Connecting the Dots: Integrating Building Components through Technology and Innovation
Buildings account for 40% of the world's energy consumption and are responsible for one-third of energy related global GHG emissions. As a result, Johnson Controls is very focused on building efficiency. The company launched the Institute for Building Efficiency and conducts an annual survey of building owners and operators to identify technologies that are expected to have the greatest performance-price ratios in the coming years. Significant opportunities lie in making buildings operate more efficiently from the inside as well as connecting them to the outside by way of IT and advanced automated controls.
