Prague Congress Centre Makes Big Sustainability Changes

The Prague Congress Centre has wrapped work on a number of sustainability initiatives. 

A major reconstruction that began last year and concluded this spring has resulted in a savings exceeding CZK 21.9 million, which is about 30 percent of the venue’s total energy costs in 2013, said Luděk Bednář, technical department director, in a written release. ENESA from CEZ ESCO carried out the reconstruction, which modernized the building’s heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting using the EPC method. 

New energy-saving measures include a technical center that monitors all building processes to ensure that everything is functioning smoothly, as well as an intelligent control system that regulates the performance of engines, cooling machines and heat sources according to the weather, the geographical orientation of individual spaces, the occupancy of rooms and halls and the concentration of CO2 in the air. The individual rooms are heated or cooled according to the current situation, and from recorded online measurement it is possible to find out when a congress or performance starts in the hall because the temperature of the air increases due to incoming visitors. The system measures and evaluates everything and, depending on the number of people in the room, exchanges more or less air. Depending on the outside temperature it switches on or of the heating or cooling, and it can also prepare the space according to the event schedule. The system also uses waste heat and cold for preheating and precooling. 

The building also reduced energy use for lighting by replacing all existing lights in the basement with LEDs with controlled dimming that respond to the movement of staff.
