Technology advances over the past decade have made learning environments more efficient, personalized and comfortable, but these advances come at a cost. And the costs are busting the budgets of school district and college and university operations, leaving them cash-strapped as they attempt to implement sustainability measures. Ironically, some of these measures are enabled by the same intelligent building technologies that strain budgets.
A webinar that provides information to education-based administrators, architects and engineering staff, and energy services providers on developing a sustainability strategy and how and where to find resources to overcome these challenges will be conducted Thursday, July 19, 2018. The webinar begins with a discussion of the scope of sustainability-related measures, examines the role of technologies such as the IoT and provides tips on how to find funding and resources.
