IoT advances energy efficiency for buildings

By Niall Hunt

Connected solutions deployed in buildings represent one of the most meaningful opportunities in the IoT realm. In fact, according to Machina Research, use cases revolving around building automation, security and smart metering will account for nearly 6.8 billion connected devices by 2020 – or more than a third of total all machine-based connections. A group of top industry experts, including Matt Oberdorfer, CTO at Frost Data Capital, converged for a panel discussion at Internet of Things World in Santa Clara in May to discuss how the Internet of Things (IoT) will help us move towards improved energy efficiency in buildings.

Here's a great summary of their conversation, as published by the Internet of Things World News.
