UK Prime Minister Commits to Halving the Energy Usage of New Buildings by 2030

The UK’s Prime Minister Theresa May has committed to using new technologies and modern construction practices to at least halving the energy usage of new buildings by 2030, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

Decarbonising mobility and buildings and boosting clean growth are among the four areas of development outlined in the UK’s Industrial Strategy.

Referring to the new green buildings target, Mrs May said: “Heating and powering buildings accounts for 40% of our total energy usage. By making our buildings more energy efficient and embracing smart technologies, we can slash household energy bills, reduce demand for energy and meet our targets for carbon reduction.

“By halving the energy use of new buildings – both commercial and residential – we could reduce the energy bills for their occupants by as much as 50% and we will aim to halve the costs of reaching the same standard in existing buildings too.”

Implementing specific smart control solutions designed to improve the level of heating efficiency across both domestic and commercial buildings is yet another factor that could help reduce energy consumption (and, with it, carbon generation), and that’s specifically where Building Management Systems come into play.

Building Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
