Building Energy Efficiency

Buildings represent 35% of global energy demand with continuous gains. An increase in energy efficiency and savings in buildings is thus important both from an economic and environmental point of view. Building energy modeling can be a significant tool towards this end, determining the parameters that can influence most energy consumption as well as the impact of specific energy upgrade investments. Technological advances of the Internet of Things can be utilized increasing building efficiency through appropriate sensors and actuators as well as smart devices, such as energy metering devices.
