Hello [NAME]

YasminHashmiIt’s good to be back from the summer break with a great selection of new articles. We start with an interview with Julian Barkes of Bemco, who gives us an insight into how to reach out to electrical contractors, his reaction to the Brexit vote, and his outlook for the future.

Back from an adventurous holiday in the West Coast of the USA, our regular columnist, Simon Buddle, explains why KNX professionals should be looking at the retrofit market. He also gives some practical examples of heating and lighting upgrades to help householders reduce their carbon footprint.

Mark Warburton of Ivory Egg expands the theme further, and makes the case for KNX in the average home. He argues that while conventional control may seem to meet his family's needs, the benefits of KNX more than justify the initial cost. He also gives some helpful examples of his KNX upgrade plans for his recently-purchased house.

And finally, Paul Foulkes of EchoHouse Energy still has his sights on local authorities and building planners, with a roundup of why KNX is the ideal choice for holistic planning and environmental mitigation.

Don't forget to check out our resources section which is packed full of useful information, and don't forget to send us a picture of you, wherever you may be, with the KNX logo and a smile for our 'Where is KNX?' gallery. Enjoy!
