Building automation systems have replaced the manual operation of most large commercial buildings and energy models using data from existing buildings have been instrumental in informing energy codes and retrofit practices. Nevertheless, there’s still a lot to learn. Declining costs for metering systems, new automation capabilities and the advent of cloud computing are creating enormous opportunities that we haven’t fully captured.

Industry 4.0 Is Coming...

The fourth industrial revolution is almost here, but is a world still largely shaped by the Victorian era ready for it?

In the last 150 years the UK has lived through three industrial revolutions. The first, and by far the most famous, between 1760 and 1840, was unprecedented in the way it influenced a way of life that remained largely unchanged since medieval times. The second industrial revolution involved the widespread introduction of steel to the UK, early electrification of factories and the introduction of mass production and the production line. The third (or digital) revolution took place towards the latter half of the twentieth century, and saw industry make the switch from mechanical and analogue electronic technology, to digital electronics.

Innovation remains a key focus and stated priority for many organizations, and for good reason. The world is enamored with Uber, Airbnb, and other disruptive company success stories.
