Focus on building automation Buildings make up over 40 percent of the total primary energy consumption in Europe. For this reason it makes sense to examine this particular sector in detail for efficiency optimisation and potential for savings. The energy savings potential of building shells and system technology has, however, been nearly exhausted. Achieving further savings is now almost only possible when the energy required in the building can be made available and used efficiently, and this is only possible with suitable building automation.
Resource-efficient solutionsWith this background Gira has developed a concept that makes it possible to offer solutions to customers who want to run their buildings sustainably. The starting point for considerations is the control circuit of a building, as developed by Professor Martin Becker [Biberach University of Applied Sciences]. This approach was picked up by Gira, selectively developed and elaborated to become the basis of our framework to drive forward resource-efficient solutions.
