Industry 4.0 saves energy.

In recent months and years, there have been so many things that most of us would never have thought possible: the never-ending COVID-19 pandemic, faltering supply chains, high inflation, and the war in Ukraine. Many previous political beliefs and economic concepts are being reconsidered in light of these events and are currently under scrutiny. More […]

building 4.0 for energy-efficiency

If the world has always been faced with multiple challenges, it seems that in recent years everything is accelerating, and we are more than ever facing major problems. Without going into detail, I believe that changes in demography, climate change or health crisis do already result in economic and social shifts. In my opinion, digitization […]

Smart Spaces for SMEs

Wired or wireless technology: Which is better for connected buildings? Intelligent work environments with demand-driven regulation of temperature, air quality, and lighting can have a positive effect on the comfort and well-being of employees, thus increasing their motivation and productivity. The things that large companies do in their smart spaces are becoming increasingly easier to […]

Global supply chain during COVID-19

It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has not only had a major impact on our personal lives but also brings huge challenges to many businesses around the globe. “There’s no doubt that the pandemic has tested the ingenuity, resilience and flexibility of supply chain leaders globally, as they have sought to maintain essential operations.”1 […]

Determining factors are, for example, digitization, global warming or the changing demography including the aging population in many countries or migration effects. The current pandemic has just accelerated these transitions with a domino effect that forces us to analyze and act quickly. […]

Energiesparen in Wohngebäuden

Energieeinsparungen in Wohngebäuden sind einer der wichtigsten Bausteine auf dem Weg zur Klimaneutralität. Um den Energieverbrauch von Gebäuden zu reduzieren, sind Sensoren ein wichtiges Mittel zum Zweck. Sie erfassen, analysieren und steuern anhand einer Vielzahl von Messdaten wie zum Bespiel Temperatur, Luftfeuchtigkeit und Helligkeit verschiedenste Prozesse in Gebäuden. Für die kontrollierte Belüftung von luftdichten Niedrigenergiehäusern […]

Sustainability triangle energy harvesting

If there’s one topic that has been present over the last couple of decades, it’s sustainability. People are trying to act sustainably in the way they live, paying attention to recycling, consuming less plastic, using bikes and public transport instead of cars, and buying local goods. Companies have also acknowledged that this is something they […]

Also, there continues to be a growing awareness for the need to act more sustainably not only on […]

new work - risk or opportunity

A few weeks ago, I moderated our IoT workshop at the T-Systems Innovation Centre. As a keynote, the consulting company Eurocres gave us insights into the topic of “New Work” and showed analyses stating that we will need 30 to 50 % less office buildings in the future. There are several reasons for this: One major driver certainly is the current […]

EnOcean CO2 Monitoring

There is increasing evidence that carbon dioxide levels in buildings correlate strongly with the airborne spread of infection. Consequently, CO2 monitors could act as the “canary in the coalmine” to mitigate the coronavirus threat. Carbon dioxide is generated by the exhaled air of people who stay indoors. Alongside CO2 at a concentration around 40,000 parts […]
