The smart building combines data from digital and information technologies, infrastructures born of artificial intelligence, environmental issues and human capital. By ensuring compliance with energy consumption regulations, through uses adapted to climate change and demographic changes, all actors in the economic and social sphere are participating in the adoption of sustainable and inclusive solutions to curb the trend. Intelligent buildings are essential elements of tomorrow’s urban landscape and provide a concrete illustration of the opportunities they open up in terms of energy efficiency.
Smart building and sustainable development: what links?
While the ideal concepts of natural resource conservation, resilience and renewable energy are aimed at building a greener future, it will be difficult to achieve without the use of cutting-edge innovation. This is why the intelligent building must become a modern building with networked sensors.
In this way, it is possible to manage multiple real-time data from homes and businesses and enable the smart city to progress, without impacts on the planet, by :
- clean and efficient routing of raw materials, which reduces waste and pollution;
- optimal interoperability between energy-efficient buildings, customized transportation and life organization systems;
- a well thought-out architecture, which provides maximum security and comfort to residents;
- investment decisions that are energy efficient but low in gas emissions.
How does the intelligent building contribute to the preservation of the environment?
Hard buildings have always played a major role in emitting greenhouse gases. Smart building, with its constantly evolving artificial intelligence, intends to rhyme with intelligent building and IoT and technological innovation.
There are a plethora of smart building use cases, as respectful to the occupants of the premises as to the planet as a whole, thanks to :
- the direct use of renewable energies, but also of recycled and recyclable materials;
- infrastructures based on the data of the inhabitants, in terms of habits and schedules;
- an insulation against any test, and a regular maintenance of all the equipment, in order to minimize the thermal waste and to limit the breakdowns;
- parking lots equipped with charging stations, for recharging cars with electricity;
- rainwater harvesting devices, intended to supply toilets and sanitary facilities.
