Smarter building infrastructure is expected to play a very important role in reducing the amount of energy required by the building stock globally, according to the "Disruptive Innovations Powering Smart Buildings" report in ResearchAndMarkets.com. European Commission estimates that the energy needs of buildings in Europe corresponds to approximately 40% of the total energy generated in Europe and EIA estimates the energy consumed by the commercial and residential building sectors in the US to be approximately 39% of the total energy generated.
This energy intensive nature of the building stock is a key motive behind the development of a smarter and more efficient building infrastructure. The main aim would be to make buildings more interactive and energy efficient. Other than energy efficiency occupancy comfort is the next main focus of building automation and energy management.
The study focuses on a segment that is a key solution in the building sector, radiant heating and cooling technology.
