Event spotlights energy savings potential in buildings
Gulf Engineering System Solutions (GESS) in May conducted a building automation systems seminar in Dubai, with the focus being on the Dwyer range of products from the United States.
Bradley Chapman, General Manager (Europe, Middle East, Africa, India and Pakistan regions) for Dwyer spoke on the occasion, as did Nick Malby, the Middle East Sales Manager of the company.
In his presentation, Malby said that BAS was key to saving energy in buildings, adding that owners would do well to invest in BAS, because energy savings would help the bottomline.
Pointing to the increase in energy costs and the decrease in cost of sensors and supporting equipment, Malby said the owner was staring at a reduced payback time.
In his presentation, Chapman zeroed in on Dwyer’s mission, which he said was to design sensors that were simple to install. Chapman said the company aimed to keep installation costs down. He spoke of removable connectors, back plate and electronics in separate parts and simple tools as the other features of the Dwyer system.
BAS was the way forward, Chapman said, adding that it enabled building owners to measure humidity, temperature, differential pressure, CO, CO2 and occupancy, and thus, better understand the building’s profile.
