Energy Efficient Retrofits and Green Building Practices
According to the recent survey more and more concern being expressed throughout the Middle East regions that the power generation companies are suffering with shortage of power during the peek hours and consequently unable to meet the power demand. Moreover, the increase in demand is also causing rise in pollution levels. Therefore, the subject of energy efficient retrofits and green building practices is becoming increasingly important. Based on the latest walkthrough energy audit it is proven that 65% of electricity is consumed by Air Conditioning System resulting average energy consumption by 250kWh/year/sqmeter of a residential complex.
