SMART WATER SAVINGS FOR THE GOOD OF YOUR BUILDING AND THE ENVIRONMENT
At the same time that you lower your building’s water bills, you are also performing a major eco deed for our common good.
AVERAGE SAVINGS ACHIEVED BY
- Water consumption per fixture down 40-80%
- Overall water consumption down 20-25%
- Water and wastewater bills down 20-25%
- Less hot water usage reduces water heating costs by 15%
- Less hot water usage reduces total energy costs of the building by 5%
- Water consumption down 50 litres a day per head
- Three-person family saves on average 50,000 litres of water a year
AN INVESTMENT THAT PAYS FOR ITSELF FAST
The Energy solution pays for itself in just 6-12 months, after which your building can accumulate significant savings that can be spent on other projects to improve the condition, value and quality of your building. Some housing companies have even used their savings to lower the monthly fees for residents, much to the delight of shareholders. Find out how much your building could save by having us perform a condition survey.
A REMEDY FOR INCREASING WATER COSTS
It is easy to convince residents and decision-makers about the Energo solution, whether they are interested mainly in the environment, comfort or costs. The strongest argument for the Energo solution is the rapid rise in the cost of water, wastewater fees and heat energy with no end in sight. With the help of Energo your building can control costs and balance your annual budget.
LESS H20 = LESS CO2
Approximately 30-40% of a building’s heating energy is used for heating water, so the Energo solution can also radically reduce CO2 emissions caused by heating. Streamlining water consumption can also lower CO2 emissions caused by pumping water and wastewater, so the Energo solution really is a significant eco deed.
TARGET SAVINGS OF 50 LITRES A DAY
Saving water is of vital importance to both the environment and the economy.
The Energo solution cuts water consumption by an average of 50 litres per person per day, so a family of three would save 150 litres a day. In one year the amount of water saved could fill up an entire tanker truck.
For example, in Finland if every person would save 50 litres of water a day, Finland would conserve 270,000 cubic metres of water a day. In a single year this would add up to almost 100 million cubic metres. If all this water was to be transported by tanker trucks, lined up nose to tail they would circle the entire globe. Another line of tanker trucks the same length would be formed by all the savings in wastewater.
Consider these facts and join the programme for the good of your building and all of us together! The Energo solution makes it easy and cost effective to achieve the target savings.
WHAT DOES SMART WATER MEAN?
Saving water is a hot topic around the world these days. The biggest challenge is the alarming decrease in clean fresh water. The amount of groundwater is diminishing. Fortunately, Finland is a world leader in water expertise. This sector is growing rapidly on a global scale. New innovations are being introduced across a broad front. This is reflected in the new terminology that we have listed below.
A global development path within water expertise that is seeking and developing smart, innovative and ecologically sustainable solutions to the world’s water challenges through science, research and technology.
Clean technology. Products, services, processes and technologies that prevent or reduce harmful environmental impacts through such methods as recycling, developing renewable energies and the sustainable use of natural resources.
Best Available Techniques that are used to reduce harmful environmental impacts and save energy.
LESS IS MORE
Originally used as a slogan by designers and architects to describe minimalistic and clean solutions, the term is now used also to describe how reducing unnecessary waste can increase our opportunities to manage climate change.
The streamlining of recycling, energy efficiency and material flows with the goal of achieving a low emissions environment, a more sensible use of raw materials and eco-friendly consumption patterns.
