Austria Center Vienna Becomes The Nation’s First Green Conferenc

Focus on sustainable, eco-friendly building management IAKW-AG, which is responsible for operating the Austria Center Vienna and maintaining the Vienna International Centre, has implemented countless far-reaching environmental measures over visit site recent years, particularly with regard to energy savings. We are responsible for around 325,000m2 of space, all of which has to be heated, cooled and supplied with electricity. Our job is to provide a pleasant environment for more than 4,000 people working in both complexes as well as the 200,000 visitors to the Austria Center Vienna each year, explained CEO Susanne Baumann-Sollner. Using district heating for the heating and warm water supply cuts CO2 emissions by around 9,000 tonnes a year. Heat recovery systems cut the amount of energy required for ventilation, and cooling energy for the air conditioning systems in both buildings is delivered by state-of-the-art turbo water-cooled chillers. All of the electricity delivered by the ACVs dedicated substation comes from renewable sources. Due to the sheer size of the buildings, lighting and IT are two areas that offer significant potential for saving energy. With this in mind the Austria Center Vienna has already replaced 2,500 tube lights with LED lamps, and the entire twitter signage system has made the changeover to energy-efficient LCD screens. When procuring new electronics and IT equipment, the centre now exclusively chooses Energy Star or TCO certified products. <br>More:
