Making Sense of 12 Smart Building Technologies
It is estimated that as many as 2.5 billion people could move to cities by 2050. This spike in population, along with the growing popularity of sustainability initiatives, will force buildings to become more energy efficient, and — in a word — smarter.
The integration of emerging smart building technologies is a central hurdle to making buildings intelligent. In this report, we analyze the potential hurdles and the need to select scalable projects with a clear ROI when deploying smart building technology, whether from the ground up in new construction, or retrofitting an existing structure.
