This track highlights new and emerging technologies which address fundamental building needs like auditing, HVAC, lighting, water, and building envelope. Learn about successful deployment strategies from technology developers, industry experts and Federal government implementers. Explore the sessions below:
Advanced Auditing Technologies and Techniques
Date: Tuesday, August 15, 10:30am – 12:00pm
Description: Understand how new auditing technologies can ensure your project prioritizes the most impactful Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs). Traditionally, the industry has had wide variability in auditing approaches, so analyses of ECMs could vary widely. New auditing approaches, including dynamic, physics-based simulations, allow energy managers and energy service companies to run “what-if” scenarios easily to predict more precise impacts of ECMs and the interactive effects of ECMs so they can be packaged and prioritized with confidence.
Advanced Lighting and Lighting Controls
Date: Tuesday, August 15, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Description: Attendees will learn about the latest advances in lighting and lighting controls. Panelists will discuss new lighting technology implemented in various government facilities and the advancements in lighting controls that make energy savings methodologies, such as demand response, daylighting, and occupancy light level control, a reality.
Advanced Water Management
Date: Tuesday, August 15, 4:00pm – 5:30pm
Description: Discover the latest technological advances in water efficiency from industry leaders. Our panel of experts will present product innovations and metering strategies, as well as demonstrate how they can be applied to existing infrastructure to identify and minimize water waste and improve water management.
Using Your Building’s Envelope to Minimize Heating and Cooling Loads
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 8:30am – 10:00am
Description: This session will provide a thorough overview of the core technical issues and market opportunities for reducing the thermal loads for heating and cooling (envelope). The speakers will address overall guidelines for insulation, as well as unique opportunities for building, wall and roof retrofits, air leakage testing, and sealing practices.
Window System Technologies and Solutions
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 10:30am – 12:00pm
Description: This session will address the overall importance of windows and their impact on building performance. Presenters will also address the state of the art in window replacement and upgrade opportunities, including market-ready advanced commercial windows with low-conductive, high-structural performance.
Advanced Building Automation
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Description: Learn about modern control strategies that maximize energy efficiency and how to implement them cost effectively in buildings that have legacy control systems. This session will give you the tools necessary to know what measures you can implement with your existing controls system and understand new technologies available to increase the capabilities of your system.
Advanced HVAC Technologies
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 4:00pm – 5:30pm
Description: Nearly half of the energy consumed by government buildings is used for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. This session will explore some of the state-of-the-art technologies available to help you operate your building more efficiently and effectively.
Advanced Boiler Technologies
Date: Thursday, August 17, 8:30am – 9:30am
Description: Boilers play a vital role in government buildings but are often taken for granted. This session will investigate revolutionary boiler technology and engineering advances that will provide significant benefits to your built environment.
Data Center Strategies for Energy Reduction
Date: Thursday, August 17, 9:45am – 11:15am
Description: Attendees will learn about the energy savings strategies and best practices for operating their data centers. Panelists will discuss the strategies being employed by government, business, and industry partners—including advanced design, cooling technologies, consolidation, and operation and maintenance approaches.
