Buildings account for 40% of the final energy consumption and 36% of the CO2 emissions on EU Level. In order for the building stock to effectively contribute to the global climate target, the built environment must undergo a deep transformation in a smart and energy efficient way leading to a full decarbonisation by mid of this century. Residential, commercial and tertiary buildings therefore will need to evolve towards micro-energy hubs that will consume, produce, store and supply energy more flexibly then before.
Secondly, 90% of our time is spent inside buildings. A smart and energy efficient building needs to adapt its operation to the needs of its occupants, providing a healthy and comfortable indoor climate at the lowest energy cost possible while interacting with the electricity grid to provide additional value to the decentralized energy system.
These challenges impose profound shifts in how we look at and implement future-proof building energy management solutions, that were not possible before.
