Smart Buildings, Smarter Future: Building Sustainability Through Data and Flexibility

We are excited to invite you to our upcoming webinar with smartEn, which will take place on Thursday 26 October, from 15.30 to 17.00. System Operators, building experts and market players will exchange on the actual performance of buildings and how a digitally-enabled evolution would further valorise the system-integration of new and renovated buildings.

The 26 October 2023 from 15:30 to 17:00 Brussels time

The landscape of building design and energy consumption is evolving, propelled by advancements in technology and a growing focus on sustainability. In anticipation of these changes, smartEn and EuroACE joined forces to host a webinar on October 26 2023. The event will bring together industry experts, System Operators, and building enthusiasts to discuss the vital topic of actual building performance and its intersection with digital evolution. 

The Power of Data: A Catalyst for Change 

The keynote speakers set the tone for the event, emphasizing the pivotal role of flexible assets in the wake of electrification. By embracing technology, assets like heat pumps, home-batteries, smart dishwashers, bidirectional EV chargers, and rooftop solar panels become more than mere conveniences – they become vital tools for optimizing energy consumption. The key lies in their ability to adapt, automatically altering their consumption and generation patterns in response to varying demands. 

The event showcased an array of real-life projects, highlighting the quantification of the actual performance of buildings. Companies such as Knauf Energy Solutions, Siemens, and Johnson Controls presented their initiatives, demonstrating how data-driven decisions can revolutionize energy efficiency.

Envisioning the Future 

In the wake of this insightful webinar, it is evident that the synergy between technology and sustainability is the cornerstone of future-ready buildings. The knowledge shared and partnerships forged during this event are a testament to the collective commitment towards a greener, more energy-efficient tomorrow.
