Building Energy Management Systems (or BEMS) are computer-based systems that help to manage, control and monitor building technical services (HVAC, lighting etc) and the energy consumption of devices used by the building. They provide the information and the tools that Building Managers need both to understand the energy usage of their buildings and to control and improve their buildings’ energy performance.
Trend are a recognised market leader in building energy management systems which are supplied, engineered and commissioned by an approved global network of partners.
The principal role of a BMS/BEMS is to regulate and monitor heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC control) and often lighting too.
A BMS/BEMS can efficiently control as much as 84% of a building’s energy usage.
The main advantage of a Trend system is that all the range from IQ1 to the current IQ4 systems are fully backward compatible which eliminates the concern that the system may become redundant or be difficult to replace/repair in the future.
This also means that if you have an existing Trend system you can carry out extensions and upgrades to acquire the latest technology without having to replace the entire system.
Trend BMS/BEMS are found in many types of buildings including hospitals, schools, colleges, office blocks, entertainment facilities, factories and shops.
Suitable for the largest building complexes and multi-site applications, they are still cost-effective for even small premises.
