Buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of energy consumption in the EU and 49% in the U.S. Facility managers are being challenged to reduce energy costs and meet environmental regulations, while maintaining or improving comfort, productivity, and operational efficiency. This challenge is made more difficult for small and medium-sized commercial buildings that may not have the needed in-house resources and expertise. This paper reviews how the Internet of Things and cloud-based applications and services reduce this burden on facilities management teams by enabling affordable, time-saving solutions that can generate an ROI within two years.
