Sinclair: Last month, Robert Beverly provided an overview of the upcoming conference. What more can you tell us about the keynote speakers?

Seewald: As Robert mentioned last month, we have two great keynotes. In addition to being a professor of architectural engineering at Penn State, James Freihaut is also the Director of Operations and Technology for the Greater Philadelphia Innovation Cluster for Energy Efficient Buildings, one of the U.S. Department of Energy’s newly created Innovation Hubs.  Earlier this year, Dr. Freihaut was interviewed in Architect Magazine, and this article provides some insight into where the Hub will be headed with their efforts:

On Day 2, Massoud Amin, a professor of electrical and computer engineering, and head of the Minnesota Smart Grid Coalition, will share a vision of the power grid for the 21st century, the potential paths to its realization and the integral role of buildings in that vision. For a preview of Dr. Amin, you can listen to him at the University of Minnesota and on National Public Radio’s Science Friday:

CatNet SystemsSinclair: What about beyond the keynotes, what more can you tell us?

Seewald: Well, the program is full of speakers covering a range of topics that span all building systems, from the envelope to HVAC and lighting, to building automation and controls, to metering, dashboards and Smart Grid integration. We are also trying something new by interspersing workshops in the program. These workshops are intended to create an environment for much greater interaction among conference attendees by offering a topic with a moderated discussion lead by industry experts.

Sinclair: Where can prospective attendees learn more and register?

Seewald: All of the latest information is available at www.esmagconference.com. Early bird registration remains in effect until  August 14th, and attendees can save by registering sooner rather than later. We are looking forward to a fantastic conference in September!
