Deutschland hat sich auf den Weg gemacht, sein Energiesystem auf erneuerbare Energien umzustellen. Damit die Energiewende gelingt, muss die Energienachfrage flexibler und der Energieverbrauch gesenkt werden. Hierbei können smarte Gebäude einen wesentlichen Beitrag leisten: Sie ermöglichen nicht nur die gebäudenahe und damit dezentrale Produktion von erneuerbarer Energie, sondern erlauben es auch, Energie zu speichern, Energienachfrage zu verschieben oder – dank effizienter Heizsysteme und gut gedämmter Gebäudehüllen – Energie einzusparen.
