SPIE joins the Smart Buildings Alliance for Smart Cities - The future of smart buildings in comprehensive solutions

Paris, 12 June - SPIE announces that it has joined SBA, the Smart Buildings Alliance for Smart Cities.

This recently created professional association includes industrial firms, integrators, operators and turnkey suppliers in the building trade, IT and communication technologies, and energy and services who propose solutions and offerings for project owners, local authorities and companies. SBA's goal is to develop and structure smart building technology, to prepare for its future and to promote it among users and clients.

Smart buildings reflect SPIE's aim to merge its traditional trades (electrical, climate and energy engineering) with the VoIP communication and information system technologies in order to meet the challenges of energy efficiency and, especially, regarding the use of buildings by their occupants.

As buildings are fitted with more and more sophisticated systems to improve their energy efficiency, safety and connection facilities for their occupants, it is essential to ensure they are connected and open to the outside environment. The goal is to make those systems easier to use (interoperability), to adapt them to individual user needs (integration with information systems) and to be able to control them efficiently (supervision and hypervision). "On the basis of its experience and expertise in energy infrastructures, building instrumentation and control and IT services, SPIE is moving into this market as a smart building services operator. The objective is to make these systems more efficient, to expand their range of uses and to make them smarter and more reliable by integrating them into information systems," says Sébastien Meunier, head of the Régions Centre - Haute et Basse Normandie office of SPIE Communications and treasurer of SBA.

About SBA: Smart Buildings Alliance
Founded in 2012, SBA provides a single centre offering smart building and eco-district solutions. It aims to organise the convergence of three fields: building automation, energy / infrastructure and IT). Focusing on solutions, it creates partnerships and promotes this business among private and public partners. Although we must move on from BMS, it remains the starting point and the key to a forward-looking approach and vision which will lead to Smart Buildings and then expand into Smart Cities and Smart Grids. With the assistance of technical groups of industrial trade bodies and technological associations, SBA will create stamps of approval for installations upstream and downstream of meters.
