According Energy Manager Today (2018), the global smart building market is predicted to reach $61.9 million by 2024. One of the major drivers for growth in this sector is increasing concern around energy waste and carbon emissions. Smart buildings improve operational efficiency through sophisticated controls automation, delivering more comfortable working environments at the lowest cost and with the least environmental impact.
Recent years have seen rapid advances both in terms of the communication between disparate systems and the availability of information for building managers. The evolution of IoT has resulted in an explosion in the sheer volume of data generated, making it possible to proactively respond to building inefficiencies.
Migrating over to smart building technology can seem like a daunting task. In order to gain the real value from these systems, decision makers must filter through the wide variety of technologies available on the market and assess the suitability of each. This webinar provides a brief guide into the smart building market, how to assess suitable technologies, how to upgrade an existing building, and how to maximise the benefits of the chosen solution.
