2020 Recorded Webinars
This webinar will introduce smart buildings technologies and practices that harness building data and controls to optimize performance and enable more efficient, comfortable, and cost-effective operations. Opportunities for building retrofits and new construction provide promising pathways for buildings to incrementally implement new technologies and practices to increase efficiency, intelligence, and performance of buildings. Hear from presenters about resources available to help you explore opportunities to make your buildings smarter. (Recorded Feb. 26, 2020)
Speaker: Melissa Sokolowsky, Smart Buildings Center
Focused on pump system optimization, this webinar will give attendees a primer on how pumps operate, pump applications in buildings, how pumps consume energy, and how they can be controlled to optimize energy consumption. Other topics include new DOE pump regulations, market changes, and circulator pump incentive programs. (Recorded April 1, 2020)
Speaker: Peter Gaydon, Hydraulic Institute
The building systems relied upon to improve operational efficiency, safety, and security may be one of the biggest risks to actually improving operational efficiency, safety, and security. Have those cameras or BMS controllers just increased the threat of being hacked? Are biometric readers being used for access control? Do organizational purchasing practices require you to purchase the lowest cost solutions? Are you certain you’re getting what you’ve paid for? Attend this webinar to learn how collaborative partnerships between building management, information technology, security, and purchasing will help your building reach the goal of being a smart building.(Recorded April 22, 2020)
Speaker: Wendi Walsh, Aronson Security Group
