From Smart Building to Smart City
As building operational efficiencies improve, so will the overall efficiency of a city. It must be remembered that buildings are the main consumer of resources - electricity, water and the like. With more efficient buildings, these resources can then be channelled elsewhere in order to give a boost to other city systems. Technology is already available today for buildings to become smart,. as these solutions can integrate all key domains of a building: power, IT room, process, building and security management systems - making buildings truly smart and allowing them to become the cornerstones on which a smart city is built. With this, the onus is on the authorities as well as developers to collaborate in order to realise Singapore's smart city vision.
