YOU MUST SAVE 20% ON ENERGY BEFORE 2020. We can assist you.

CHALLENGE: TO DECREASE ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN BUILDINGS.
SOLUTION: ENERGY EFFICIENT VENTILATION SOLUTIONS.

THE ENERGY PERFORMANCE OF BUILDINGS DIRECTIVE

Following the Kyoto protocol the European Union has set a target to reduce energy consumption. For buildings the target is set at a 20% reduction by 2020.
The 160 million buildings in the EU use over 40% of Europe’s energy and create over 40% of its carbon dioxide emissions. And unfortunately that proportion is increasing. Therefore the Commission of the European Union has issued The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). Reducing the energy use of buildings without compromising the indoor environment and services is the key challenge for Europe.

 

To address the needs created by the EPBD directive, Fläkt Woods has poured a lot of effort into energy efficient solution (part of e3). Our solution is a broad approach leaving no stone unturned to achieve optimum results.

Being environmentally aware usually has its tolls. To put it plainly; it’s mostly the more expensive alternative.

But not anymore, and that’s the beauty of our e3 solution. We offer products, systems and components that will give you excellent indoor air quality, fire safety and you will still save energy and money.

LEED Certification

LEED stands for green building leadership. LEED is transforming the way we think about how buildings and communities are designed, constructed, maintained and operated across the globe.

LEED certified buildings save money and resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants, while promoting renewable, clean energy.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. Prerequisites and credits differ for each rating system, and teams choose the best fit for their project.

Fläkt Woods are proud partners for many LEED certified buildings.

Here are a couple of examples:

Thorpe Park, UK
Skanska Lindhagen, Sweden

HOW DO WE DO IT?

Our components are energy efficient.

High-performing components are an obvious starting point. With over one hundred years of experience that is what our customers have come to expect from us over the years.

Utilizing the latest technology to create smart solutions is achieved through our fully own design and manufacturing of fans, coils and energy recovery components (wheels, plate, run-around) coupled with massive R&D investments.

Our products are even better.

Not only our products integrate energy-efficient components but their design and their construction are made to  reach higher performance  on energy efficiency. This is especially the case with integrated controls and other devices which is the result of the long lasting experience of Fläkt Woods. 

Fläkt Woods installed base of energy recovery products has generated for our
customers: 11B$ in energy cost savings, >276 BKw energy savings, >54 m tons of CO2 savings.

Our systems Provide the best.

But it is by combining products into a system, utilizing smart controls, one can achieve the best energy solutions.
This strategy requires that the systems and individual components are designed together. It takes thorough knowledge of the individual product's impact on each other and the ultimate combined effect.

Luckily, Fläkt Woods develop and produce components as well as design systems. That's why we can combine the parts into harmonic overall solutions.

LCC sums it all up

We use the  “Life Cycle Cost“ analysis approach when designing ventilation systems to ensure optimal performance over time.

It balances the cost of better components and smarter system control with savings in maintenance and energy costs over the systems life time.

Not surprisingly, a smarter system comes out on top. About 85% of the life time cost is typically energy costs, 10% initial investment and 5% maintenance.
