Re: SmartBuildings - What should the priority be between upgrading existing buildings and smartly building the new built environment?
A fully smart building is the combination of smart devices and software , but also an efficient construction and efficient architecture for energy / heating cooling production and a smart connection to the Grid.
Upgrading an existing building will only provide a partial solution, but sometimes it can be enough. This needs to be assessed case by case.
