Building needs energy coordinator
Buildings can save a lot of energy. In order to realize the energy savings, an experienced energy manager is necessary.
BetterWorldSolutions asked three coordinators what they realized.
An energy coordinator helps companies, organizations and individuals to save on their energy bills.
He or she understands how power plants work, knows which measures do work and is able to calculate the energy saving opportunities.
Often, simple steps are needed to realize significant savings on the energy bill. Eindhoven municipality appointed an energy coordinator. The energy savings resulted in savings of millions of euros.
Patrick Farm operates as an energy coordinator at the Department of Buildings and Installations at the Hague.
“I have three jobs,” says Hoeve.
- First I am responsible for the operational management of the buildings and installations, such as accounts and connections
- Second is to achieve the municipal targets. Hague’s ambition is to reduce energy consumption by 12%. For this I have to identify options, make proposals and supervise projects
- His third task is accelerating the circular economy. The municipality wants to be climate neutral by 2040. Therefore it is driven to realize energy efficiencies, solar panels in the city and expansion of the heating network.
Suzanne Oudmaijer works as an energy coordinator at the Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam. She strives to raise the energy of the buildings at a higher level. What actions are currently used in the AMC?
We adjust the ventilation control according to the working hours. We are planning to introduce LED lighting in the hospital and solar panels above the P5 car park.
Especially existing buildings can still save a lot of energy. This will not require the most complex solutions.
Leonard Tersteeg helps companies to realize energy savings. “We advice to metal companies, but also wholesalers, car companies, and schools. The energy bill is on average 33,000 to 50,000 euros.
With his advice, companies saved thousands of euros. Simple measures, like software monitoring of energy consumption and adjusting the lighting, are saving 70% in gas and 35% in electricity.
