Smart buildings save energy
Posted on 3rd May 2022
Technology is developing quickly to save and manage energy and smart Internet of Things (IoT) connections for both residential and commercial buildings.
Buildings generate almost 40% of annual global CO² emissions so innovations in the use of smart technology, smart controls, and smart devices are becoming priorities. Rapidly increasing energy costs are adding to the urgency.
Automation technologies and better device management processes will help to reduce energy use by supporting electricity load shifting. Smart buildings using connected devices and integrated equipment and appliances through a centralised system will save money, time, and energy.
Facilities managers and home owners can use their digital devices to monitor and manage all sorts of installations including gas and smoke sensors, energy meters, security, and environmental systems from a single application. At home you can actively manage dishwashers and washing machines to run outside peak hours to reduce the load on the grid and cut energy costs.
An energy saving future
In the future you could benefit from significant carbon and energy savings through standardised smart building technology connecting all the activities in a building regardless of equipment manufacture.
Integration and automation will also provide better information about total energy consumption, including newer requirements such as electric vehicle (EV) charging. This not only minimises the carbon footprint from our buildings but also makes day to day tasks much easier.
The next step will be to engage the construction sector and property developers in smart building projects. There’s also plenty of scope to retrofit existing buildings with integrated smart solutions.
