Empowering Smart Buildings: Improving Productivity and Reducing Operating Costs
730am – 930am
Smart Buildings Center
This event serves as a kick off for the newly designated 501(c)3 organization, the Smart Buildings Center Education Program (SBC-EP). This non-profit is driven by an educational mission to inform stakeholders in the built environment of the productivity and cost benefits of deploying data driven smart building strategies.
Beginning with an informal light breakfast, attendees will be able to network and visit resource kiosks which feature items such as the real time energy performance dashboard (SkySpark) tracking building system performance of the Pacific Tower. Attendees will also see displays of building diagnostic tools available from the Tool Lending Library housed at the SBC. A smart screen board will be accessible that allows participants to view analysis visualizations of energy and performance data.
The formal program begins at 8:15am with a welcome address by Jim Baggs, Customer Service, Communications & Regulatory Affairs Officer of Seattle City Light. At 8:30am, the SBC Board of Directors will participate in a facilitated panel discussion that highlights smart building technologies and practices and how this region is taking a leadership position in bringing these ideas to market.
