A unit of measurement is the basis of Science.
Many years ago when I first visited Delhi, dad took me to Jantar Mantar. It has a sun dial. I was amazed at the way man had created a structure after studying the movement of the sun and managed to map time for his understanding and functioning of day and night for 24 hours.
Measuring something – anything – brings the item to a ‘finiteness’. Moves it from abstract to real understanding. From magic to method. While spirituality allows you to wonder in joy, Science strips that bare, to steps of reasoning.
One such measurement is energy consumption. Energy is everything.
We at Beacon chose to focus on electricity and water reduction - that which is used by individuals, families, offices, buildings, restaurants, government buildings, Isn’t it time we started to do something about the high bills we are paying to produce electricity and water in the middle east region?.
The MARS process has evolved as a result of constant thinking about a methodology for reduction of consumption to support clean energy production and go towards energy self sufficiency. MARS is a comprehensive and holistic approach to sustainability that is tailor-made for this region. It considers all unique aspects of your building, the people who live in it, and the surrounding environment. MARS stands for Monitoring Audit Retrofit and Solar.
