Today’s challenges
Our energy future
starts now
Buildings, a major source of global
energy savings
Rising use of heating, air conditioning, lighting, and information
technologies has made our buildings increasingly energy hungry. These
systems far outstrip other applications as the number-one consumer of
electricity. In fact, electricity accounts for up to 50% of CO2 emissions
attributable to residential and commercial buildings.
Under the Kyoto Protocol, industrialized countries have agreed to curb
their CO2 emissions by 5.2% by 2012 and by 75% by 2050. Buildings
are today a major source of potential energy savings that can help us
meet these targets and protect our environment.

Greater energy efficiency starts today
Reducing our energy
consumption by 30%
by 2020 would eliminate
the need for 1,000 new
power plants
If we are to meet our Kyoto targets, we must start today. Boosting
energy efficiency is the quickest, cheapest, and cleanest way to reduce
both consumption and CO2 emissions.

:2
Global energy demand
is expected to double
by 2050
At the same time, we must reduce
CO2 emissions by half if we are to limit
the effects of climate change
Making your building more energy efficient does not necessarily involve
costly and disruptive changes to your installation. Based on existing
building systems, it is possible to reduce energy consumption by an
impressive 30% simply by implementing easy-to-use services and
technologies already available—but the time to start is now!
This guide is designed to point designers and other professionals to
the right solution for each building’s unique needs. Inside, you will find
a comprehensive range of solutions to make your energy safer, more
reliable, more efficient, and cleaner.

Energy efficiency:
tighter regulations,
new incentives
Today’s challenges
New regulations now require energy-efficiency
measures and more energy-efficient equipment
Energy efficiency is no longer an option. The Kyoto Protocol has spurred governments
worldwide to pass legislation to ensure smarter energy use in buildings.
The European Union, for example, made a firm commitment in March 2007 to reduce
CO2 emissions by 20% by 2020. Part of a package of measures known as “3x20 by 2020”,
the reduction will come with a 20% improvement in energy efficiency and a shift in the EU’s
energy mix to include 20% renewable energy.
20% reduction
in CO2 emissions
20% improvement
Other countries have adopted a slightly longer timeline and more ambitious targets,
aiming for a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050.
in energy efficiency
Reaching these targets will require real change, and governments are stepping up their
efforts to legislate, regulate, and set standards to improve energy efficiency.
renewable resources
New legislation, new rules
The new trend toward tighter energy-efficiency
legislation started with the Kyoto Protocol.
Laws like the US Energy Policy Act and the
European Union Energy Directive effectively set
the rules for our energy future.
Public- and private-sector initiatives
• EU standard EN 15232
This standard is used to estimate the impact of
building automation systems on active energy
efficiency, stating potential savings on heating
and electricity according to the type of building.

• White certificates
White certificates are granted for energyefficiency measures. Some governments
require all electrical and gas utilities over a
certain size to provide proof that they have
helped customers reach a particular level of
energy savings. Utilities that meet minimum
requirements can then sell their surplus
certificates to other utilities.

• LEED
LEED is a green building rating system
developed by the US Green Building Council
(USGBC). It provides a suite of standards
for environmentally-sustainable building
construction and renovation practices.
Since its inception in 1998, LEED has
grown to encompass over 50 US states and
30 countries.
Financial incentives
Many governments are using financial
incentives or market mechanisms to encourage
energy efficiency. These include tax credits,
interest-free government loans, partial sales tax
exemptions on energy-efficiency equipment
and services, subsidized bank loans, and
local grants from government agencies and
organizations in the private sector.
The new regulations will have an impact
on all buildings
All buildings—both existing and new—and all
energy systems are concerned:
> Lighting
> Electrical distribution
> Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning
> Cooling systems

A commitment to energy savings
Ask any building professional. So-called “passive” energy-efficiency
measures like insulation or low-energy-consumption equipment are not
enough to meet the challenges our energy future has in store.
Today, it is a building’s net energy consumption that counts:
the difference between energy consumed and energy produced.
And, to ensure that the buildings of the future are net energy producers,
we must reduce consumption and offset what we do use by producing
energy from renewable sources.
We can help you achieve net-producer status, and generate substantial
savings by optimizing the 3 pillars of energy-efficiency:
> Reduce consumption by implementing active energy-efficiency
solutions
> Produce clean energy from renewable resources
> Optimize consumption by using the latest technologies
We can help you make savings!

You can’t manage what you can’t measure. Measuring is the
first essential step in raising awareness and changing habits
and behaviours.
• Unplanned, unmanaged shutdowns of equipment and processes
• Lack of automation and regulation for applications like motors and
heating
• Unpredictability of user behaviours
Reduce energy consumption
100%
• Use automation and control systems to ensure that you
only use the energy you really need

The Varset system includes a bank of 200 kvar capacitors,
which are automatically switched on or off depending on
the power factor detected. A current detector measures
consumption.
The system guarantees a power factor greater than 0.92,
regardless of load, raising the actual consumption limit to
230 kW (250 x 0.92=230 kW), or 55kW of available energy.

The AccuSine PCS is fed from a specific outgoing feeder. It detects
and analyzes the current upline in real time from the non-linear
loads and sends out a compensating current via its power line.

Depending on your business and type
of building, HVAC can account for over 40%
of energy consumption. You can reduce
HVAC energy consumption and
sustain optimal consumption levels
You can meet today’s demand for energy
efficiency, occupant comfort, and compliance with
standards by implementing one or more of the
following solutions:
> Install variable speed drives on pumps and fans
to adjust energy use to actual need.
> Design control architectures that facilitate
operation and interaction of heating, ventilation,
air conditioning, and window blinds, zone by zone.
> Choose equipment that improves energy
quality by eliminating power surges and reducing
harmonics.
Depending on whether you choose simple, standalone control devices, a comprehensive building
management system, or a solution somewhere
in between, you can reduce the amount
of energy your HVAC system uses
by up to 30%.

Solution
The solution consists in using variable speed drives (VSD)
to adjust exhaust operation to the amount of activity in the
kitchen.
Fan speed is controlled according to air temperature.
A sensor inside the exhaust hood detects air temperature,
and an Altivar 12 variable speed drive adjusts the exhaust fan
motor speed.
The cooler the air, the slower the fan runs, down to a
minimum ventilation level. The exhaust hood is automatically
turned up or down to meet actual needs, resulting in
substantial savings.
An optical smoke sensor can be added to boost the
system’s regulation capabilities. This configuration requires
an additional control system.

Solution
Use speed drives to regulate the
tower’s fan and pump
The best way to control air-water exchange in a cooling tower is
to use variable speed drives to control the tower’s fan and pump,
eliminating additional maintenance-hungry mechanical systems
while meeting the tower’s needs. A PLC regulates fan airflow and
pump volume via the variable speed drives.
This solution uses up to 50% less energy than direct-start
fans and pumps and eases maintenance.
Over a given season, the fan and pump motors must operate
at full speed just 2% to 5% of the time—the rest of the time
this energy is wasted. Direct-start motors require additional
mechanical systems to solve problems like fan blade rotation due
to wind, or additional resistance due to freezing.
This solution uses 20% less energy than two-speed motors
and also improves maintenance.
While two-speed motors offer a partial solution to energy
consumption issues, they do nothing to resolve maintenance issues.

without affecting occupant comfort. The fact that
HVAC systems are often set up by floor further
complicates the situation. I need a flexible solution
that can adapt to fluctuating occupancy while
using only the amount of energy that is actually
needed.
Solution
The solution optimizes regulation regardless of fluctuating
occupancy patterns. To fine tune energy consumption even
further using presence detectors, automatic blind controllers,
and timers, a building management system would be required.
In this type of setup, the variable speed drives and sensors
would be connected to the BMS via a communication bus.

A controller is programmed with each area’s occupation

on, via the controller, when natural light levels are too
low. The system is flexible enough to allow occupants
to override the restriction, switching lights on for short
periods of time as needed.

Each area is outfitted with the usual light fixtures and
push-button on/off switches, and is powered by an
electrical circuit controlled by an impulse relay that
receives commands from a controller. The controller also
includes digital inputs from one or more twilight switches
that constantly measure natural light levels.
Depending on the configuration, the controller can either
automatically switch lights on in a given area, depending
on time of day, or periodically send lights-off commands
when natural light is high, or when the programmed
occupation time is over. Flexible programming ensures
an optimal balance between energy savings and user
comfort.

• There is enough
natural light for

so the lights remain
switched off until
5.41 pm, when the
natural light is no
longer sufficient.
• In the meantime,
Mr Smith switches on
the lights in his office
when he arrives.
A short time later, at
8.50 am, the lights
are switched off
automatically due to
good natural light.
Mr Smith switches
them on again to
perform a task at his
desk, and the lights
remain on for 15
minutes.
• From 4.55 pm on,
when natural light is
lower, Mr Smith can
again leave the lights
on as long as he
wants.
• At 7 pm, the

The solution is based on simple digital kilowatt-hour meters
to track energy consumption. Users simply read consumption
information directly from the meters’ displays to identify the
leading sources of overconsumption for each area of the
building.
These cost-effective pulse meters are designed for
sub-metering of active energy consumed by a single phase or
three-phase electric circuit with or without distributed neutral.
Direct measurement up to 40/63 A is possible. Above 63A,
a current transformer must be used. The meters can be
connected to a PC or PLC for analysis and reporting.

breakers are equipped with Breaker Status Control Module
(BSCM) input/output modules, which are hooked up to the remote
control (MTc) that opens and closes the Compact NSX.
Reduce energy consumption
For
professionals
My business is flexible enough to schedule
certain energy-consuming activities during less
expensive off-peak hours. What’s the best way
to take advantage of this opportunity?
The solution is built around a PC or PLC that controls load
shedding. The controller is used to generate load shedding orders
based on the electrical variables of the entire electrical installation,
taking into account time bands, operating, or even processrelated information. The system communicates with selected
Compact NSX circuit breakers. Power to outgoing loads is cut for
a given amount of time, and selected loads are restarted at more
optimal times chosen by the controller.

Hilton Americas-Houston becomes one of
the world’s most energy-efficient hotels
For this 24-story facility with 1,200 guest rooms
and over 91,000 square feet (84,500 m2) of
meeting space, Schneider Electric provided a
comprehensive Andover Continuum™ building
management system with a unique, energysaving guest room control sequence.
Hilton Copenhagen Airport automates
HVAC according to guest check-in and
check-out
For this five-star, 382-room hotel, Schneider
Electric focused on finding a practical way to
key the HVAC system to guest arrivals and
departures. The solution used a LonWorks®based TAC Vista™ system and integrated
HVAC control with the hotel’s booking system
to trigger heating and cooling adjustments
when guests check in and out.
For the user
Your hotel’s Property Management System (PMS) handles
reservations, but it can also provide information about the status
of each room: rented, rented and unoccupied, or rented and
occupied. When the PMS and the guestroom management
system interface, this information can be used to optimize room
management and even save guest preferences for automatic
customization of settings when the guest checks in.
Solution
Schneider Electric offers both guestroom management systems
and complete building management systems, and delivers the
expertise needed to integrate these systems into third-party
Property Management Systems like Micros Fidelio and Opera.
Information concerning functions like temperature, lighting and
electricity—managed at room level—can be monitored and
controlled in line with information from the Property Management
System, for instance:
• Unrented: Room is in economy mode. Room lights are turned off.
Room heating or air conditioning is automatically lowered. Window
blinds and ventilation are set to maintain optimal conditions while
the room is unoccupied.
• Rented and unoccupied: Room is in pre-comfort mode.
Temperature and air quality can be automatically set to a position
closer to comfort mode.
• Rented and occupied: All room settings can be adjusted by the
guest.

Install an intelligent guestroom
management system to control
lighting, HVAC, and blinds
Solution
This intelligent system controls lighting, HVAC, and blinds according
to guest presence, ensuring maximum comfort via the following
functions:
• Advanced control of all room equipment such as lighting, heating,
air-conditioning, curtains, and blinds
• Management of hotel functions like do-not-disturb and make-upthe-room orders
• The capacity to communicate with other hotel systems
Energy use is managed automatically according to occupancy,
resulting in reduced energy consumption. Of course, HVAC is a
top consumer of energy, but so is lighting. Guests are usually only
in their hotel rooms for around eight hours per day, therefore, the
times when the room is unoccupied represent a major opportunity
to save energy without affecting guest comfort.
The solution is based on a KNX/EIB bus system, which connects
all the different sensors and actuators inside the room to form an
intelligent system.
• Sensors: key card holder, presence detector, thermostat, open/
close windows
• Actuators: lighting control, air conditioning control
• A single, easy-to-use interface, from simple push buttons to
user-friendly touch screens

Heating is programmed on an hourly basis and setpoints are checked
to ensure that building temperature is lowered at night and raised before
occupants arrive in the morning. Presence detectors plus automatic lighting
shutoff functions with re-start capabilities provide further energy savings even
when employees work after normal office hours.
Daylight and presence detectors are used to optimize regulation of lighting
and air conditioning in each individual office. Lighting, window blind, and cold
beams are managed by system scenarios such as presence, natural light,
arrival (first occupant), departure (last occupant), and others.
The solution enables facilities managers to view the status of, monitor, and
operate all systems throughout the building, including alarms, temperatures,
faults, on/off, and more.
The TAC Continuum system offers a display detailing energy consumption
throughout the building, providing the specific information needed to raise
occupant awareness of energy consumption and savings.

South of France: farm building gets rooftop solar panels
The southern-facing rooftop of a farm outbuilding measuring just 147 square
meters was the perfect location to install 105 175-watt solar panels covering a
total area of 139 square meters.
Because total power was just over 18 kW, a three-phase connection to the grid
was installed.
The total cost of the equipment, installation, and hook-up to the grid was
€90,000.
I want green certification for my farm.
I would like to install rooftop solar panels
on one of my outbuildings, but only if it is
profitable for the business.
The installation is expected to generate 21,000 kWh per year, sold back to the
grid at €0.60 per kWh, for total annual revenue of more than €12,000.

For the user
Solution
Convert the energy generated by
solar panels into alternating current
and connect to the three-phase grid
The system consists of photovoltaic panels that produce
between 30 kW and 50 kW of electricity by transforming solar
energy into direct electric current. This “convert, connect,
protect” system is built around prefabricated, interconnected
panels:
• Panel strings are interconnected via junction boxes to pool
the electricity generated by the photovoltaic installation
• An inverter then converts the direct current produced by
the panel strings into alternating current
• Factory-assembled, pre-wired protection units ensure the
installation is safe for both people and property.

Madagascar village
gets solar energy
In early 2009, solar
panels were installed
in a mountain village
in Madagascar. The
village, which counts
about 20 houses,
was too remote to be
connected up to the
main grid. The goal
was to provide 50 W
for each household
three hours per day—
a total of 1,000 W for
the village or 3 kWh
per day.
According to a
survey conducted
after the project was
completed, the local
population, which
helped with the work,
was satisfied with
the results. A team of
two local electricians
received training from
Schneider Electric
Madagascar. They
did the wiring in all of
the houses and now
handle maintenance
and repairs.
