Buildings in the U.S., either huge or small, commercial or residential, waste energy sources; an issue the country has even faced during the pandemic too. In some buildings, rooms are lit up with preset temperature while all floors are not necessarily occupied.
The need for efficient buildings is significant in the U.S. as the country is trying to see a cleaner future.
In its latest report, Raymond James investment banking company stated energy-efficient things are so critical in a country with sustainability and carbon-free concerns.
Joe Biden, the President-elect, plans to attach special importance into climate change and buildings sustainability for that matter. In addition to constructing new, clean buildings, old buildings have to be addressed as well. Three major companies with a focus on digitizing buildings, Johnson Controls, Honeywell and Schneider Electric, help residents coordinate and monitor their buildings meter measures. Their data will be used to adapt to what residents require in their buildings, from hospitals, firms, offices, to malls and even airports. It will also help to enhance energy-efficiency and lower the buildings costs.
