What is EN 15232: A new European standard EN 15232: "Energy performance of buildings - The Impact of Building Automation on Energy Efficiency Standard EN 15232 specifies methods to assess the impact of Building Automation and Control System (BACS) and Technical Building Management (TBM) functions on the energy performance of buildings, and a method to define minimum requirements of these functions to be implemented in buildings of different complexities.
The Facts about buildings: Buildings account for 41% of the worlds energy consumption Buildings account for 21% of green house gas emissions Energy Usage amounts to 50% of a building operational costs
Energy saving potentials with smart use of building automation & control systems (BMS): Shopping Centres 49% Commercial Offices 39% Education / Schools 34% Restaurants 31% Residential Complex 28% Hotels 25% Hospitals 18%
Our Vision for Sustainable Buildings: At Subnet we drive the philosophy that ALL New buildings should only be built based on future-oriented low-energy standards and equipped with energy-saving building automation and control functions of BAC efficiency class A. All Existing buildings & BMS systems should be optimised with energy-saving building automation and control functions and smart control strategies to ensure maximum efficiency.
