About This Topic
The construction sector is crucial for climate action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in cities around the world. Energy in buildings, communities and districts is one of the key areas for reducing emissions and ensuring a sustainable, self-sufficient and secure future. This can be achieved by improving energy efficiency and using advanced energy system components with on-site renewable energy generation, conversion and storage technologies in buildings, communities and districts, which can offset energy inputs from the grid. Various Net Zero/Positive Energy Buildings and Districts (NZPEBD) concepts have emerged in recent years with the aim of shaping cities into carbon-neutral communities in the near future. These buildings and districts can also support the realization of self-sufficiency, attract users and provide energy resilience during power outages.
In addition, the emergence of digital solutions and tools has helped upscaling and accelerating energy and environmental interventions in buildings, both for designing new buildings and retrofitting existing buildings. This serves as a driver to attain more efficient, smarter, and proactive buildings and communities. Buildings in upcoming smart communities are required to incorporate energy-efficient systems, deliver optimal comfort, offer occupants valuable information, adapt to evolving energy grid conditions, and simplify strategic maintenance. With the latest innovations and advancements in the construction and building sector, it is anticipated that digital technology will significantly contribute to enhancing buildings' intelligence, sustainability, efficiency, dependability, and global connectivity. The availability of data, analytics, and connectivity has enabled the creation of various innovative digital smart applications and devices. The primary catalysts behind this transformation are the processes of digitalization and the widespread adoption of digital information, which are rapidly permeating every facet of the building industry and the construction business.
