How control systems can increase energy efficiency and lower costs
Advances in building construction and product technology have enabled building design to be more energy efficient than ever before. Until recently, HVAC systems and lighting presented the greatest opportunities for energy conservation. Designers and manufacturers have been implementing solutions to reduce the power consumption of these systems for decades. Office equipment, appliances and plug-in lighting loads are the next major area for potential reduction of energy consumption.
