2020 Electrical Trends from Legrand

In an industry that constantly changes as new technologies emerge, it’s crucial the Electrical Contractors and building operaterators stay up-to-date with the latest trends in power and connectivity.

There’s no better time to discuss trends than a New Year, and with this in mind, we caught up with the experts at Legrand, a global specialist in electrical and network infrastructure solutions, for insights on the top trends that will shape the industry in the year ahead.

Power Everywhere

An increase in mobile devices has driven the demand for power everywhere, and consumers expect it to be delivered at their fingertips. Whether it’s outside, in a commercial office or public spaces like airports and lobbies, easy access to mobile charging not only increases productivity, but it also encourages longer visits. To meet this increase in demand, Legrand recommends its Solar Charging Kit, a retrofit charging station that allows users to power up outdoors.

Smart Devices

Consumers (specifically millennials) are becoming more accustomed to using smart devices, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, in their everyday lives and they expect their homes to follow suit. This thought process and expectation is driving manufacturers to develop the next wave of smart technology and further innovate in commercial spaces.

Future-Proofing

Many building owners/operators are faced with the issue of having to update electrical systems as technologies continue to advance at such a rapid pace, making Future-Proofing one of the biggest trends for 2020. The experts at Legrand recommend the PlugTail devices, which allow for easy changes to the receptacle types and styles without disruption to occupants.
