Driving decarbonisation with CAREL’s solutions for smart buildings

The European Green Deal represents the main direction that Europe has taken to achieve complete decarbonisation of its economy. As part of this ambitious initiative, intermediate targets have been set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Buildings, which account for 40% of total energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions in Europe, are key elements in this transition. The challenge is twofold: to renovate existing buildings, considering that more than 50% of buildings constructed before 1975 will still be in use after 2050, and to promote sustainable new building practices.


Challenges and opportunities for HVAC

Among the various challenges faced, it is worth noting that the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is the main source of energy consumption in buildings. Improving HVAC efficiency is therefore crucial not only for decarbonisation, but also for fulfilling comfort, health and quality-of-life requirements. In this context, the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) represents the main driver, introducing the requirement to adopt solutions for monitoring and controlling air quality and energy consumption in medium and large-sized buildings.


The CAREL solution

CAREL, a leader with over 50 years’ experience in optimising air conditioning systems, is positioned firmly in the centre of this transformation. The company has expanded its vision from management of individual units to the entire system, offering a complete solution for the control, automation and monitoring of indoor air quality and energy consumption in commercial buildings.


CAREL’s technology stands out for both being “open” to integration with third-party systems and easy to integrate into higher level systems. It offers a flexible, modular and scalable solution, adaptable to both new constructions and retrofits on existing buildings.


RED optimise: the Cloud platform for advanced services

The heart of the CAREL proposal is the RED optimise platform for cloud services, responding to the management needs of chains of commercial properties. This platform offers remote control, data for multi-level analysis and an intuitive interface. From centralised cumulative data management to normalised comparisons between properties and detailed access to individual systems, RED optimise simplifies complexity and provides crucial information for making strategic decisions.

CAREL makes it possible to create a complete solution for the management of HVAC, lighting and energy systems in commercial buildings, guaranteeing the highest comfort with minimum energy consumption. Our cutting-edge technology is ready to drive the transition to sustainable and efficient buildings.
