The changes in insulation levels and air tightness in new buildings has dramatically increased the requirement for cooling. With continuing changes to Part L of the Buildings Regulations and the requirements of the energy performance of Building Directive there is a need to utilise renewable energy and reduce the carbon dioxide emissions in modern buildings. velta systems can assist this process in many areas.
