Smart Buildings, für die Siemens Gebäudeautomatisierungs- und Sicherheitstechnik anbietet, sind eine zusätzliche Möglichkeit des dezentralen Energiemanagements. Der Datenaustausch via intelligente Zähler ermöglicht es Energieversorgern, Einrichtungen der angeschlossenen Gebäude als dezentrale Energiepuffer nutzen zu können, zum Beispiel mit Hilfe thermischer Speicher oder thermoaktiven Baumaterialien. Damit übernehmen Smart Buildings die Funktion von Energiespeichern für Strom aus regenerativen Energiequellen, womit sich Lastspitzen reduzieren und Primärenergie sparen lassen.
