The EnOcean Alliance is a non-profit technology alliance with over 350 member companies working to improve flexibility, comfort, security and energy usage in buildings utilizing energy harvesting based self-powered sensors and switches.

The Technology, originally developed by Siemens in the 1990s, has been installed in over 500.000 buildings, helping to save on planning, installation, maintenance and energy.  The unique feature of the technology is that the sensors and switches power themselves using room light (solar), temperature differences (thermal), mechanical (e.g. pressing a switch or turning a handle) or magnetic field, therefore eliminating the requirement of planning and pulling cables or having to change batteries.  The building can be commissioned flexibly once the occupant moves into the area.  The data from the sensors and switches are commonly fed into a larger building automation control system connected to the Internet, BACnet, KNX, LON, DALI or other.    
       
Speakers: Graham Martin, Chairman & CEO EnOcean Alliance Inc and John Corbett, UK Business Development EnOcean Alliance

‘Emergency Lighting; Five Ways to Avoid Breaking the Law’

11.15-12.00: Day 2 - Wednesday 4 November 2015

Emergency lighting has become a growing and increasingly important consideration for fire officers and anyone else involved in fire safety and risk assessment, an understanding of current regulations and standards is therefore essential. The pivotal reference code of practice in the UK, BS5266 Part 1 was updated at the end of 2011. Details of the changes

made and their importance is still often not known and understood.

These CPD presentations will address the changes made to this important code of practice in a clear, concise and comprehensive way.
 

Designed for delegates who influence or specify emergency lighting requirements, it explains the changes, outlines the background behind the changes and provides clear guidance on the way in which the latest version of this code of practice should be interpreted and adopted.
 

These are interesting and educational CPD’s for everybody involved with emergency lighting and will provide significant value to attendees for the time afforded to it. CPD Seminars can be provided either at company or public sector premises,

for employees or affinity groups. P4 provide this service throughout the UK with seminars held as daytime or evening meetings.

'Restrain Your Services Design for Seismic Zones'

14.15 - 15.00: Day 2 Wednesday 4 November 2015

Modern buildings are constructed to meet various performance criteria including their survivability against natural disasters. Earthquakes have always been considered to be one of the most important natural phenomenon, based on their capability of causing catastrophic damage in very short space of time. To minimise damage to buildings and to save human life, seismic performance levels are generally specified. Typically, these vary from operational, immediate occupancy, life safety and collapse prevention depending on the protection required. To achieve these seismic performance levels, an integrated approach is necessary, where both structural and non-structural parts of the building are designed and constructed to meet the same criteria. International and national building codes/standards cover extensively the structural requirements but in majority of cases non-structural components are neglected. When it comes to best practice, the International Building Code (IBC), developed in USA, is one of the leading standards, providing design guidelines for non-structural components.
