Just saving energy is no longer good enough: why buildings must manage energy

KNX has been contributing to energy management in room automation since its conception, by consuming what was needed locally and avoiding energy waste.

By utilising smart metering, KNX managed to consume the minimum amount of energy, knowing that the energy was being consumed at the level of the circuit.

A lot has happened in the past few years, especially since buildings aren’t just energy consumers any longer, but also energy producers: with this new role in mind, buildings must manage the energy surplus and decide whether to put the energy in storage or charge the electric vehicles faster, to name a couple of examples.
