REDUCED ENERGY BUILDINGS ON THE HORIZON

 

The Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority is rolling out a new scheme to encourage building owners to reduce their energy use. Energy efficient buildings have lower operating costs, hold their value longer and are more attractive to their tenants and occupants according to CEO Mike Underhill, whose company, EECA, will offer energy efficiency advisory services to commercial building owners, as well as advice on energy efficient design and fit-out of new buildings. It is estimated the amount of energy used could be slashed by around 90% on lighting, refrigeration & air conditioning alone, which is where the majority of energy is used in a commercial building.
