Facilities Show announces largest ever Energy Management Zone

Facilities Show’s largest ever Energy Management Zone


Gain insight into your organisation’s energy use, technologies and how to improve profits by reducing energy costs at the largest ever Energy Management Zone, taking place at Facilities Show 2012 (www.facilitiesshow.com).

Buderus, powerPerfector, Ardenham Energy, The PURE Water Company, Purple Energy, EOS Energy, IPU Group and Electric Heating Company are amongst a raft of leading energy management companies¹ set to showcase the industry’s latest innovations this May (15 – 17 May 2012, NEC Birmingham).

Energy costs can comprise the largest controllable operating expense in commercial buildings—about 30% of total operating costs². Helping to boost every organisation’s energy efficiency, the Energy Management Zone will provide visitors with an introduction to the latest products as well as invaluable advice to help them manage their energy consumption sustainably and cost effectively.

Angus Robertson, CEO of powerPerfector said: “FMs can bring about the drive to efficiency in the built environment faster than any other sector. Energy Performance Contracts and ESCOs are starting to penetrate the market and it is this approach of taking the capital cost out of a client’s energy strategy that will reap rewards for FMs and suppliers.”

Ardenham Energy, sponsor of the Facilities Show’s popular Sustainable FM Academy, was the very first renewable energy company approved by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme. The organisation gives advice on design and supply, install and maintain the full range of renewable systems.

Harry Shepherd-Cross, director of Ardenham Energy, said: “For us, Facilities Show is the perfect opportunity to discuss new ideas with the FM community, and to allow potential clients to quiz our in-house experts, including structural engineers, technology specialists, designers and planners. Facilities managers are critical to the success of renewable energy technologies and decarbonising the UK’s building stock. They have the greatest impact on the long-term performance of any building.”

IPU Group will be exhibiting its Fuel Conditioning range and will be on hand to showcase their Fuel Management Systems, which use the latest technology to regulate the contaminant levels in diesel fuel. Andy Hill, Marketing Manager from IPU Group said: “From start to finish, IPU Group offers a complete solution; from a series of specialised testing services and products specifically designed to detect and measure fuel contamination, to use of biocides for microbial infection, to bespoke Diesel Defence fuel polishing systems.”

As one of the UK’s most dynamic and innovative heating and hot water solution providers, Electric Heating Company will also be exhibiting its product range. Its recently launched Slim Jim Electric Flow Boiler, which has attracted considerable attention in the heating market, will be showcased at the exhibition.

David Lee, Director at Electric Heating Company said: “Recent regulations regarding the visibility of Gas Boiler Flues in voids has encouraged landlords, engineers and homeowners to look for alternatives to traditional gas central heating. With electric heating becoming a far more important element in the UK’s heating mix, controllability will become increasingly important in electric systems.”

Attending for the first time this year, is Purple Energy. General Manager, Mark Stafford is confident that visitors to the show will see the potential benefits of working with Purple Energy both in terms of reducing their carbon footprint and saving huge amounts of money on their bills:

“There are very few other companies that have the skills and experience to carry out the range of installations that we have. Whether its small domestic heat pumps or large commercial biomass projects, we have worked hard to ensure that we deliver highly efficient, reliable and cost effective energy systems”, he said.

Airdri, the responsible provider of sustainable hand drying systems, will be introducing what it claims is ‘possibly the quietest, fast dry hand dryer in the world’, The Classic+ MkII, at The Facilities Show. Quality designed with the environment in mind, this fast drying, energy efficient hand dryer, has the lowest noise levels in its class.

Trudi Osborne, Business Development at Airdri said: “Airdri is committed to a continuous programme of research and development.  Caring for the environment is our priority which is why we continually strive to improve the energy efficiency of our dryers.”

“With an ever expanding job remit, keeping abreast of the latest legislation, best practice and new products and solutions in the energy management sector is no mean feat”, says Adrian Newton, Portfolio Director for Safety & Building Management at UBM. “The Energy Management at Facilities Show has been created to help make FMs’ jobs and lives easier by bringing together all the latest innovations, advice and guidance under one roof”, he continues.
