Smart buildings play a unique role. How and why?

Buildings are an important lever in the quest for sustainability. Besides the fact that people spend 90% of their time in them, they are responsible for around 40% of global energy consumption. Harnessing this enormous potential for energy savings is crucial for future smart cities.

Join us at Expo 2020 Dubai as we use smart building technology from Siemens to measure and monitor sustainability metrics! MindSphere® collects, combines, and analyzes data from thousands of data points in buildings - in real-time on site.

The MindSphere Future World Series brings together people who care to help make our world smarter, more livable, and sustainable. To make an impact that counts, we set out challenges to find viable solutions to crucial sustainability issues with IoT.
