Adding a huge value for universities
The attractive university campus of tomorrow is digital, agile, and flexible. With Its smart infrastructure, it supports innovative ways of teaching, studying, and research, while, at the same time, managing costs and supporting the efficient use of resources. We are offering a fully integrated, bespoke end-to-end solution, in this way combining renewable and intelligent energy supply and energy efficiency, smart buildings, and e-mobility charging solutions across the entire university campus to create more caring environments that understand and manage changing conditions and requirements, support the people who use them, and make lives better.
Creating additional value for universities
A smart campus is attractive to students and staff and helps position an educational institution as innovative and responsible: It sets new standards in terms of comfort, sustainability, safety and security, and adaptability.
