Residential buildings are responsible for more than a third of worldwide carbon dioxide emissions, yet most homeowners are unaware of the impact that their homes are having on our climate.
If we are to achieve net zero emissions globally by 2050, our homes must become more sustainable. And homeowners, along with home builders, property developers, architects, and contractors, are essential players in this effort. Solutions exist today that will allow us to make our homes not only smart, but sustainable, as well.
A recent study commissioned by Schneider Electric examines attitudes toward energy use and smart home technology across 4 countries in the United States and in Europe.
