A Digital Approach to Energy Efficient Labs [EELabs-201808]


Event sponsored by:




Laboratories are unique in terms of their usage and high energy consumption. Optimising energy efficiency in laboratories requires a much greater effort that has to be balanced with safety considerations. Laboratory controls are key to ensure safety and sustainable operations.

This seminar will cover lab design for energy efficiency along with best practices in operation and control. Using case studies of existing lab facilities, this seminar will uncover methodical approaches to ensure safe, smart and sustainable laboratories.

With a focus to digitalization and IOT (Internet of Things), sustainable laboratories are more manageable than ever.


Seminar Outcome

• Integrating demand approaches into lab design
• Strategic planning to reduce energy through control algorithms
• How to enhance the lab performance during operation
• Cultivate “Good practices” in HVAC and lab design
• Understanding the guidelines to Greenmark for Labs
• Successful Singapore Labs case studies sharing
