Smart Buildings, Energy Savings, and Sustainability:  Are they connected?

Where:  NW Natural Building, 220 NW 2nd, Portland When:  March 15th, 2019  7:30am-2:00pm (Forum starts at 8:00am)

Why: Learn about what defines a Smart Building; the evolution of Smart Buildings; insights on where Smart Buildings are today, and what to expect in the future - and the technologies involved. The title insinuates what will be discussed:  “Smart Buildings, Energy Efficiency, and Sustainability:  Are they connected”.  In other words, are they one and the same?  The speakers will touch on all of these topics.

Presenter-Lance Patterson:  Sales Support Engineer, Distech Controls

Presentation Title:  Leveraging the Internet of Things for Today’s Smart Building

Subject:  Our industry is in the unique position to be able to leverage the Internet Of Things (IOT) and smart building technologies to not only increase energy efficiency, but also positively impact worker productivity in a building space.  As technology continues to change, it becomes increasingly important to future proof your building so that it’s capable of adapting improvements as they become available.  Your building’s automation system and IT infrastructure are key components in this effort, and if positioned correctly, can help you meet your future goals. 


Presenter-Kerry Meade:  Executive Director, Northwest Energy Efficiency Council (NEEC)

Presentation Title:  From Efficient to Smart Buildings: Shaping energy efficiency for its next life


Subject: The Northwest Energy Efficiency Council is a non-profit trade association that has represented the Pacific Northwest energy efficiency business community for over 20 years. The Smart Buildings Center Education Program is a non-profit charitable organization with a mission to accelerate the adoption and commercialization of smart buildings technologies and practices through education and demonstration. Co-located at the Smart Buildings Center in Seattle, WA, these two organizations are working collaboratively to drive innovative policy, train the building workforce for the future, demonstrate new technologies and smart practices, and convene the industry in educational forums that will ultimately increase economic and business productivity, and improve building performance and occupant well-being through creation of smart and efficient buildings. This presentation will share the story of these two organizations and their shared vision for the future.  


Presenter-Jeremy Richmond:  Building Performance Manager, MacDonald-Miller

Presentation Title:  Smart Buildings:  What’s inside?

Subject:  What makes a Smart Building?  Is it the HVAC system, Lighting, Metering or is it the operators.  Smart Buildings are comprised of an entire ecosystem that interact together seamlessly to the benefits of its occupants.  So what are the needs of a Smart Building? How do you maintain it? And most importantly how do you evolve it?
