With record attendance of nearly 600 building commissioning, energy management and test & balance professionals, CxEnergy 2018 again broke all previous marks. The crowd was treated to the latest technologies by exhibitors, attended an array of educational sessions and workshops and enjoyed networking opportunities. In addition, nearly 100 industry professionals were credentialed in the presenting organizations’ certification programs.
The 32-session technical program covered topics and case studies building envelope/enclosure commissioning, technology & innovation, energy management, commissioning specialty systems, policy & financial issues, lighting, water management, data centers, microgrids, energy storage and more. Attendees earned more than 4,000 AIA and other continuing education credits from CxEnergy 2018 programming.
CxEnergy participants included representatives from twelve universities, top names in commissioning and engineering,
and owner/facility management companies and organizations including CBRE; ICF; ABM; Siemens; Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory; New York City Department of Buildings; North Slope Borough (Department of Capital Improvement
Program Management) and more.
With over 50 sponsors and exhibitors, the CxEnergy expo hall showcased a variety of companies that provide products and services. Their offerings ranged from software, controls, instruments, and metering devices to consultative services in engineering and building management. “CxEnergy was the event chosen to announce the launch of our mobile CxA app in front of decision makers in the Cx industry,” says Eric Forman, CEO and president of Facility Grid. “Sponsoring and exhibiting at CxEnergy gave us a chance to put ourselves in front of an audience that is leading thousands of Cx and energy management projects.”
CxEnergy featured a Commissioning Authority (CxA) certification workshop, a Test & Balance (TAB) seminar, and an Energy Management Professional (EMP) seminar. The EMP credential has achieved accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and became a recognized certification by the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines (BBWG) program.
Planning for CxEnergy 2019 is underway and presenting organizations are eager to build upon the success of the 2018
event. Presenting organizations at Cxenergy 2019 will announce the dates and location of the event next month.
