Smart buildings are on their way to becoming fully digitised, not only catering for classical automation areas such as HVAC and lighting but also developing into demand-based agile living and working environments. With the aid of sensor data, IoT systems can map detailed usage patterns of the building, staff and inventory. This information can be […]
Am 16. November 2019 startete die Europäische Woche der Abfallvermeidung (European Week for Waste Reduction #EWWR2019). Bereits 2009 ins Leben gerufen, ist die Thematik dieses Projekts heute so brisant wie nie zuvor. Neben dem Klimawandel ist es eine weitere große Herausforderung unserer Zeit. Wie bei der CO2-Reduktion sind die Mechanismen und Zusammenhänge komplex – und […]
Die Digitalisierung macht auch am Büroalltag nicht halt. Flexible Arbeitszeitmodelle, dezentrales Arbeiten, Homeoffice – die weitaus meisten verbinden New Work mit einem neuen Führungsverständnis, radikalem Kulturwandel und innovativen Formen der Arbeitsorganisation, die dem Einzelnen eine größere Freiheit in der Gestaltung seines Arbeitsalltags einräumen. Wie sehr der New Work-Gedanke allerdings auch Aspekte der „klassischen Arbeitswelt“ durchdringt […]
Digitization makes many things possible, but can it also help to meet the huge ecological, economic and social challenges of our time? SB4SC University (Smart Buildings for Smart Cities) addressed this overarching question at the beginning of September 2019. Around 1,000 participants discussed the future of our cities and the role buildings will play at […]
At CES 2019, the EnOcean Alliance and several of its members showed smart applications and interoperable solutions for intelligent buildings and IoT systems – all based on the EnOcean wireless standard. This video gives a snapshot of EnOcean Alliance’s presence at the show.
Our 2nd tutorial video explains the energy harvesting technology from EnOcean which enables wireless switches and sensors to work without batteries. Learn about the technology’s benefits and the wide range of applications for smart buildings using the EnOcean standard.
This tutorial video gives background information at a glance on the specifics of EnOcean-based solutions – for installers, specifiers, facility managers, system integrators and everyone who wants to learn more about the characteristics and benefits of self-powered wireless switches and sensors based on the EnOcean standard for more energy-efficient and intelligent buildings.
In June 2018, the Ready2Services label was officially launched by the Smart Buildings Alliance in Paris. It aims to further advance the realization of intelligent buildings for smart cities, including new innovative service models. Self-powered wireless sensor solutions and the interoperable EnOcean ecosystem play a key role in this process of digitalization. The Ready2Services concept […]
This video gives an overview of the first “European Congress for Energy Efficiency and Digital Transition in Buildings”. The congress took place in the BGL BNP PARIBAS building in Luxembourg, a smart and energy-efficient building which uses over 2,000 self-powered sensors and switches based on the EnOcean wireless standard. The attendees shared multiple programs and […]
On May 17, the 1st European Conference on Energy Efficiency and Building Digital Transition took place in Luxembourg. Here, building industry experts and government representatives discussed with more than 200 attendees the possibilities of digitalization in buildings. It emerged that this is the great opportunity and absolute necessity for energy savings at a large scale. […]
This year, the EnOcean Alliance celebrates its 10th anniversary. We spoke with Graham Martin, Chairman of the EnOcean Alliance, on the organization’s success story that started at Light+Building 2008, initiated by seven visionary companies. Graham, what was the idea to form the EnOcean Alliance? The goal was to establish innovative automation solutions for sustainable buildings. There […]
