Today over half the world’s population lives in cities. Over the next 20 years, nearly 10% more will move to cities. The demand for new urban buildings has never been higher, and to date most of the attention has been narrowly focused on improving energy efficiency. This approach leaves value on the table, and attention is now turning to leveraging intelligence to improve occupant comfort, productivity, and health – together these account for 90% of doing business.
There are 4 key enablers to truly maximize the value for any corporation looking to profit from the deployment of intelligent equipment and software in commercial and residential buildings, namely:
  • Energy generation, management, and end-use hardware that generate, use, and manage energy within the building, and consider how it interfaces with the Grid
  • Multi-function sensors and control networks that gather data from building systems, spaces, and send commands to equipment, allowing buildings to adapt to the people inside
  • Energy and performance analytics software that aggregates data from different sources in the cloud, and generates insights which give the sensors and control networks intelligence
  • Emerging design tools that can be used to design and deliver high-performance buildings, identify energy conservation opportunities, and consider the life cycle of a building
