Energy Data and the Science of Smart Buildings

The era of "smart" buildings is upon us. But what exactly makes a building "smart?" High-resolution energy data and artificial intelligence are changing the way operators and owners look at their facilities. In this session we will explore real-world case studies where the introduction of circuit and device-level energy monitoring, coupled with sophisticated AI and human support, have produced insights and actions that would otherwise have been impossible.
