Building Energy Summit to Examine Impact of IoT and Smart Building Technologies

Global visionaries from companies like Marriott, Cisco and JLL, will open the 2016 Building Energy Summit, taking place on March 16 in Washington D.C., with a look at how today’s technologies are changing the way commercial buildings are built, managed and experienced.

The 2016 Building Energy Summit is built around the theme of “Redefining Efficiency in the Built Environment.” This annual event brings together hundreds of commercial building owners, energy experts and technology pioneers to explore strategies, collaborate on best practices, share successful case studies and provide the resources for benchmarking buildings, monitoring real-time energy usage, analyzing operational data, making efficient upgrades and changes, and integrating the latest technologies to significantly cut energy consumption.

“This year’s Summit will examine how the Internet of Things, data and analytics and smart building technologies are rapidly transforming building efficiency and how we experience commercial buildings,” says Darlene Pope, event producer and senior vice president, Energy and Sustainability Services, JLL. “In addition, we’re going to continue the conversations that began at COP21 about the role of commercial buildings in reducing greenhouse gases and combating climate change.”

The opening general session will focus on “Real Estate Beyond the Digital Age,” with presentations on transformational building technologies and the employee experience, featuring:

  • John Baekelmans, CTO, Internet of Everything (IoE) Solutions Group, Cisco
  • Maureen Ehrenberg, executive managing director of Integrated Facilities Management (IFM), JLL
  • Douglas Rath, senior director of Energy & Environment, Americas Continent, Marriott International Inc.

The 2016 Building Energy Summit includes more than 50 speakers in 16 educational sessions and four subject tracks. Key sessions include:

  • What’s Next: The Impact of COP21 on Global Sustainability Efforts
  • Smart Buildings: Define, Design, and Deliver
