Indonesia moves towards Smarter Buildings
The market for building energy management systems (BEMS) in Southeast Asia is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 12.2% to 2020, new research finds. According to Frost & Sullivan’s BEMS Market in Southeast Asia, Forecast to 2020, next-generation IT solutions such as cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) are enabling the development of a new class of BEMS that offer both comfort and optimised energy performance. These systems hold great promise for commercial and industrial buildings in particular, as they can facilitate remote monitoring, energy efficiency, and systems optimization. Most market players, even from those outside the traditional building automation market, have already begun to introduce cloud-based BEMS platforms and services.
Addressing this growing need in smart industrial, commercial and residential building, the inaugural edition of Building System & Automation covers everything needed in this fast evolving space, from intelligent ways of using electricity, to smart grids and metering, energy efficiency solutions, innovative lighting, building systems and automation, smart sensors and security, and the latest in the most efficient HVAC and lifts offerings.
By combining in these two events energy management and building automation systems, the industry can offer a full range of services and products which will accelerate the adoption and the implementation of comprehensive energy saving measures and automations in buildings. There is particular focus on energy efficiency in buildings as they are responsible for more than 40% of the primary energy consumption in a country. This energy usage is set to rise further due to new construction spurred by high economic growth and the soaring demand for cooling due to Indonesia’s hot and humid climate.
