How to foster smart resource usage and improve energy efficiency of buildings? 

Information and networking event for the building and construction industry


Buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 Emission in the EU. Energy efficiency and smart building constructions therefore become a key topic in Europe driven by ambitions CO2 emissions reductions targets and energy performance of buildings. Green Technology is an important factor in this matter. New trends consider buildings as energy assets; new disruptive innovations come together with new business models, which leads to new partnerships between technology companies, connected home device suppliers, as well as building automation systems providers and lighting control specialists. Companies and research institutions have to react to these challenges and succeed in strong competition.
