The Convergence of Technology and Competition Will Drive Next-generation Solutions

Rising energy costs and an increasing focus on environmental performance of buildings will make energy management the most dynamic segment of the building technologies and services industry. Performance contracting will become customers’ preferred business model and suppliers will need to develop service capabilities or partner with facility management companies or energy service providers to participate in the most dynamic part of the market. Smart buildings and homes will become a mainstream reality in 2 to 3 years, driven by the convergence of green and smart technology and new market entrants. Cloud-based services with a strong focus on data interpretation will be key enablers for a new generation of intelligent buildings.
