Reduce Energy Cost by Going Green

Greener Buildings

Reducing energy consumption is not only good for the bottom line, it is also good for the environment, and in some cases, needed for compliance with government initiatives. In Taiwan, for example, the government is actively promoting various energy efficiency and conservation programs, with a target of increasing building energy efficiency by 33 percent by 2025.1

In the U.S., 30 percent of the energy used in an average commercial building is wasted, making the potential to reduce energy consumption enormous. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Building Technologies Office (BTO) is targeting a 20-percent energy-use reduction in commercial buildings by 2020, and even greater savings by 2030.

Cost Savings

Tatung, an IoT solution provider, offers a cost-effective way to reduce the amount of energy wasted in commercial buildings. In a building owned by an affiliate company, ECS, the solution is expected to save about eight percent in power usage during the first year and around 20 to 30 percent thereafter, following further efficiency enhancements.
