Building technology answers global energy crisis
Efforts to go green often focus on recycling and conserving water, but the biggest impact lies in buildings that consume 40 percent of the world's energy.
"Most people don't consider the energy consumed by the buildings they pass by every day," said David Clark, vice president of Panoptix, Johnson Controls. "Buildings are hidden factories that consume natural resources and produce carbon."
Johnson Controls, the global leader in building efficiency, joined industry experts at the Greenbuild Expo in San Francisco to demonstrate the Panoptix solution, a blend of software and services to help single building owners or managers of global enterprises track and improve the performance of their buildings. Cloud-based apps provide visibility into how every system, subsystem and device is functioning. Building managers then use the information to improve building performance, reduce energy use and increase the comfort of occupants.
