Building energy management systems can help slash operating costs, make workplaces healthier
Energy efficient buildings can play a significant role in helping to ensure healthier workplaces, and therefore better bottom lines for businesses, while also delivering significant environmental and operating cost benefits, a report released recently by the World Green Building Council (World GBC) has been able to suggest.
The paper highlights case studies of buildings around the world that have one or more green certifications such as LEED or BREAM. It found that as well as saving on energy costs, the sites’ health and wellbeing features – such as enhanced fresh air ventilation, green walls or maximum use of natural light – delivered a cut in employee absenteeism, reduced operating costs, and ensured a more productive workforce for building tenants.
However, it’s not only building owners that are becoming more aware of the importance of energy efficiency measures, it’s also their employees and the public at large.
A survey by One Poll of 1,000 UK homeowners found 95 per cent have energy saving measures already installed in their homes. Some 60 per cent said their property has loft insulation, while 57 per cent reported switching old light bulbs with energy efficient alternatives, and more than half have replaced single glazed windows with double glazing.
More than three quarters of respondents said saving money was the main motivation for installing energy efficient measures, with half expressing a desire to cut their environmental impact.
It’s clear homeowners and businesses alike stand to save thousands of pounds on their energy bills by switching to greener technologies and upgrading their buildings’ efficiency standards. And news that a greener home or office could improve health and wellbeing standards is only likely to accelerate this trend.
