As more and more countries strive for net-zero emissions by 2050, there has been an increased focus on sustainability and resiliency objectives. The residential segment, which represents 29% of the world’s electricity consumption, plays a big part in achieving this. Schneider Electric, a pioneer in building a sustainable and resilient future, investigates the steps we can all take to make homes more sustainable and proposes a comprehensive solution to improve sustainability and resiliency in the white paper How A Home Energy Management System Improves Sustainability And Resiliency. This paper brings awareness to the common trends in home energy supply and demand and discusses the complexity of managing them. Finally, a home energy management system is described that can help homebuilders and homeowners make a home more sustainable and resilient.
