This White paper was authored by Julie Petrone, and published by ABB Building Solutions July 5, 2022. Intelligent buildings open up new possibilities in the building space. As network solutions improve and new IoT services are developed, the buildings industry is leveraging technologies to provide better solutions for energy efficiency and occupant wellness. Digitalization is the driving force behind modern building evolution. Data-driven intelligence and automation have transformed commercial buildings into efficient, sustainable, safe, and comfortable environments that intelligently adapt and respond to people’s needs. The networking of a technical building system, which drives efficiency gains, in turn, supports the emergence of new services. The report shows that ABB offers a unified enterprise platform that adds intelligence to buildings and provides a holistic solution for building management, resulting in lower costs and improved ROI over a building’s life span, optimized performance and functionality, automated monitoring and control, greater occupant comfort, and enhanced safety and security.
