Energy-efficient buildings use less energy, produce fewer CO2 emissions and offer better living or working conditions.
But building automation and control are not only attractive because they save energy costs. Thanks to short payback times, the necessary investments pay off already after a short time, especially if you compare them with other energy efficiency measures.
Planning cycle with reliable tools
The Siemens standardized planning cycle helps you achieve your buildings’ energy saving potentials in any case. The saved energy costs usually amortize the investment costs within a few years.
The energy consumption analysis conducted during the planning cycle is supported by different Energy Efficiency Tools to ensure an in-depth analysis and reliable estimates of energy savings. These tools also help secure a sound base for the improvement of building automation and control.
Based on the identified potentials, an action plan with appropriate measures is suggested to ensure that you sustainably reach your saving targets.
Energy efficiency potential according to EN 15232
The EN 15232 norm “Energy Performance of Buildings – Impact of Building Automation, Control, and Building Management” was introduced to better leverage the energy saving potential for control and operation of buildings.
Thanks to this norm, the energy saving potential resulting from building automation and control can be specified, thus enabling one to derive measures that improve energy efficiency.
