Facilio CEO: Digitalization brings multiple opportunities for Romanian buildings
Energy efficiency of buildings is a priority of EU policies on energy and climate goals. The review of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive has brought new requirements for the introduction of smart building technologies to boost sustainability, improve building performance, and enhance the overall quality of comfort and experience of occupants, through digital retrofitting and renovation approaches.
“The digital transformation in buildings and energy performance poses multiple new opportunities for Romanian buildings to harness existing system data and innovate in portfolio operations, meet climate goals and deliver a seamless occupant experience with an IoT-led solution like Facilio”, explains the CEO & Founder of Facilio.
