Building management systems to be deployed across hospitals and schools


Building management systems (BMS) are just one of the multiple energy saving measures that are set to be deployed across several hospitals and educational institutions in Jamaica, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The sum of $989.78 million has been provided in the 2019/20 Estimates of Expenditure under the Energy Management and Efficiency Programme (EMEP) to provide energy-saving solutions at the Falmouth, Mandeville and Kingston Public/Victoria Jubilee hospitals. The Marcus Garvey High School and the Ebony Park HEART Academy will also be equipped.

The money will also be used to conduct investment-grade audits at seven hospitals; review and update a lighting audit; train and develop manuals for facility managers; procure and install urban traffic management equipment; conduct diagnostic study for information technology platforms within the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology; conduct audit exercise for the 2018/2019 period; and commence a communication and awareness campaign.

The project, which is being implemented by the Office of the Prime Minister, seeks to promote energy efficiency in Government facilities and fuel conservation in road transportation by contributing to the avoidance of fuel imports.

HeatingSave – the perfect solution for achieving significant energy savings in the healthcare and educational sectors

Advanced BMS (Building Management System) solutions represent one of the top energy efficiency measures organizations of any scope and size can turn to, given the fact that they enable a superior level of control over the heating system and its extensive optimization, thus leading to lower overall consumption levels.

And this is exactly where the HeatingSave system might prove its worth, since our solution allows customers to achieve immediately savings of up to 30%+ on their energy bills. This is achieved by optimizing the energy consumption levels within any building with the help of an advanced heat-loss algorithm that creates a specific profile for any building and based on that, switches heating on later if it’s warm and off earlier if it’s cold.

It also automatically adjusts your boiler depending on how warm it is outside – save up to another 10%.

Furthermore, the system also offers an advanced automatic occupancy detection system that allows the temperature to reduce to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
