The agreement some time back by Nersa granting Eskom to a 25% per annum tariff increase over 3 years, places specifiers and building owners in a very clear position. It is time to implement energy saving.
The inclusive of passive energy efficiency measures in new building projects and retrofits is a clear starting point for all developers thinking sustainability – as early as during the environment control planning and design process. In addition, government and developers need to think about low cost housing. “The fitting of solar geysers to many low cost housing projects is an admirable move, but true energy efficiency in low cost housing will only be effective where the roof is fitted with a ceiling that is insulated, too.”
