The advancement in the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G are changing the way organizations tackle some serious issues like climate change. And, smart buildings are one of the major innovations these days.
With rising temperatures and other environmental impacts, signs of climate change are on the rise. It is assumed that the world’s population also soar from 7.6 billion to 9.8 billion by 2050. Currently, construction and buildings account for 36% of global energy use and are responsible for 39 %of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions.
So, for fast-paced urbanization, smart cities are the solution that can lower energy consumption and reduce climate impacts.
How can smart buildings help the environment?
Connected buildings use the latest technology and IoT to control activities on the premises. Also, these buildings will be the bedrock of 5G and next-generation smart cities. They provide both environmental benefits with Net Zero CO₂ emission and help save money on things like heating and power.
Further, the latest building technology can manage lighting, heating, and cooling, reducing unnecessary use of energy. In addition, smart infrastructure technology can schedule preventive maintenance, automatically identify the potential hazard, and continually optimize buildings for energy efficiency.
Buildings such as office complexes, multifamily housing, hospitals, schools, and more area big part of city infrastructure. And, making them smarter can lower the energy consumption and carbon footprint of a city as well.
By connecting various buildings with an IoT network, air pollution can reduce many times and benefits the environment too. In addition to reducing carbon footprints, smart connected buildings also help improve productivity and save you a lot of money on utility bills.
Smart building is the future.
With the use of sensors and latest technology, smart infrastructure is the future and offer many benefits too. Also, connected smart buildings help create a smart city and benefits environment as well as occupants.
