DMG Delta attends the Energy Solutions Show

DMG Delta attends the Energy Solutions ShowWe’ve just returned from attending the Energy Solutions Show at Olympia. Supported by the British Institute of Facilities Management, of which DMG Delta is a member.

It was a great opportunity to discuss the latest products and technologies for improving the energy efficiency of organisations. Running parallel to this show was the M&E Building Services Event. Here we heard from top speakers about new building legislation and regulatory changes.

It provided a useful reminder of the recent consolidation of building regulations, with clarification on requirements that have been in contention such as the question: When is work on a flat roof a repair and when is it a renovation requiring Part L permission?  The simplest answer is to ask us! The continuing drive for zero-carbon buildings was also put into focus with the challenge for non-domestic buildings being achieving the optimum balance between reducing heating, cooling and electric lighting demand.

As maintenance specialists, it was good to confirm the latest developments in energy management. From retrofitting boiler load optimisation devices to energy saving light bulbs and occupancy sensors, what impressed us with this 2011 show is how practical these options have become. Without a completely new custom installation it is now possible to take relatively small steps, within your planned preventative maintenance programme and get a significant return in energy savings.
