From the Publisher
Managing the consumption and conservation of energy in buildings
must now become the concern of both building managers and
occupants. The provision of lighting, hot water supply,
communications, cooking, space heating and cooling accounts for 45
per cent of UK energy consumption.
Energy Management and Operating Costs in Buildings
introduces the reader to the principles of managing and conserving
energy consumpton in buildings people use for work or leisure.
Energy consumption is considered for the provision of space
heating, hot water, supply ventilation and air conditioning. The
author introduces the use of standard performance indicators and
energy consumption yardsticks, and discusses the use and
application of degree days.
