The building façade design, highly efficient HVAC systems and LED lighting allow for 40% savings in energy use in comparison to a conventional building with a similar use and surface area. The centralised HVAC system has built-in control system via sensors that promotes maximum comfort for occupants.
On the roof, there is a 319 m2 installation of photovoltaic panels for electricity generation, with 60kW peak installed power and a sanitary hot water production system that runs on solar energy supplied by thermal solar panels at 2033 kWh/month. Overall renewable energy production from all these strategies amounts to 80,823 kWh per year, which offsets 6.4% of the total energy consumption of the building.
Moreover, oxxeo will offset emissions from electricity consumption with “Green tags”, which certify that 35% of the energy consumed by the building over 2 years will be offset by investment in the cost of Green tags in renewable energy plants.
