Human Comfort – Why Do HVAC Systems Suck So Much?
Trillion Dollar Opportunity in Transforming Existing Buildings
If you had $3-$5 million to invest into a 50,000 sq ft office building
could you significantly reduce energy consumption, improve space
utilization, and increase worker productivity?
Search of a Brain for our Self-Driving Buildings ...it’s only a
matter of time before someone creates the self-learning software brain
that the self-driving building requires.
Sharing to Drive Learning Only if you can hire good people,
train them well, and ensure they continue to learn throughout their
career will we see industry, from the operators to the engineers,
achieve the potential we all know is there.
- Continuous Optimization Getting the Most out
of Your Building Automation System
on ConnectivityWeek & www.YoungEnergy.org Network Being part of
Young Energy was definitely one the most fulfilling experiences of my
Network I think the development of a smart grid that
integrates energy efficiency and sustainable energy solutions seems
like a no-brainer to people in my generation.
