Smart building and technologies

Smart buildings include key features such as smart HVAC systems that can optimize air conditioning usage or smart lighting that can detect occupancy and shut off lighting when specific rooms or hallways are not in use to reduce energy costs. The Smart readiness indicator (SRI) is a common EU scheme for rating the smart readiness of buildings (or building units) to adapt their operation to the needs of the occupant, optimizing energy efficiency and their overall performance, as well as to adapt their operation in reaction to signals from the grid (energy flexibility).
