Johnson energy analyser set for Mideast launch
Dubai, July 25, 2009
Johnson Controls, a leading provider of energy efficiency solutions, has announced the Mideast launch of its system that provides organisations with the capability to analyse energy trends and calculate greenhouse gas levels.
Johnson’s Energy and Emissions Management System measures, manages and forecasts activities related to energy cost, consumption, energy efficiency projects, fleet emissions, and waste.
Organisations can receive easy-to-understand, auditable reports to validate incoming data.
Delivered by Johnson Controls Global WorkPlace Solutions, the Energy and Emissions Management System is Web-based and incorporates one of the most advanced management software programs available to meet greenhouse gas emission reporting standards, according to Groom Energy Solutions, a renewable and energy efficiency service provider.
The system currently manages $1 billion of annual energy spend and annually monitors 63 million metric tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions for 5,000 buildings located in 88 countries.
Over the last eight years, the system has captured more than 8,000 energy and cost savings initiatives -- nearly half of which were achieved for global companies including Pfizer, Wyeth, Dell and Xerox – resulting in savings of $1 billion and 6.2 million metric tonnes of CO2 or the equivalent.
The Energy and Emissions Management System is user-friendly, global system that includes international support of data entry, said a statement.
In addition, a greenhouse gas inventory module automates carbon accounting based on the World Research Institute and World Business Council for Sustainable Development GHG Protocol.
The GHG module consolidates all sources of greenhouse gas emissions, baseline adjustments, and credit trading impacts to generate a transparent, verifiable greenhouse gas inventory.
“Our vision of creating a more comfortable, safe and sustainable world defines our businesses, our people and the way in which we work with our customers and business partners,” said Magdy A Mekky, vice president and managing director, Middle East.
“Globally, our commitment to ‘Efficiency Now’ remains the guiding principle for our businesses and this project is a culmination of our efforts at furthering the cause of sustainable development. Our sustainability initiatives are practical and find their basis in our triple bottom line which focuses on economic prosperity, social responsibility and environmental stewardship,” he added.
“More than ever before, efficiency has become the new industry metric,” Mekky continued.
“People who design, build, own and operate buildings need to not only control energy costs, reduce the environmental impact and increase the value of their buildings, but do it more efficiently. We provide ingenious products, services and solutions for companies to implement efficiency measures now - because it’s never been more important,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
