2017 New Zealand GreenDay

ebm-papst is hosting its 2017 New Zealand GreenDay on the 11th of October at the Pasifika Centre, in the North Campus of Manukau Institute of Technology, Auckland. The event, jointly organised by ebm-papst and Manukau Institute of Technology, commences at 9am and concludes at 2pm.

GreenDay is an initiative of ebm-papst, facilitating conversation about energy reduction and improved efficiencies. The idea was pioneered by trainees at ebm-papst acting as Energy Scouts, who emphasise that the intention of the one-day event is to commence the process of long-term sustainable action.

In its sixth year worldwide, it has grown to become a networking opportunity in Australia and New Zealand for HVAC&R consultants, facility managers, contractors, end users, building owners, business owners, apprentices and students.

The opening session, which features Martina Heine from ebm-papst A&NZ and Mike Hopkin from Energy Management Association of New Zealand, answers the question, “How can I apply energy efficiency?”

After morning tea, HVAC&R case studies on “Energy efficiency in action” will be presented by Greg Lewis from Countdown, Lance Jimmieson from Jackson Engineering, James Darby from Resource Data Management NZ, and Matthew Darby from Climate Control Companies Association NZ.

Drew Roberts from EECA Business and Chris Woods from Auckland University will be presenting on “Energy efficiency in your business” after a networking lunch.

About EC Upgrades
EC Upgrades is a division within ebm-papst A&NZ which was established in response to the high energy consumption of HVAC equipment in a standard office building. HVAC accounts for approximately 67% of all energy consumption of a standard office building . Improving the efficiency of an office building’s HVAC systems can directly contribute to large energy-savings and improved carbon footprint. Older buildings often have fan systems which require extensive and expensive maintenance of fan belts and pulleys, bearings and impellers as well as contributing to high energy costs. By replacing old, inefficient, high maintenance fan systems with efficient and maintenance-free direct drive EC fans from ebm-papst, energy-savings of up to 93% can be achieved when speed control is used. EC fans have proven to be up to 70% more efficient than AC fans, with increased savings available through speed control.
