Commercial building owners are set get a Fit for 55 wake-up call when EU regulations to mitigate climate change are enforced, starting in late 2022. Here Phil Kane, Eaton’s Country Manager for Ireland, explains how they can anticipate the changes, reduce their buildings’ energy costs, and ease grid congestion.
Good intentions can be tough to translate into practical action but that’s what the commercial property sector must do now, if Europe is to meet its carbon net zero targets.
Developers and building owners – not to mention building services engineers and other system designers – must soon comply with new or updated regulations to curb carbon emissions, mostly emanating from the EU’s Fit for 55 legislative programme. Viewing this as an opportunity, rather than a burden, will mean they find gains to be made.
An immediately attractive outcome is the potential for swift, definitive, reductions in energy costs which can be realised by developing a sustainable commercial building power strategy to support on-site renewable generation, energy storage and the like.
