Did you know that smart buildings include efficient technologies with automated controls, networked sensors and meters, advanced building automation, data analytics software, energy management and information systems, and monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx)? Smart buildings represent a new and potentially enormous opportunity to save energy. The global market for connected devices in commercial buildings has grown steadily.

Several smart technologies can improve building operations:

  1. HVAC
  2. Lighting
  3. Plug loads
  4. Window shading
  5. Automated system optimization
  6. Human operation
  7. Distributed energy resources

The above elements interlinked form a complex solution that collects and analyzes building operation data in real-time and improves building upkeep and maintenance as well as the experience of its occupants.

The edge in Amsterdam uses smart building technology to adjust building operations to workers’ needs and enhance employee satisfaction and productivity. More example of smart building technologies includes: smart hospitals, smart data centers, smart life science facilities.
