KNX Association Addresses the European Standardisation Summit in Riga

The 4th European Standardisation Summit took place on 4 June 2015 in the National Library of Latvia in Riga and was part of the official programme of the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The theme for 2015 was ‘How standardisation can contribute to a cleaner and smarter economy in Europe,’ with a focus on the construction sector.

The goal of a ‘smarter and cleaner’ economy in the construction sector translates into improving the energy performance of buildings, integrating sustainability into architecture, developing smart cities, linking science and standardisation and advancing the design and management of buildings. The Summit’s break-out sessions built around these topics.

KNX Association at European Standardisation Summit in Riga

The KNX Association was invited as a speaker of the panel on the topic of smart homes/buildings in the break out session on ‘Energy efficiency of buildings’. Mr. Demarest, CTO of the KNX Association, used the occasion to stress that since 2003, Europe has had a home-grown standard on smart homes and buildings (EN 50090 series) thanks to the input provided by the CENELEC partner organization KNX. Since then, KNX and its community have invested heavily in exporting this technology, converting it into a worldwide standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1 to 7) and a Chinese standard (GB/T 20965). Thanks to the cooperation between the CLC technical committee TC205 and the CEN TC247, KNX also helped to shape the European standard EN 15232, which defines calculation methods to assess the effect of the use of building automation on the energy performance of buildings.
