Achieving Optimum Energy Efficiency in Buildings - New Benchmarks Being Set - 7/26/2018
Five years ago, the driving factor for smart buildings was energy costs. While operational efficiency and occupant experience have been added to the discussion, energy savings still play an important role in the smart building strategy. Energy usage in buildings accounts for over 40% of electrical consumption which has ties to coal, natural gas, petroleum and nuclear energy. Energy waste in buildings is easily evident and provides great opportunities when addressed. Advanced energy analytics, enhanced building automation monitoring, new lighting solutions, low voltage infrastructure, micro grids and other technologies are reshaping the building energy landscape. This webinar will bring best practices and new benchmarks into focus.

Kevin Bates is the owner of Sharp Development company. Over the past six years, he has concentrated on retrofitting older generation concrete tilt-up buildings that are carbon neutral, have a net zero energy bill as well as a strong emphasis on the health and wellness of the interior environment for the occupants. The driver for Kevin is to demonstrate that this way of repurposing existing building stock can be done in a manner that is more profitable for the ownership than the less expensive way of building to meet minimum code.
