James McPhail, CEO of Zen Ecosystems and Contributor at Forbes Technology Council, speaks on the importance of energy management.
Smart home automation is streamlining residential energy management. As a result, implementing similar automation systems in commercial buildings can be beneficial in multiple ways.
“The 5.6 million commercial buildings in the U.S. would greatly benefit from even small investments in energy efficiency. A study by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy found commercial buildings could collectively save up to $60 billion by increasing energy efficiency investments by just 1-4%. Smart energy management systems offer a comprehensive approach to enhancing building efficiency.”
