Energy Management

© MEV-Verlag, Germany

Constantly rising requirements with regard to climate protection and energy efficiency in buildings call for innovative and industry-specific building control concepts. The optimal operation and automation of existing installations are of central importance for the efficiency of buildings and can vary based on the type of building. Designing customer-specific regulation strategies therefore requires reliable prediction models that take a holistic perspective on energy consumption while factoring in all predictable variables both inside and outside a structure. State-of-the-art sensor technologies as well as design and control strategies guarantee an optimal balance between minimal energy consumption and high user comfort. We offer a comprehensive portfolio for optimized “energy management of the future.”
