Environmental impact is top of the agenda M&E Event


A SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT TO BSEE The authoritative voice of the industry


ollowing the Prime Minister’s announcement that carbon emissions from Government HQs

and offices have been slashed by nearly 14% in just one year, the environmental impact of buildings should be top of the agenda for building services engineers. Combine this with the latest changes to building regulations and stringent carbon emissions targets introduced by the Government; the energy efficiency of a building is set to continue as a highly topical issue throughout 2011 and 2012. In line with the Government’s vast energy efficiency guidelines where existing buildings are concerned, efforts are being made to ensure that buildings remain safe and comfortable, whilst responding to the carbon reduction challenge.


solutions such as smart meters, renewable technologies, sustainable lighting, condensing boilers and cavity wall insulation are increasingly being sought out and implemented to improve buildings. Engineers keen to receive the latest

information and guidance on current UK policy concerning the environmental impact of a building, should visit M&E - The Building Services Event. As the UK’s only dedicated event for all building services to be run in association with CIBSE, the show provides unequivocal access to key building services professionals.

Focus on issues

Supported by NICEIC, HVCA and ECA, M&E-The Building Services Event is expected to attract more than 8,000 attendees with an interest in a range of industry areas including refrigeration, air conditioning, electrical installation, plumbing, heating and ventilation.


addition to building services engineering there is also a clear focus on the issues surrounding safe working practices and the applications of environmental protection. Home to a wealth of free educational content, more than 250 industry leading companies will be exhibiting, including

Mitsubishi Electric Commercial Heating, a pioneer in the development of renewable heat pump technology for the commercial environment. Bosch Security Systems, DEHN (UK) LTD, Dale Power Solutions Plc, Metartec, Rittal and Viconics are also amongst the industry leading exhibitors set to demonstrate their latest products and services at M&E- The Building Services Event, which will also play host to a number of exciting feature areas. Visitors to the show will have the

opportunity to meet and network with hundreds of exhibitors including Remeha Commercial, a leading provider of high performance renewable solutions and high efficiency, ultra low NOx emission commercial boilers. Recent contracts for Remeha include the installation of a Remeha 100kW biomass boiler at the newly opened Visitors’ Centre at the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery at Lostwithiel, to achieve energy efficient, low carbon heating. Visitors can also talk to experts from Baxi Commercial Division about best practice for increased efficiency for multi-occupancy residential buildings. They will be showing the new range of Heat Interface Units (HIU) which control the heating and hot water within each dwelling of a residential block of flats served by a centralised plant room, removing the necessity for individual boilers and allowing quick and easy access for maintenance. Metartec will be launching the latest additions to its critical power product portfolio including a new range of solar devices to make green energy more affordable and accessible to everyone. They will also be talking about their move into the wind energy sector which will see Metartec providing high quality wind energy products and services including wind turbines complete with associated metering.
