Urban Green Council August Forum: Building Brains and the Art of Controls

August 5, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

From megscon.com

The Urban Green Council presents a forum on smart buildings that can reduce energy usage.

In today’s built environment, managing a facility requires more than just brainpower.  At the center of today’s high performance buildings are smart control systems that can provide the best thermal comfort for occupants, while reducing consumption and energy costs.  New technology is emerging constantly that supports today’s facility managers in operating these complex systems, from their personal computers or even their phones.

Join the Emerging Professionals for our August forum as we discuss state of the art controls, smart buildings, and the future of controls with representatives from Siemens.
