The 2017 Building Energy Summit will take place on April 27th in Washington, D.C., U.S. It is an annual conference designed to educate building owners and operators on energy efficient technologies and solutions, collaborate on best practices, share successful case studies, and provide the resources needed to take action. This year’s Summit will focus on the integration of new technologies into building operations — from smart building solutions, to advanced data and analytics, to cloud based monitoring and controls. Senior real estate executives will join technology and energy experts to present new approaches to efficiency in buildings, as well as the added benefits associated with creating a better workplace.
The Summit includes keynote presentations by global leaders, educational breakout sessions for hands-on learning, case study presentations demonstrating real projects and real results, and networking opportunities for collaborating with colleagues and solution providers. Speakers will present case studies of some of the most technologically advanced and energy efficient buildings in the country. Learn what major corporations, building owners, tenants, cities, and governmental agencies are doing to support energy efficiency and sustainability.
The luncheon keynote speaker is Dr. Joseph Allen, Assistant Professor of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and will be discussing The Impact of Green Buildings on Cognitive Function, the impact of the indoor environment on heath, wellness, and productivity. He will share the new findings from Study 2 of the groundbreaking CogFx Study, which researches and substantiates the impact of green buildings on human health and productivity. This research quantifies significant value to the people and companies working in those buildings, as well as to the building owners.
