Improved Building Energy Consumption with the Help of Modern ICT
MetadataShow full item record
Kyoto process and the global combat against climate change will require more intensive energy saving efforts especially in all developed countries. Key for the success in building sector is the energy efficiency of the existing building stock. Reliable information on realised energy consumption is the basis for all kind of improvements. Monitoring and targeting systems based on modern information and communication technologies can support daily building operations and saving actions. Based on the internet technologies information and benchmarking services can be developed in order to improve the dissemination of best practices and the networking both on national and international level. Some results of the latest developments carried out at VTT in Finland (www.vtt.fi) will be discussed.
