Shale gas fracking will help cut carbon emissions, UK Chancellor argues

UK Chancellor George Osborne has re-asserted his beliefs that climate change is a real phenomenon caused by human activity, but also added that the moves to mitigate its impact should be done “in the cheapest possible way”, a media news report has revealed.

And shale gas fracking would be the best solution to cut carbon emissions, George Osborne argued during a Hong Kong event. During his speech, he also challenged hardcore environmentalists, arguing that they should drop their opposition to the construction of new nuclear power stations in order to allow Britain to enjoy the “right mix” of energy sources.

The implementation of extensive energy consumption optimization technologies represents one of the best approaches to reducing carbon emissions and this is specifically where the HeatingSave building energy management system can help.

Building Energy 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.

HeatingSave comes packed with a number of features to prevent employees from adjusting the heating controls and leaving them in setting that can waste fuel. The keypad and display on the front of the controller has two levels of password protection.

These passwords can be changed by authorized personnel locally or centrally using the PC software. The password programming meets the requirements laid down by the Carbon Trust, and the PC software is user ID and password protected too.

Naturally, employees do have the right to set the ambient temperature at a value that best suites their needs, and HeatingSave manages this situation by firstly getting the temperature right so people don’t feel too hot or cold. If employees do feel too cold, they can hit a button to increase the room temperature. The heating will be turned up for a while BUT will then automatically turn back – keeping the employee at the right comfort temperature – and saving the employer on their fuel bill.
