The 2 D's shaping the Buildings Industry - Digitalization and Decarbonization

Thursday 19th October 15:10 - 15:55

Management Theatre

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need to automate buildings, presenting opportunities to increase digitization and decarbonization efforts in buildings. Digital transformation technology adoption has accelerated during the last few years and is poised to transform the building technology industry, making buildings more connected, sustainable, and cognitive. Intelligent building solutions using digital transformation technologies, including IoT, AI, and machine learning (ML), are advancing building operations and maintenance, moving from reactive to predictive maintenance. These technologies are causing significant disruptions, influencing how buildings are managed and shifting roles away from traditional skills towards technological expertise and collaborative efforts. Industry participants, including leading, emerging, and start-up companies, innovate to achieve building decarbonization and digitalization and improve occupant well-being.

As companies are resuming business operations and building occupancy after the peak of the pandemic, organizations face challenges in ensuring safe workplaces and sustainability practices such as near-zero or net-zero emissions. In addition, governments endeavor to improve their sustainability development goal (SDG) performance in the midst of economic recovery and challenges after the pandemic.

Through this presentation, we aim to demonstrate how decarbonization and digitalization are changing the way buildings are designed, operated, and maintained.
