The GET Nord trade fair begins in Hamburg’s fairgrounds from November 22-24. 2018 with emphasis on smart homes and energy-producing houses. These are just some examples of how innovative technologies influence the design of buildings. Suburbs and entire cities may yet form a networked system in which intelligent buildings are integrated and pose new challenges for the building industry.
“E-house” shows tried and tested solutions
Visitors can discover how a networked building functions and tour the 100 square metre e-house. The highlights include solutions for innovative lighting technology, age-appropriate assistance systems, applications for manufacturer-independent energy management and intelligent linking of house’s energy system with the charging station for an electric vehicle. Security standards for data protection and safety will also be addressed. “The networked house has arrived in reality. In an intelligently networked detached house, visitors can experience what modern energy management, effective energy generation and energy storage looks like now and in the future,” said Ulrich Mietschke, state guild master of electrical engineering and information technology in Schleswig-Holstein.
Networked buildings as part of smart city
GET Nord 2018 dedicated plenty of space to digitalisation and networked building technology in accordance with the senate’s goal of making technological innovations usable for Hamburg as a digital city. Adopted in 2015, the “Digital City” strategy now covers eight subject areas including digital administration, intelligent transport systems to projects such as smart port, smart energy and smart geodata.
