Buildings are responsible for approximately 40 % of energy consumption and 36 % of CO2 emissions in the EU, according to the European Commission. It’s also widely accepted that to reduce the amount of energy used, consumers have to change their behaviour.
But old habits die hard, especially when it comes to making sacrifices for the environment.

5G networks no doubt have the technological specs necessary to power smart cities, but without careful design and planning the complexity of integrating everything from traffic to health care could prove overwhelming
Long-touted advances of smart cities may finally become reality with the increases to wireless network speeds and bandwidths promised by the switch to 5G. Seamless integration of our homes, cities and utilities can change the way we interact with everything from grocery stores to doctors.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and Internet of Things (IoT) have assumed a key role for energy efficiency in buildings: sensors (temperature sensor in a room, electrical power measuring device), actuators (HVAC room controller, motor), complex devices (PLC providing home, building or industrial automation), monitoring systems are a common standard that involves a wide range of stakeholders – from designers, to integrators, to operators and users.
Ae we ready to manage the risks and benefits of IoT in smart buildings?

In the coming decades one of the key technologies to be implemented in intelligent buildings will be LiFi, the transfer of data through light
Just imagine: you get back home one evening, unlocking your door with the torch light of your mobile. You sit down on your sofa, download a film 100 times faster than currently possible and enjoy the movie on a fully secure wireless connection. This is already possible in some smart buildings, and could be the norm in the future, thanks to LiFi – or Light Fidelity.
