With a 70-80% increase within the global urban population in the next 35 years, the demand for energy cannot be ignored. Whether it’s lighting; heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC); or controlling water temperature, the largest expected impact is on big buildings and the energy used to properly maintain and condition them.

W. Scott Tew, executive director, Center for Energy Efficiency & Sustainability (CEES) at Ingersoll Rand, recently contributed his views on the importance of managing the process of moving air in big buildings for EnergyCentral. He shares keen insight on industry trends and gives helpful areas of focus for building owners and operators.

“Even though compressed air systems are essential for buildings, they are sometimes ignored until something goes wrong with them or the compressors fail to keep up with rising air demand. There is also a lack of ownership in many companies, as employees do not have a person spearheading energy efficiency improvements in their building,” Tew said.
