Wireless Sensor Networks is Making Buildings Green

Wireless Sensor Networks is Making Buildings Green

    SAN DIEGO, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Wireless sensor network (WSN)
        technology's clean and inexpensive system deployments will result in more
        buildings using less energy, needing less maintenance, and producing lower
        carbon emissions, according to ON World. By 2011, global revenues for WSN
        commercial building solutions will be $2.6 billion.
        Rising end user awareness and demand, a strengthening value system, and
        hardening standards is increasing WSN adoption in Green buildings
        worldwide. Twenty-five percent of commercial building energy reduction will
        be attributed to WSN in 2013, worth $7.4 billion in global energy savings.
        "Energy management has always been a major driver for commercial
        buildings to adopt building control technologies, but now achieving Green
        status is becoming the primary driving force," says Mareca Hatler, Director
        of Research for ON World. Driven by social and economic forces, building
        owners worldwide are adopting Green solutions in order to increase
        efficiency, lower costs, reduce operational risks, and satisfy the demands
        of customers, employees, and shareholders.
        Increasing Awareness and Demand
        In a recent survey by ON World with 115 building operations executives,
        nearly two-thirds are familiar with WSN and one out of five are current
        wireless sensor users. Within the next 18 months, 61% plan to adopt an
        energy management solution.
        Strengthening Value System
        Compared to only a handful of WSN developers two years ago, there are
        currently over one hundred WSN developers, integrators, and manufacturers
        targeting building controls solutions. Some of the largest global OEMs such
        as Assay Abloy, Hitachi, Ingersoll-Rand, Johnson Controls, Schneider
        Electric, Siemens, and Trane all have commercial WSN products shipping
        Hardening Standards
        IEEE802.15.4 and ZigBee are the clear winning technologies for WSN
        solutions in commercial buildings. This year, nearly two thirds of all
        deployed WSN nodes in commercial buildings will be based on IEEE802.15.4
        and four out of five of the building control market leaders have ZigBee
        based WSN products shipping today.
        Emerging markets
        While HVAC is the most commonly targeted solution, there are several
        emerging market opportunities for WSN such as lighting control systems,
        metering, and condition monitoring. Markets such as lodging, manufacturing,
        warehousing, and data centers often lack traditional building control
        systems and have the highest demand for WSN today. In 2011, non-traditional
        markets will make up more than a quarter of the WSN commercial building
        ON World's recently published report, "WSN for Smart Buildings" is
        based 190 phone interviews with building executives and technology
        companies. It provides extensive market size forecasts and analysis of 7
        solution areas in eleven target markets; in-depth coverage of the
        competitive landscape; and market analysis of WSN for traditional building
        controls, vertical markets, and emerging markets.
