Buildings Management | April 16 | Essen
Did you know that 42% of the world’s energy is used in buildings? And that 50% of energy used in buildings is wasted because of inefficient building management systems?
With the rise of Internet of Things and other technology, building automation and control are two very popular trends in the facilities management industry. Digitalization means buildings are becoming more and more connected and the importance of having all building data in sight is constantly increasing. However, only 20% of facility managers use most of the available capabilities in their building management systems.
At the next entech MEETUP we will discuss the changing landscape of buidings management, technological development in the industry and the ways to improve buidings in order to improve peoples lives.
