Artificial Intelligence Steps In to Lower Carbon Footprint of Buildings

Dieter Holger of The Wall Street Journal reports on the use of AI to lower carbon footprints in buildings.

  • Developers are investing in artificial intelligence to track and predict energy use patterns to increase efficiency and lower the carbon footprint of retail spaces.

  • Eco-friendly spaces are on the market for less time and tenants are often more willing to pay a higher premium for these spaces.
