Industry is responsibe for 25% of the UK's Carbon dioxide emissions*. Companies spending over 500,000 thousand pounds a year on their energy bills are now obliged to take part in the Carbon Reduction Commitment (see our page for more information). Companies that have to take part in the scheme must have correct records of their energy usage. A good way to record this information and to then utilise the information in a practical way, is through a Building Management System (BMS). The BMS can identify key areas in the building where energy usage is very high- like the heating for example. By reducing the building thermostat by 1-2 degrees, a notable difference will be recorded.
