The key challenges for commercial buildings over the next twenty years are energy efficiency and carbon reduction. The Australian Government is focused on a 26-28% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2005 levels by 2030.

This goal is the common driver behind much of the current legislation and initiatives established by government which are now impacting on the built environment. These include:

  • Minimum energy performance requirements for new buildings and major refurbishment.
  • Energy ratings for commercial buildings.
  • Commercial Building Disclosure
  • HVAC High Efficiency Systems Strategy (HVAC HESS)

As a result of these factors, building designers, managers and owners must still comply with legislation while balancing the requirement to provide comfortable, productive environments for occupants.

Buildings account for 23% of Australia’s emissions according to Australian Sustainable Built Environment Council (ASBEC) – with cooling regarded as one of the most energy-hungry factors. Fortunately, a number of technologies are available for air conditioning a building, and one of the longest-established of these available are chillers and chilled water systems.
