How To Maintain Effective Wireless in Energy Efficient Buildings

The advantages of energy efficient buildings are apparent — lower costs and reduced environmental impact are among the main benefits.

Energy use in the buildings sector is an increasingly important consideration. Buildings account for about 75 percent of all electricity use and 40 percent of primary energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. As well, buildings that meet LEED requirements are highly regarded and attractive to owners, operators, and tenants.

The goal for facility managers is to find the most cost- effective and energy efficient building technologies — whether lighting, HVAC, or other — while also maintaining another utility that is, to many, as essential as heat and water: in-building wireless communication.

While seeking LEED certification for new or renovated buildings via new technology and building methods can result in lower energy consumption and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, it can also have an adverse effect on wireless communications.
