Decarbonising buildings through improving efficiency and integrating renewables
Actionable ways to decarbonise buildings for M&E engineers.
Buildings, which are concentrated in urban areas, are part of the emissions problem. They can also be part of the solution if they are sustainably constructed and responsibly maintained. Investors, designers, and facility managers can contribute to emissions reduction and help achieve the net-zero emissions target by adopting energy efficiency measures, digitalization, and using distributed energy resources (DERs) with a microgrid.
New technologies that improve energy efficiency and standards such as IEC 60364-8-1 and IEC 60364-8-82 are available today. The challenge will be identifying and incorporating the best design solution and managing them effectively to capture the most value in terms of emissions reduction.
Key Learning Points:
- Understand how new technologies like digital solution and Microgrid can help decarbonise buildings
- Learn how to integrate various technologies to decarbonise buildings
- Improve energy efficiency by following standards like IEC 60364-8-1 and IEC 60364-8-82
