Building management systems to become increasingly popular as global firms bolster their energy efficiency spending
Large companies are set to bolster their energy efficiency spending, with building management systems (BMS) being among the most popular improvement measures, a recent survey of nearly 2,000 facility and energy management executives from across 20 countries has been able to suggest.
The poll found that 57% of organisations in the US and 59% of global organisations are looking to increase investment in energy efficiency measures in the next year, with many of these organisations planning to increase spending on smart building measures at a greater rate than more traditional efficiency measures.
Building controls improvements were cited as the most popular investment for the next 12 months among US organisations, with 68% of respondents planning to implement such measures.
Building system integration also saw a 23% increase in respondents planning to invest in 2019, the largest increase of any measure in the survey.
Companies responding to the survey identified greenhouse gas footprint reduction, energy cost savings, energy security and enhanced reputation as key drivers of investment, fuelling growth in green, zero carbon and resilient buildings.
