Low Carbon Workplace
How did the Low Carbon Workplace break the ‘circle of inertia’ that has prevented many cost effective carbon reduction opportunities in non-domestic buildings from being realised?
Low carbon refurbishment is an essential element in building a sustainable city.
The main requirement for LCW was the provision of a metering and monitoring system with an integrated carbon and occupancy monitoring solution.
What was Achieved Through the use of the digitalenergy®Energy Management System?
- Emissions of just 1.62 tCO² per person representing a 33% reduction in tCO² per person in year 2 of occupation compared to year 1
- A reduction in the annual carbon footprint by 1.4% despite an increase by 46% in the number of hours that the office is occupied
- 45% lower running costs when compared to similar buildings
