Camfil Energy Consultant, Peter Dyment is to sit on the steering committee of a new EU supported project known as iSERV
The purpose of iSERV is to improve the current method of identifying energy saving opportunities in HVAC systems. iSERV is the largest project to be supported by Intelligent Energy Europe. The first full meeting took place in September over in Hungary, with the programme set to run for three years.
Complementing the EPBD policy of mandatory inspection and reporting every 5 years, iSERV’s ultimate objective is to minimise the need for inspections where an appropriate level of energy efficiency performance has been demonstrated. This method is suitable for all buildings with one or many individual HVAC systems.
Peter Dyment, Energy Consultant, Camfil Farr said: “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to sit on the iSERV steering committee. The initial meeting introduced an industry experienced steering committee which participated actively in the iSERV partners meeting as well as in the first public workshop held for stakeholders.”
“Over the introduction period, the registration of sites from around the EU Member States will enable a profile of energy usage for various end use activities to be established. Energy benchmarks can then be calculated for each type of activity and the priority for effective use of ECO’s can be established. The initial number of sites for each country is expected to be around a hundred for each the sixteen EU member states.”
