffers from an energy performance gap?
- Are there real differences between a BAS and an EnMS?
- Does my building really need energy management software if it already has a BAS installed?
