Luncheon Briefing: Active Energy Management as a Path to 30% Energy Savings in High Performance Buildings

Business and government are constantly looking at ways to effectively reduce costs and still deliver quality goods and services. One way to reduce costs and ultimately improve the bottom line is to look at ongoing energy use and costs associated with the operation of a building or facility. Traditional methods often fall short of achieving the desired result. Rather, a holistic view of the building, considering how various components and systems work together and how energy is consumed will be a better approach for business and for government. It will provide a compelling challenge to those who legislate and regulate buildings and the thousands of components they contain. Please join us for a lively discussion with experts on building systems and total energy use as a means to realize 30% energy savings in high performance buildings.
