Smart Building Energy Management
Smart Building Energy Management refers to products and systems that can save energy, increase comfort, enhance security and support other new technologies, such as electric vehicles. Whilst individual products are in themselves smart by nature, their true potential can be realised through the use of local communications technologies to combine functionality within an end to end system, in some cases integrating with upstream grid infrastructure; the Smart Grid. The system approach has bred a growing interest in interoperability, allowing the sharing of communications routes or sensors by different applications.
Through BEAMA's Connected Homes activity, manufacturers are engaging with political, regulatory and commercial supply chain stakeholders to establish a growing market in the UK and internationally. Live demonstrations, knowledge transfer and practical market based advice form a key feature of our work as we seek to deliver mass market deployment of Connected Homes product categories.
