Local government

Now more than ever, government and public sector buildings are under pressure to lead the way in achieving energy efficiency goals and reducing carbon emission in their buildings.

Buildings account for approximately 40% of the energy consumption and 36% of carbon dioxide emission in the European Union (EU). Publicly owned or occupied buildings represent about 10-12% by area of the EU building stock (source: eurosaiop)

ABB Cylon have been helping government buildings achieve energy efficiency savings with our smart connected range of HVAC controls, flexible lighting control and extensibility to include ancillary building services. This is combined with real-time information on building conditions and powerful energy management that analyzes energy consumption and target savings in a building, enabling energy efficiency improvements and the continuous commissioning of buildings.

A properly commissioned, installed and managed Building Energy Management System can yield up to 39% energy savings in offices, 34% in schools and 18% in hospitals, etc., resulting in real and significant savings on public funds.

Government buildings can save substantial utility costs with the installation of ABB Cylon smart building solutions that effectively manage HVAC and lighting, the largest users of energy in modern buildings, and prevent up to 20% building energy drift per annum through continuous monitoring and management of building energy usage with ABB Cylon energy management tools.
