Exploring the application of internet of things (IoT) for energy efficient buildings in Nigeria. A review
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe global adoption of smart building technologies has been facilitated by the present shift toward Internet of Things (IoT). Despite its benefits, its adoption is still relatively low in developing nations like Nigeria. Therefore, this paper aims to investigate the application of IoT for greatest energy efficiency in buildings, with a greater focus on Nigeria. A review of relevant literature was carried out, to identify the application of IoT in buildings, the current state of IoT application in the Nigerian built environment sector, characteristics and current practices of Nigerian residential buildings regarding energy consumption patterns. A total of 60 papers were reviewed using a narrative and content analysis method. This paper highlights; the lack of smart sustainable building construction in Nigerian and explores the application of IoT for monitoring and visualising the performance of buildings in Nigeria with the aim of optimising efficiency in energy usage. The review has identified research gaps and potentials which can be explored further.
