Raise the profile, transparency and trust of building automation controls
“The building automation links all building systems and optimises their interactions for more energy-efficient operation. An intelligent building automation is the interface between building management, technical systems and building users.” said Dr Peter Hug, Managing Director of the European Building and Automation Controls Association (eu.bac).
The first eu.bac System information event took place in Frankfurt on the 30th of October, 2013. The event’s objectives were to inform the German community about the current and the future activities of the eu.bac System Group and to facilitate the exchange of experience among its members following the German market introduction in March 2013.
The event was well attended by 70% of certified eu.bac System Auditors, 50% of eu.bac System Auditors in training, 60% of eu.bac System Trainers as well as by various representatives from the building automation controls industry. Among the participants were building services engineers, energy consultants, training professionals and building controls specialists.
Certified eu.bac System Auditors presented best practice cases and initiated a lively discussion about market challenges, customer response and the way forward. There were also discussions between certified trainers and building industry professionals. Every participant was eager to contribute to the exchange with their personal experiences and businesses point on the eu.bac System method.
“This event has exceeded my expectations in the detail of information and the engagement of the participants”, commented Christian Heim – Tridium (eu.bac System member)
The eu.bac System method evaluates the building automation “intelligence” in regards to energy efficiency and building use in a transparent and system-independent way based on EN15232. It is the first systematic approach to audit and benchmark the performance of the Building Automation Controls in respect to building energy efficiency. The method supports the professionals throughout the building lifecycle and brings benefits in the design, specification, commissioning and operation activities.
