EU.BAC, providers of intelligent building technology in Europe, look optimistically to the future

In the light of the fact that buildings consume 40% of Europe’s primary energy, European Building Automation and Controls Association (eu. bac), announced its guiding principles, which illustrate the significance of intelligent technology in energy-efficient buildings. The announcement was made at a working meeting in Paris in May.

According to the announcement, intelligent building services engineering is not only cost-effective, but is also a guarantee of compliance with the political directives for climate protection.

Thus, from eu.bac’s point of view, intelligent networking, consumption regulation, controlling and contracting are new products and services that form a basis for new jobs and growth across Europe. Technical building systems, therefore, translate into an investment that will be sought after in future, believes eu.bac.

Reflecting this, Peter Hug, Managing Director, eu.bac, said: “We provide the shortest payback periods for saving energy in buildings. This brings a new impetus for innovation, competitiveness and job creation.”

The association also stated that it promoted the comprehensive equipping of buildings and houses with modern control technology, thus reducing both costs and greenhouse gas emissions. The latest generation of automation products, it claimed, lastingly improves the energy efficiency of buildings by up to 14%, compared to the standard products, according to calculations by eu.bac. To ensure this, the association revealed that it has created an independent quality assurance system. Over 100 controllers already bear the eu.bacCert mark, it added.

This is also in keeping with the avowed goal of the association, which is the standardisation, testing and certifying of products, which are key to the energy-efficient control of building services installations.
