Energy Management Services announces value-added Smart Properties Programme
Energy Management Services (EMS), a leading Energy Management and Energy Conservation Company in the Middle East, has announced a value-added version of its Smart Properties Programme that seeks to save money for the user,
while at the same time saving on the use of water, electricity and gas.
The new programme will be of considerable significance in view of the increased burden on expenses of energy bills that almost double in size during the summer months.
"The demand for energy management has been increasing in the recent years with an increased consciousness of the all round benefits of such measures," said Khaled Bushnaq, Managing Director, Energy Management Services. "It has been our observation that the need for energy management comes to the forefront with the onset of summer, as commercial users of energy, as well as landlords of existing commercial and residential complexes begin to plan their energy budgets for the high energy consuming summer months."
"Till very recently, the widely held belief was that energy was the least controllable of all expenses. However, EMS quantified energy use patterns through extensive energy audits in all kinds of situations and in every user segment. This was followed by the formulation of a clearly articulated Building Management System (BMS), which, over the years has demonstrated its effectiveness through increased saving on energy bills, as well as a proven reduction in Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions," added Bushnaq.
"CO2 emissions are the largest contributor to human-generated greenhouse gases and are presently the subject of much debate around the world. Each kWh (kilowatt-hour) of energy delivered to a building incurs atmospheric emissions
of about 0.5 Kg CO2 from the extraction and processing, as well as the delivery of fuel and its consumption on site."
The new research, conducted by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), is based on the financial investment into 4 segments of expenditure through the entire lifecycle of a building.
It has been established that over a 40 year lifecycle, a substantial 50 per cent of the investment will be made into operational costs that are dominated by energy bills. Only 11 per cent of the investment goes into the actual construction of the building, another 14 per cent is spent on financing options; whereas 25 per cent of the investment is made into post construction structural alterations. Using the BMS, a Smart Property can save up to 10 to 20 per cent annually on its operational expenditure. (menareport.com)
