Trend BEMS saves Matrix House £160,000 a year
At Matrix House in Basingstoke, a Trend Building Energy Management System (BEMS) installed in 2003 has cut the building’s energy use by 18% – saving almost 1 million kWh of electricity and reducing its energy bills by £160,000 every year.
Appointed to improve the office complex’s efficiency and make long term cost savings, Powell Systems Engineering replaced the defunct BEMS with a high performance Trend system. Offering enhanced energy efficiency, financial savings and comfort levels – the installation delivered a return on investment in just 14 months.
“The differences that the system has made to the operation and comfort conditions in the building are incredible, as is the amount of money we have saved,” said Graham Savage, Facilities Manager at Matrix House. “Also, because we consider the BEMS to be a work in progress, we can expect further savings in the future.”
