Artificial intelligence can help unlock efficiency and emissions savings

Smart buildings, defined as those employing interconnected digital and automation technologies to optimize performance, are fast being recognized as critical to decarbonizing the built environment and limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C this century. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) 2020 Global status report1, building construction and operations account for 38% of total energy-related

Smart and smarter – the latest in commercial building automation

Driven by several factors, including the need to reduce carbon emissions and even the COVID-19 pandemic, building automation continues to become more and more mainstream. Matthew McDonald identifies the latest in Smart Building Technology. By now, the Smart Building concept is well-established. Organizations of varying sizes now understand the benefits they stand to gain by

5 Benefits Of Modern Smart Buildings

These buildings often translate to significant energy savings and cost optimization for facility managers. In fact, smart buildings, thanks to significant advancements in technology can now go beyond maintenance cost reduction and function optimization. BMS (or building management systems) that are enabled with IoT (or Internet of Things) connectivity can help building managers and owners

ABI Research identifies connected lights as smart building opportunity

As building owners, energy companies, tenants, regulators, and others look to improve building performance and appeal, Network Lighting Control (NLC) will be at the vanguard of many smart building projects. ABI Research says shipments of connected luminaires and related equipment into a new generation of smart buildings will grow to nearly 220 million units by

Applying Artificial Intelligence To Decarbonize Buildings

An international team of researchers is applying artificial intelligence techniques to design energy-efficient district heat pump systems that better serve human needs and behaviors while reducing the carbon footprint of buildings. The $1.5-million project is funded by the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) program and led by Zheng O’Neill
