Energy Efficiency: Why and How?

Published July 23, 2020



Circular economy, energy efficiency, energy transition, green recovery and so on… These are concepts we regularly hear about those days. Climate change causes a lot of concern all around the world and world leaders look at the issue very closely. The European Union especially attaches great importance to ensuring a sustainable future. To do so, it implemented various strategies with the aim of becoming the first carbon neutral continent by 2050.

The use of energy is a particular point that we need to take into consideration. As you may know, there are many reasons to improve energy efficiency: reducing energy use reduces energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

Actually, energy efficiency equals to a smart use of energy to produce a product or service. For instance, if you want your building to use less heating and cooling energy, you can insulate it. However, this is not enough to make your building energy efficient at 100%. bcheck can give you a hand in this matter by giving you visibility into your heating installations with its boiler management solution which allows to increase your heating installations’ energy efficiency through smart and remote monitoring! This solution, which is sustainable and cost-effective, can make you save at least 10% of your primary energy.

In brief, gaining visibility means:

  • Optimised use;
  • Increased efficiency and comfort;
  • Reduced carbon footprint and maintenance costs;
  • Savings on your energy bill!

Make buildings energy efficient
According to the International Energy Agency, improved energy efficiency in buildings, industrial processes and transportation could reduce the world’s energy needs in 2050 by one third, and help control global emissions of greenhouse gases. The European Union expressed that making buildings energy efficient will highly contribute to the achievement of its energy and climate goals.

The European Union encourages “renewable heating and cooling technologies, such as biomass boilers and solar heating systems, contribute to reducing the important and use of fossil fuels. Energy-efficient technologies and energy management solutions can be applied for the industry, and combined heat and power units can benefit the energy system and local energy generation.” Bcheck’s self-devloped IoT technology fits in EU’s vision as well as mission. It is also part of the circular economy as the lifespan of the installations are optimised which means that they are longer used and less replaced.

If you are an energy manager or a property portfolio owner and you want to make you buildings more energy efficient, you can contact bcheck to get help!

Make your heating smart, save energy and protect the environment!
