Investment in energy efficient buildings reached £60bn in 2014

Total investments in the energy efficient buildings sector reached £60bn in 2014, a recent research report published by financial services firm Standard & Poor’s has been able to reveal.

The interest in energy efficiency has also led to growth in bonds raised by companies such as Schneider Electric which issued €200 million in (£131m) green bonds last month, it states.

The report reads that “Investors are becoming increasingly interested in low carbon investment opportunities – such as energy efficiency projects – which for their part are looking to attract financing.”

However it adds energy efficiency projects like those in the building sector are “less established and still raise questions for investors about how they will be repaid and the credit risk they face”.

In terms of implementing energy efficiency projects, wireless programmable thermostatic radiator valves offer the best ROIs and lowest overall installation costs. The HeatSave wireless TRVs enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve, and, since radiators are individually controlled, occupants are fully capable to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used for longer periods of time (as for example, dining or sitting rooms and kitchens during the night, etc.).

Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.

All in all, the HeatSave TRVs enable users to achieve some pretty impressive savings, as they will help reduce your heating bills by up to 30%, especially when coupled with the HeatingSave Building Energy Management System.
