What are the best examples of how IoT can help with infrastructure upgrades of buildings to reduce greenhouse gas emissions?

In a Scientific American articleDavid Biello writes “Buildings worldwide contribute around one third of all greenhouse gas emissions (43 percent in the U.S. alone).”

In another Scientific American Article, Biello writes: “New York City has nearly one million buildings—many of them woefully energy inefficient. Insulation is spotty at best, single-paned windows leak heat in winter and cool air in summer, and the untold millions of electric appliances they hold suck energy from the grid—many even when turned off. As a result, buildings contribute 79 percent of the Big Apple’s 60 million metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, according to the Mayor’s Long-Term Planning and Sustainability Office. . . .”
