Sustainable energy is the key asset of world policies aiming to reduce emissions. In Europe the objective is to become the first continent with zero climate impact by 2050, through the European Green Deal (COM(2019) 640 final), a package of measures which should allow European citizens and businesses to benefit from a sustainable green transition, operating in all business sectors, including:
The point is that energy is a good which should be looked after, limiting waste, promoting the “dialogue” between IoT (Internet of Things) systems and increasing user awareness of their power consumption, above all in the home, at work, in places of production and in the transport sector.
Concentrating on connected systems, at the global level the IoT market foresees considerable growth rates, with Statista which estimate that by 2025 there will be 75 billion connected objects in the world, an increase of 170 percent with respect to about 27 billion at present.
Research on the Smart Home carried out at the European level by the Internet of Things Observatory at Milan Polytechnic School of Management shows for example that in Italy the market in smart objects for the home continues to grow, with an increase of 40% in 2019 with respect to 2018, reaching 530 million euros, corresponding to € 8.8/inhabitant.
In Germany, instead, one finds 2.5 billion euros, or +38% with respect to 2018 (€ 30.2/inhabitant). There is strong growth in the United Kingdom of 2.5 billion euros, +47% (€ 37.6/inhabitant), followed by France (1.1 billion euros, +37%, € 16.4/inhabitant), where, we should remember, many apartment blocks have electronic access control, while Italy is found to be essentially aligned with Spain (420 million euros, +40%, € 9/inhabitant).
Similarly, connected systems are common in service applications because they allow effective and continuous monitoring of results. This analysis is essential for correct and efficient systems optimisation, allowing users to become aware of and be able to manage their power consumption.
With this in mind, calling upon a partner like Legrand, world specialist in electrical and digital infrastructures, to set up a complete Energy Efficiency programme, means choosing products with reduced environmental impact, which guarantee excellent performance and advantages over the long term and optimised monitoring systems to improve processes and services.
