MILWAUKEE, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Efforts to go green often focus on
recycling and conserving water, but the biggest impact lies in buildings that
consume 40 percent of the world's energy.

The United Arab Emirates has some of the most sophisticated and spectacular
buildings in the world. This degree of sophistication and comfort requires
sizeable amounts of energy, leading to consumption of natural resources and an
increase in carbon footprints.

Johnson Controls, the global leader in building efficiency, joined
international energy experts to demonstrate the Panoptix solution, a blend of
software and services to help single building owners or managers of global
enterprises track and improve the performance of their buildings. Cloud-based
apps provide visibility into how every system, subsystem and device is
functioning. Building managers then use the information to improve building
performance, reduce energy use and increase the comfort of occupants.

Building technologies, such as the Panoptix solution, address many of the
requirements in the Green Economy Initiative, a long-term plan announced a
year ago in the UAE to build a green economy. The initiative includes six
major fields covering a wide range of legislation, policies and projects, many
of which are focused on making public and private sector buildings more
sustainable by 2014.
