San Ramon (USA)/Frankfurt/M. (D). February 5th, 2024. the international meeting place will focus on lighting trends in all their facets, the electrification and digitalisation of home and building service technology and connected security technology. The EnOcean Alliance and selected members will also be there, of course, presenting wireless sensor solutions for Smart Homes and sustainable building digitalization based on the international EnOcean Standard.
The energy transition in the building sector makes a decisive contribution to achieving climate protection goals. Whether energy supply or energy management – the basis for the energy use of the future is the electrification of houses, buildings and urban infrastructure. Light + Building underlines the central importance of electrification with the claim « Be electrified ».
Based on the motto of the world’s leading trade fair the three top themes Sustainability, Connectivity and Work + Living specify the factors set to be essential for living, working and mobility in tomorrow’s world.
At the joint booth (9.0 D10), specialists from the EnOcean Alliance and its member companies Elero, Eltako, EnOcean GmbH, GRE Alpha, Integacon, PEHA/Honeywell, Pressac Schulte Schlagbaum und WinShine will share their insights on ongoing projects for the smartification of homes and buildings and explain the benefits for building professionals and owners. Altogether more than 40 companies are presenting EnOcean-based solutions at Light + Building 2024.
This year’s focus will be on the following topics:
- Sustainability – wireless technology for energy-efficient and healthy buildings: Overall, buildings account for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions in the EU. To achieve the climate targets set, energy-efficient buildings are absolutely vital. This also includes retrofitting existing buildings. Consistent use of building automation alone could save around 12% of total global energy consumption and 10% of all CO2 The experts from the EnOcean Alliance will provide an overview of current developments at EU (i.e. Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, EPBD) and German federal level (i.e. Gebäudeenergiegesetz, GEG 2024) and explain which market opportunities these requirements bring in terms of building automation and integrated energy-efficient operation.
- Connectivity is essential to enable intelligent, healthy and energy efficient buildings. Sensor data provides the key data such as temperature, air quality, occupancy, window & door status and energy use to enable this and compliancy with regulations such as the GEG. The EnOcean Wireless Standard, developed specifically for home & building automation and control is unique as many sensors and switches power themselves, requiring no power cables and no expensive batteries to maintain.
- Wireless standards for Smart Homes and Smart Buildings, a technology comparison: EnOcean Alliance experts provide an overview of established wireless technologies, discussing their most important parameters and preferred areas of application. They also explain how the EnOcean Alliance is collaborating with other organizations/ technologies such as BACnet, LONMark and Matter to develop and implement open protocols for wide-ranging interoperability.
16 years of wireless Buildings Smartness
The EnOcean Alliance was launched as open non-profit organization at the Light & Building Show in 2008 with the aim of promoting the development and marketing of interoperable, maintenance-free and sustainable system solutions based on the international EnOcean Standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3-10/11).
Graham Martin, founding CEO & Chairman EnOcean Alliance, states: “Originally launched with 7 companies, the EnOcean Alliance now unites over 400 members worldwide and is one of the most successful alliances in the area of smart building monitoring and control. We are proud of our success story with millions of buildings now using our Standard, helping to save energy, reduce CO2 output and creating smarter and healthier buildings.”
The EnOcean ecosystem of battery-less sensor solutions comprises currently 5,000 product variants that build on 1,500 basic products, with new ones being added all the time. The millions of buildings all over the world with wireless networks of this type, help make EnOcean the international reference technology in wireless standards for building automation.
