Mitsubishi Electric has launched a new brochure that highlights all of the central plant solutions it can offer to help reduce energy consumption in the built environment.
Commercial buildings in the UK remain massive consumers of energy and, at the same time, the nation has to address the need to reduce emissions in order to meet ambitious carbon reduction targets.
Key drivers, from climate change and fuel poverty, to government legislation and increasing consumer pressure, are leading to changes in how energy is produced and consumed. With national fossil-fuel supplies dwindling, along with energy independence, how solutions are provided to address these changes is fundamental, according to Mitsubishi Electric.
Marketing manager Graham Temple said: 'Our occupied spaces have to be made more energy-efficient, less carbon intensive and incorporate renewable energy where possible.
'The good news is that many of the solutions are affordable, scalable and available now. We have created this brochure to highlight examples where the installation of well-designed, energy efficient central plant has really made a difference.'
The brochure looks at both the e-series modular chiller range and the comprehensive NX chiller line up. It details the renewable heating options available with the Ecodan range of air, ground and water source heat pumps and explains how the company's advanced range of Lossnay (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) Systems and Air Handling Units (AHU) can reduce energy consumption for almost any building.
The brochure also looks at large VRF air conditioning systems including the company's award-winning Hybrid VRF which uses water to heat and cool in occupied spaces, removing the need for leak detection.
Garahm Temple added: 'The other area we specialise in that can sometimes be overlooked is controls because you can have the best equipment in the world but it simply will not deliver the efficiency levels expected if you don't add in the advanced controls that help monitor and control energy use.'
