Imagine a building that operates independent of our urban energy grids. A building that automatically adapts its behavior to the needs of each occupant and user, intelligently balancing to the preferences of the owner. A building that configures itself to provide a separate energy source for its consumption, health and safety in the most appropriate way considering all the relevant risks and conditions. A building not only functional and efficient but offers alternative lifestyle that improves productivity. An autonomous building is a type of building that automatically reaches out to our nearest available resources and engages within its provided financial budget and with minimal artificial human intervention and customization. The road to autonomy is a slow journey that starts by breaking down building systems into a network of smaller components.
