Modern buildings need to be energy-efficient. They also need to satisfy a demand for greater comfort, convenience, safety, security and sustainability. However, making a building more comfortable and convenient can also increase its energy consumption, so it is important to decide what features are really necessary and what are superfluous luxuries. Windows, facades, glass and solar shading systems have a substantial influence on living comfort and energy efficiency, and therefore play a key role in sustainable, energy-efficient buildings. Automated control systems can optimise energy consumption, safety, security, comfort and convenience yet further – provided, however, that these systems are planned and designed carefully with the active involvement of building users, and that professional support is offered in both the design and use stages of the building.
