The next big gains for energy saving in buildings
Wed 18 April, 2:30pm | KONE Smart Building Theatre
For the environment, building owners and building occupiers, improved building energy efficiency presents a win-win-win solution. The many benefits of energy reduction include: reducing stress on the electricity network; supporting a least-cost pathway to decarbonisation; delivering cost savings; and improving building user comfort. This session will discuss how efficiencies in energy consumption can achieve these benefits in new and renovated buildings against the background of the anticipated improvements to the National Construction Code due to be incorporated in the 2019 Code update.
Controlling the building to reduce cost and complaints
Thurs 19 April, 11:45am | KONE Smart Building Theatre
Juggling HVAC efficiency with occupant comfort is a challenge in many buildings. Using control systems to improve HVAC performance can provide immediate benefits in terms of energy use and costs. However, FM’s can be reluctant to meddle with controls due to the risk of increases in occupant complaints. This panel discusses the opportunities, evidence, potential savings and pros/cons of low-cost options to improve HVAC efficiency. It is possible to reduce HVAC energy consumption without adversely compromising the comfort of building occupants. Come and hear from industry experts and those who have done it talk through and find out how.
Managing the transition from synthetic to natural refrigerants
Thurs 19 Apil, 2:45pm | KONE Smart Building Theatre
With the start of the phase-out of synthetic refrigerants on 1 January this year, this session examines some of the issues around selecting and implementing natural alternatives. The discussion will consider topics such as government policy; alternative natural refrigerant options; examining the cost and energy viability of alternatives; and compliance monitoring. In summary, Australia is the latest country to follow the lead of Europe in making this transition, so what lessons can be learned from the European approach and the resulting solutions?
