INCREASING ENERGY EFFICIENCY CAN HAVE MANY POSITIVE IMPACTS
A STORY THAT NEEDS TO BE TOLD
Energy consumption and CO² emissions play a critical role in climate change. As climate change can lead to severe droughts in some places and heavier rainfall and floods in others, energy reduction is a crucial step that we can take together
How can we increase building intelligence and waste less?
Implementing intelligent solutions in commercial and domestic buildings can significantly reduce energy consumption and unlock huge energy savings – without compromising on comfort. If everyone across the world prioritises intelligent solutions in buildings, we will not only improve energy efficiency, but also contribute towards overcoming the world’s biggest environmental issues and substantially reduce global CO² emissions.
CO² and climate change
Solutions are available to tackle excessive energy usage in small and large buildings alike. With energy consumption currently accounting for 73% of the world’s CO2 emissions*, we can make a difference with intelligent solutions.

Energy consumption in buildings
40% of the EU’s entire energy consumption comes from buildings, making them the largest energy consumer*. With more intelligent and energy efficient solutions in buildings, we can change this.

Unlock huge energy savings – without compromising on comfort
We can significantly reduce energy consumption for cooling with intelligent solutions. Since the turn of the century, energy used for cooling has doubled*. Together, we can increase building intelligence and waste less.

Solutions in action
Cities, businesses and people must come together and change the way they consume energy. To reduce their energy consumption and make a positive, lasting impact on global climate challenges, many buildings and businesses are optimising their energy efficiency with intelligent, sustainable solutions. Learn how they are contributing to climate action and making substantial energy savings in the following case studies.
These are the stories that need to be told.
Simple pump swaps lead to huge savings
With the city of Dubai looking to reduce its energy use by 30% by 2030, it was crucial to optimise a number of buildings that were running inefficiently. Intelligent solutions allowed them to achieve energy savings of up to 80%.
