Safe and efficient buildings for a cooler planet

Buildings of tomorrow, attainable today

With a growing population and increasing electricity consumption, there’s more demand on buildings than ever. Consider these global trends:

  • By 2050, 66% of the world’s population will live in cities.
  • Buildings already account for 53% of global energy consumption. In the next 30 years, that figure will grow by 80%.

Buildings are also complex and challenging to manage. According to World Energy Outlook, building operations and maintenance represent as much as 75% of lifetime costs. Yet, the buildings of tomorrow need to be:

  • More safe
  • More connected
  • More efficient
  • More confortable
  • More sustainable
  • More data-enabled

How will that happen? Emerging technologies – the Internet of Things, renewable energy and lifecycle management – offer great potential for efficiency gains. Schneider Electric’s innovative IoT-enabled EcoStruxure™ solution can simplify building management, making it possible to improve performance and the bottom line.
