Grundfos and Barghest Building Performance agreed to reduce the energy consumption of cooling systems in Southeast Asia.
Singapore, TechnoBusiness SG (English Edition) ● Grundfos, a global provider of pump solutions and water technology from Bjerringbro, Denmark, on Wednesday (14/7) signed a memorandum of understanding with Barghest Building Performance (BBP), an energy efficiency company based in Singapore.
Grundfos and BBP agreed to deliver and scale efficient, innovative energy across Southeast Asia. The solution can reduce cooling system energy consumption by up to 40%, meeting the region’s urgent need for sustainable cooling solutions.
The new solution focuses on reducing the energy consumption of commercial and industrial climate control systems. Known as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, they are currently one of the most important sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the world.
In Southeast Asia, increasing electricity demand from cooling alone is projected to require around 200 gigawatts of additional generating capacity by 2040, and cooling could account for a 30% share of peak electricity demand in the region.
By leveraging automation, remote monitoring, and Internet of Things technologies, Grundfos and BBP solutions ensure HVAC systems operate in optimal conditions at all times by intuitively managing interactions between the various parts of the system.
That minimizes unnecessary energy use, and in turn helps customers reduce their environmental impact. Grundfos and BBP will seek to expand it throughout Southeast Asia, particularly in Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia.
Fredrik stbye, Group Vice President, Head of FutureLab at Grundfos, said, “Southeast Asia is undergoing rapid industrialization and urbanization, and cooling and ventilation in commercial and industrial buildings will only play a bigger role as we move forward.”●
