A fourth volume in the Practitioner series, entitled 'Energy Management in Buildings' was published by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment in October 2003.
We spend much of our lives inside buildings and most of us, for most of the time, pay little attention to the energy consumed within them and the equipment they house. We also have little appreciation of the choices available to us to purchase energy efficient building services and the way in which good building design can reduce energy use and operating costs over the long term. This book seeks to provide practical guidance on all these matters for organisations.
The practitioner was prepared for the IEMA by the NIFES Consulting Group under contract to BRE's Sustainable Energy Centre with funding from The Carbon Trust's Action Energy programme.
According to Dr Garry Felgate, Director of Action Energy, "we are pleased to have the opportunity to work with the IEMA and its members. The IEMA's work in the field of sustainable development is key to achieving carbon dioxide emission reduction targets."
The chapters are: Energy Overview; Energy Use in Buildings; A Framework for Energy Management; Managing Energy Use in Buildings; Heating; Lighting; Office Equipment; Ventilation and Air Conditioning; Purchasing Energy; Renewable Energy Sources; and Saving Energy through People.
The Practitioner also contains two appendices, an Energy Saving Measures Checklist and some guidance on Investing in Energy Efficiency. Extensive lists of useful web sites and references and relevant publications are also provided.
