Das smarte Gebäude in der Energiewende – Diskussionpapier
BPIE finds evidence that with smart buildings, the building sector in Germany can contribute to the transformation of the country's energy system towards one that is based on renewable energy.
Germany is in the middle of transforming its energy system towards one that is based on renewable energy. In order to help achieve the renewable energy targets, flexibility will have to be enhanced and energy savings will have to be increased. BPIE finds evidence that with smart buildings, the building sector can contribute to these systemic functions to the energy system.
Based on the report Is Europe ready for the smart buildings revolution? and available only in German, this report analyses the role of smart buildings in Germany and the smart readiness of the country, to check if Germany is actually ready for the smart buildings revolution.
An article on the topic was published on the yearbook “Energieeffizienz in Gebäuden 2017”. BPIE’s contribution can be found below, while the complete yearbook is available online.
An infographic on the topic in Germanis also available.
