While it is estimated that worldwide, buildings are responsible for a third of all carbon emissions, these alarming statistics has prompted South Africa to commit to reducing its carbon emission by 34% by 2020 and 42% by 2025.
The built environment contributes the bulk of these emissions and its being targeted by the government to contribute to this reduction. The commercial sector uses 10% of the country's electricity and represents a significant savings opportunity given that, historically, most buildings were not designed with energy efficiency in mind.
South African energy solutions provider, Optimum PM, is offering a technologically advanced service at a price that companies can afford, including environmentally friendly and energy-optimised solutions.
Optimising available energy
Over the years, Optimum PM chief executive officer and founder, John Shiri has forged close working relationships with world-class global suppliers, to offer South African residential, commercial and industrial clients a first-world, low-energy product range of LED lighting, intelligent solar powered devices and energy monitoring systems, as well as audio visual or home theatre systems, outdoor landscaping features, security and surveillance and building automation; all with one goal in mind - saving on electricity.
According to Shiri, it is not about energy saving by switching off the power; rather it is about energy optimisation. "We as electricity consumers still want to have all the modern conveniences while being environmentally responsible, and it's possible through clever technology solutions engineered across the globe today," says Shiri.
"We supply lifestyle technology solutions to personal clients looking at enhancing their households and industrial or commercial customers looking to enhance their working environments, as well as enhancing life for communal communities, while being environmentally responsible" adds Shiri.
The advantage with Optimum PM is that they start with electrical monitoring solutions. This start enables clients to get real time information on the power usage and conduct analysis to understand their power use.
