The Power of the Internet of Things: Harnessing IoT for Energy Efficiency
There is no shortage of hype around the Internet of Things (IoT), but is anyone actually taking advantage of it in existing facilities to optimize building performance? This session will review the opportunity IoT presents for real-time data monitoring to reduce waste, remotely control and manage equipment, and increase energy efficiency-all through a cost-effective means. The presentation will also highlight specific applications where implementing IoT with certain equipment within the building system can help both engineers and property managers collect and monitor real-time data, remotely manage equipment, and optimize building performance. It will also use specific case studies to discuss how the Internet of Things can make challenges, such as energy management across a portfolio, both easier and economical.
