eu.bac Position Paper – Ecodesign Work Plan 2015-2017
Buildings are built for people, therefore people are using energy, not the buildings themselves. The best way to address this is to give the people the means to control their energy ensuring their needs are met. Good level of control of building services ensures that energy savings are realised independently of whether the building is in use or not and that high indoor environment quality is delivered where and when required and at exact levels (i.e. thermal comfort, indoor air quality, lighting and acoustic environment).
