Building a scalable foundation for smart cities

Smart buildings are taking a major step forward in popularity and demand. By collecting data and making continuous adjustments, smart buildings are addressing a greater need by tenants for efficiency.

The ability for smart buildings to be able to communicate with one another is making the concept of “microgrids” much more viable, something that will not only cause smart buildings to save money but also stabilize the primary grid when it nears capacity.

“Simply put, smart buildings will create a scalable foundation for creating the elusive smart city, building by building, from the ground up,” Harry G. Smeenk, Vice President of Program Development at the Telecommunications Industry Association said.

Connectivity will soon be a feature of several aspects of city life. Smart buildings may serve as a blueprint to how this may be accomplished on a larger scale.
