Doing More With Less
Water based systems have a long history of use in HVAC and provide many benefits; however, most of these systems are still being used as they were over 60 years ago.  Water has a high affinity for energy and we should be using it in a much wiser fashion.  This presentation will illustrate how to use water based systems to transfer energy more efficiently, save operational expense, help control systems operate with greater ease, and open other benefits to the overall building design and operation.

Traditional versus Sustainable:
Life Cycle Impacts of Insulation
The role of insulation is to keep us comfortable, while lowering energy costs, but our choice of insulation can have many more impacts to consider. With a slew of new products hitting the market, how do you know which choice is truly sustainable? Learn about what’s out there, what’s coming, and what to consider when making your insulation selection.

About The Presenter:
This presentation will explore ways a Building Automation System Master Plan can prepare for future technological advancements and enable today’s facility managers to harness the power of their building systems, to better utilize energy and to increase energy efficiency, reduce utility costs and improve occupant comfort.
Many building owners and operators currently face issues associated with their existing building control systems. These issues can include, but are not limited to: Outdated or obsolete technology, limitations of older generations of automation systems, multiple disparate control systems functioning in the same facility and concerns related to expansion or renovation plans. 
These issues lead to underutilization of the control system, robbing the users of the opportunity to maximize their investment in their automation technology.  I will discuss how to improve the efficiency of building systems with the ultimate goal of reducing utility and energy costs.
