There are large gains to be made by digitizing building infrastructure. Digital technologies enable buildings to understand where people are, what they need, and what they don’t need. An end-to-end digital architecture will give us the potential to reduce our buildings’ impact on the environment by an average of 30% by reducing carbon emissions and lowering energy usage. The best way to achieve this is by integrating onsite renewable energy with active energy management throughout building systems.
