Budapest, 26 March 2022 Earth Hour, initiated by WWF, was joined by significant Budapest real estate portfolio owner CPI Hungary, known for its innovative solutions, and new user-focused energy market provider energo hungary.
The international initiative was set up 16 years ago to bring people together and take steps together toward a sustainable lifestyle. This year, Earth Hour is held today, March 26th. The symbolic action aims to achieve positive environmental changes through the power of cooperation. Thus, participating residents and businesses will switch off all non-essential equipment for an hour, raising awareness to the necessity of action against climate change.
Today, the Balance Hall of CPI will also be set to energy-efficient mode for one hour between 11:00 and 12:00. During this period, internal temperature will drop by less than 1 degree Celsius. With this action, CPI Hungary and energo would like to draw attention to companies’ responsibility in sustainability.
Balance Hall is part of a smart grid system, within which energy requirements can be temporarily reduced in case of critical system loads, supporting a sustainable green transition with this dynamic capability.
Energy demand of the participating office building corresponds to the energy demand of over 100 households. The collaborators point out that sustainability is important not only in our homes but also in our workplaces. The significance of sustainable, green buildings is therefore growing day by day.
