Making building more energy efficient could save £12.1bn per year, new report suggests
An ambitious programme of insulating buildings, and producing more energy directly from buildings themselves could net savings to the economy averaging £12.1bn per year from now until 2050, a recent report published by the SEA (Sustainable Energy Association) has argued.
The Sustainable Energy Association is an industry body offering innovative policy solutions that link up building-level technologies and the wider energy system to achieve a low carbon, secure energy future for the UK, benefits for UK consumers, and commercial growth for businesses working in the sector.
The organization’s manifesto calls on all major political parties to adopt a renewed approach to energy policy, focusing on an Energy in Buildings Strategy, the use of smart technology to treat buildings as an integral part of the energy system, a new approach to home heating, recognising the potential of the heating installer as well as a major infrastructure-based energy refurbishment of the UK’s buildings.
Dave Sowden, Chief Executive said: “We have known for a long time that energy measures in buildings are cheaper in the long-run. Now the Government’s own tools and assumptions yield the same answer. There is a compelling case here to create a much stronger focus in energy policies on buildings. This will reduce waste, enhance energy security, reduce imported fossil fuels, lower people’s fuel bills and make a huge contribution to the UK economy. It is win/win all round.”
The HeatingSave Building Energy Management System helps customers save more than 30% on their bills by optimizing any heating system’s overall functionality. This is done by taking into account a variety of factors, such as internal and external temperatures, occupancy, time of the year, the particular characteristics of installed boilers, etc. All of the data is used in order to determine the best heating patterns for the various heating zones within any building, using our proprietary heat-loss algorithm.
The end result is that users still get a very good level of comfort, while in the same time saving energy and money in the process.
