Intelligent Buildings Europe

On a global scale, buildings (both residential and commercial) account for 37%-45% of total final energy consumption. According to Navigant Research, the European market for building energy efficient products and services will grow from €41.4 billion ($56 billion) in 2014 to €80.8 billion ($109 billion) in 2023. Intelligent Buildings Europe plays a role by bringing together the different stakeholders with the common goal of meeting climate change and policy commitments by improving energy efficiency. A special focus in 2017 was on opportunities and strategies for the ESCO industry in Europe.
