Our energy future Buildings, a major source of global

energy savings

starts now Rising use of heating, air conditioning, lighting, and information
technologies has made our buildings increasingly energy hungry. These
systems far outstrip other applications as the number-one consumer of
electricity. In fact, electricity accounts for up to 50% of CO2 emissions
attributable to residential and commercial buildings.

Energy efficiency is no longer an option. The Kyoto Protocol has spurred governments
worldwide to pass legislation to ensure smarter energy use in buildings.

The European Union, for example, made a firm commitment in March 2007 to reduce

Other countries have adopted a slightly longer timeline and more ambitious targets, in energy efciency
aiming for a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050. 20% energy from

efforts to legislate, regulate, and set standards to improve energy efficiency.

A commitment to energy savings

Ask any building professional. So-called passive energy-efficiency

measures like insulation or low-energy-consumption equipment are not
enough to meet the challenges our energy future has in store.

Today, it is a buildings net energy consumption that counts:

the difference between energy consumed and energy produced.
And, to ensure that the buildings of the future are net energy producers,
we must reduce consumption and offset what we do use by producing
energy from renewable sources.

We can help you achieve net-producer status, and generate substantial

savings by optimizing the 3 pillars of energy-efficiency:

> Reduce consumption by implementing active energy-efficiency


> Produce clean energy from renewable resources

> Optimize consumption by using the latest technologies

We can help you make savings!

Depending on your business and type
of building, HVAC can account for over 40%
of energy consumption. You can reduce
HVAC energy consumption and
sustain optimal consumption levels
by improving the control and management of
ventilation, temperatures, and system usage.

You can meet todays demand for energy

efficiency, occupant comfort, and compliance with
standards by implementing one or more of the
following solutions:
> Install variable speed drives on pumps and fans
to adjust energy use to actual need.
> Design control architectures that facilitate
operation and interaction of heating, ventilation,

HVAC control
air conditioning, and window blinds, zone by zone.
> Choose equipment that improves energy
quality by eliminating power surges and reducing

Depending on whether you choose simple, stand-

alone control devices, a comprehensive building
management system, or a solution somewhere
in between, you can reduce the amount
of energy your HVAC system uses
by up to 30%.

Building management
You can optimize this major source of energy
consumption by installing a powerful, integrated
Building Management System based on open,
scalable devices and applications.

In addition to measuring consumption data and

transmitting it to automated systems, our Building
Management Systems deliver capabilities like
complex data analysis and detailed consumption
trend reporting while integrating consumption
and installation control features.

These solutions are within reach for all buildings,

regardless of type of use, current installation,
or budget.

Renewable power generation
Photovoltaic cellswhich capture
the suns energyare the heart
of any solar power system. The
intelligence of the system resides in
the electrical installation, however.
It is the electrical installation that guarantees
that the system works. It allows you to control a
source of energy that fluctuates constantly due to
changing weather, detect any losses, and correct
problems, all with the end goal of supplying high-
quality energy.

Our photovoltaic solutions respond to technical

issues while addressing processes to:
> Guarantee ROI within 10 years
> Streamline projects with convenient product-
plus-services packages
> Ensure the reliability of the equipment installed
> Simplify operation and optimize operating costs
> Offer innovative functions and services
> Protect the installation by adding remote safety
and monitoring systems

Choose the solution thats right for you

> Use available rooftop space to install and operate solar panels (p. 92)
> Boost your green image and save with photovoltaic energy (p. 94)
