An Ultraviolet Solutions visit to CEREB and the future of energy in the built environment

Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions’ Sales Manager Colin Hardman this week had the pleasure of a guided tour through a leading London resource for renewable and intelligent energy solutions in the built environment.

The Centre for Efficient and Renewable Energy in Buildings is based at London South Bank University and is a teaching and research resource for intelligent energy solutions in the built environment.

Colin was invited to CEREB, along with fellow CIBSE patrons and other interested parties, to see the various renewable building technologies being explored at the centre, including ground-source heat pumps, solar panels and indoor air quality testing equipment.

Ultraviolet-C (UVC) technology has a significant role to play in the future of energy-efficient, sustainable buildings. Not only can UVC help minimise energy consumption and protect the health and wellbeing of building occupants, it contributes to WELL Building certification and other valuable legislation.

UVC light has for many years been used as a disinfectant due to its ability to break down mould, bacteria, viruses and other potentially-harmful contaminants.

Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions apply UVC light to the cooling coil of a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system’s air handling unit (AHU), destroying ‘biofilm’ which is caused by a build-up of contaminants.

If left untreated, biofilm can present a threat to the health and wellbeing of building occupants while reducing the HVAC system’s efficiency.

Our systems are used in commercial buildings around the world, and Colin spent time discussing the multiple benefits of UVC with the CEREB team.
