Steve Harrison, president of the Building Controls Industry Association, which is organising the event with the Building & Engineering Services Association, says, ‘Building-services equipment is responsible for over 80% of energy consumption in commercial buildings. With new technology boosting the capability for energy conservation, it is imperative that users understand this potential and transfer that knowledge into real savings. This is exactly the aim of the Building Services Summit.’
