“The cheapest kilowatt of energy is the one you never use” – that was the key message delivered to delegates at a recent seminar entitled ‘Climate Change Regulations’
The seminar, which took place at ebm-papst’s dedicated client centre, addressed key issues facing the construction industry, including the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, The Green Deal, Zero Carbon Homes and Building Regulations. Mike Malina, an industry renowned expert from Energy Solutions Associates, rounded off the day by discussing whether the Building Regulations are a burden or an opportunity – concluding that saving energy is an excellent financial investment for businesses.
Geoff Lockwood, Technical Director for ebm-papst, also presented an insightful overview of the incoming Energy related Products legislation and its potential impact on the building services sector. Other speakers were Garry Worthington (Climate Consulting), Clive Turner (Zero Carbon Hub), and Marc Smith (energyTEAM).
Event delegate Claire Hadley, environmental and corporate responsibility supervisor for Kier Construction Eastern, commented: “I was really impressed with the event and the level of knowledge presented by each of the speakers. This is a rapidly changing landscape and it is important to keep on top of the changes that are developing. ebm-papst has delivered a wealth of really useful information that I can now share with my colleagues and use to guide future developments at Kier.”
