Building technology: trends & technologies

We are currently witnessing the consequences of a failed energy policy. Due to hesitant action in the expansion of renewable energies, valuable years have been wasted here, which are now clearly noticeable to each of us in view of the energy crisis. Together with supply bottlenecks, a shortage of skilled workers and other failures in infrastructure, the entire economy is facing a huge challenge. This makes the trends & technologies of the e-industry all the more important as an important component of the energy transition.


Dortmund – The trade fair elektrotechnik is also dedicated to relevant topics related to the energy transition in its focus area of building technology. These are the focus of the exhibitors as well as in the technical supporting program.

Smart Living in the E-House: Energy Transition – Sustainability – Digitalization (4. B26)

The core topics of the trade fair focal points reflect the socially and politically relevant topics: energy transition, sustainability and digitization. This is also the case in the newly designed e-house, which wonderfully illustrates the advantages of smart building technology by means of interactive applications. Especially topics such as energy self-sufficient systems work, but also “smart health” offer practical insights.


  • Highest security standards via voice control without external cloud and KNX Secure for maximum data protection
  • Efficient energy management through artificial intelligence (AI) supported, manufacturer-based energy management
  • Link to artificial intelligence such as AI-supported breathing air monitoring for diabetes patients with emergency call function
  • Living comfort such as networked kitchen appliances and controllable cabinets
  • Intelligent networking through KNXnet/IP and Modbus/TCP
  • Innovative lighting technology via KNX controllable lighting and space scenes
  • Assistance systems such as inactivity monitoring, sensor floor, remote monitoring and connection to emergency call center
  • Smart control: Technology completely controllable via smartphone, tablet, smartwatch and voice
