5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

The trend in energy consumption analytics is to know how your building is operating - in real time.  The data will be collected from building energy management systems (BEMS) and then analyzed in various ways to inform building owners and facility managers where exactly their buildings are using energy and how to then optimize energy performance.  The more integrated the BEMS is with the HVAC, lighting, water, process and other building functions, the more costly and complicated systems will be.  Balancing the cost of investment with the level of information desired must be considered as these systems get deployed in more and more buildings.  Some systems have been installed for years; others are being developed with much anticipation from the promise of the Internet of Things.  Join in this discussion as we look more closely at the development of building and home energy management systems. Moderated by Brindley Byrd.
