We had a great webinar on October 19th with SmartBuildingsCenter.org and here now is the recording so that you can view at your leisure: The Future of Building Sustainability Occupancy – Safety, Efficiency, and Sustainability in a Post-Covid World.
Are you aware that the No. 1 emitter of greenhouse gas emissions is not industry or transportation, but in fact buildings, representing 39% of all global GhG. Furthermore, almost 75% of those building-based emissions come from day-to-day operations – heating, cooling, ventilating, and lighting. And to make things worse, it is estimated that about 30% of the energy used in buildings is wasted. Why? One big problem is that buildings’ HVAC systems are often run with set schedules rather than being dynamic to reflect occupancy, usage, environment, and other usage factors.
With more information, like real-time occupancy, buildings can make smarter decisions on reducing CO2 emissions by saving energy. Essentially, turn it off when no one is home.
Attend this webinar on Tuesday, October 19th at noon PST/ 3 pm EST (or view the recording when it’s available) and hear from panelist experts about the latest technology and artificial intelligence solutions for running HVAC systems and building controls to optimize for energy savings and sustainability.
The following are the topic areas of discussion and likely key takeaways:
- Learn how to reduce energy costs by 30 to 40%
- Find out what it takes to be on the leading edge of sustainability innovations
- Learn first-hand how customers are using this today to reduce their energy and C02 gas emissions
- Know how to ensure optimal uptime, and run efficiently and effectively for comfort and air quality
