Many of the buildings that serve as homes and workplaces are old. Most of them are also difficult to maintain, uncomfortable for occupants, and energy-inefficient. The energy needed to power our building infrastructure accounts for 40% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Given the fact that the facilities management history in the US is worth over $1 trillion, there have been few innovative approaches to a more sustainable method of operations.
Enter construction automation servers. EcoStruxure Building is an important part of the EcoStruxure Architecture created by Schneider Electric. From design to integration to commissioning, this new approach brings state-of-the-art engineering efficiency to buildings. When combined with the company’s energy and asset performance services, it becomes possible to offer lifetime building efficiency, ensuring comfort and productivity for occupants.
EcoStruxure Building has been greeted as an advanced Internet of Things (IoT) solution that is secure and scalable enough to create smart buildings of all types and sizes, from smaller homes to complex and large multi-site operations. Its IP-enabled hardware and software systems cover a building’s entire system, supporting easy integration of cloud services, smart devices, and even other building systems.
