Last week the second annual Smart Buildings Exchange (SBX) delivered a value-packed three days of conversations focused on the market opportunity for smart buildings and their role in our clean energy future.
The conference kicked off with an Opening Plenary session featuring Darlene Pope, President of Planon, North America, who is a globally recognized subject matter expert and visionary in the smart building industry with more than 30 years of experience in commercial real estate, technology, and smart building consulting.
Following the Opening Plenary session were sessions on Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings, Building System Interoperability, Demystifying Digital Twin Technology, and Making Existing Buildings Smarter.
The second day of the conference began with a Plenary Session during which Ash Awad, the Chief Market Officer for McKinstry, moderated a panel where senior executives: Debra Smith of Seattle City Light, Wayne O’Connor of Creative Energy, David Woodson of University of Washington, Greg Smith of Urban Visions, and Andy Wappler of Puget Sound Energy discussed the future of energy services and the built environment. The day continued with sessions on the Role of Smart Buildings in Reducing Carbon Emissions, Workforce Development Opportunities, Achieving and Maintaining Indoor Environmental Quality, and Making Smart Actionable.
The third and final day of the conference featured an in-person discussion on building performance data and how smart technologies can help building owners and managers in fulfilling requirements related to energy and ESG reporting. The session was also live streamed for virtual participation, and it was great to convene in a hybrid format for the first time in nearly three years!
All SBX session recordings are now available on the Smart Buildings Center YouTube Channel so you can watch any you missed and rewatch any you enjoyed.
Thank you to all sponsors, planning committee members, speakers, and attendees who helped make the event a success!
