Federal Test Bed Programs
Date: Tuesday, August 15, 10:30am – 12:00pm
Description: This session reviews the Federal Technology Demonstration Programs currently used to identify new and innovative technologies. Speakers from each program will provide an overview of each program, discuss how technologies are selected, and describe how new technologies and ideas can be submitted for future validation.
Deploying Advanced Technologies
Date: Tuesday, August 15 , 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Description: Join the General Services Administration’s Green Proving Ground as it leads a panel discussion with energy service companies (ESCOs), agency energy managers, financers, and technology providers as they review successful deployment strategies for new and underutilized technologies. Successful deployment requires both ESCOs and federal energy managers to champion innovative practices. Make the most out of your energy savings performance contract/utility energy service contract by staying informed about the state of the art and considering technologies at the right point in the development process.
Advanced Smart Labs Energy Technologies
Date: Tuesday, August 15, 4:00pm – 5:30pm
Description: Attendees will learn how to drive improvement in energy efficiency and sustainability performance from forward leaning laboratories. Learn from experts in the field, including the leaders of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Smart Labs Accelerator program, how to overcome the special challenges of labs and how to build roadmaps for success.
Advanced HVAC Diagnostics and Control Strategies
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 8:30am – 10:00am
Description: Learn some of the latest and most innovative methods to get the most out of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. This panel of experts will demonstrate HVAC operational and control strategies that exist today that allow your systems to operate more intelligently and efficiently without replacing or compromising your existing building automation system.
Advanced Energy Storage
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 10:30am – 12:00pm
Description: Attendees will learn about available technologies and benefits for implementing advanced energy storage solutions. New technologies are coming on the market, and old technologies are being dusted off and updated to make energy storage an economical and viable option for facility and campus energy and cost savings strategies. Panelists will show how building automation technology can facilitate seamless integration of energy storage into building facility power systems.
Dynamic Facades: Integrating Windows, Lighting, HVAC, and Building Controls
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Description: Learn about integrating advanced dynamic building facades with lighting and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to extract large energy and peak demand savings. The technology addressed will include automated exterior shading and dynamic glass that changes its optical characteristics in concert with energy management control systems. The session will include case studies of integrated facades and advanced control strategies implemented in private and federal building with verified energy performance metrics.
Environmental Security Technology Certification Program Deep Dive
Date: Wednesday, August 16, 4:00pm – 5:30pm
Description: This session highlights promising energy technologies that have been evaluated through the U.S. Department of Defense Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP). Federal energy professionals will learn about some new innovative technologies ready for implementation and will have a chance to engage with the technology developers through a question-and-answer session. Attendees will also learn how technology developers successfully use demonstration programs such as ESTCP and funding from other federal programs to develop and commercialize their technologies.
Advanced Building Materials
Date: Thursday, August 17, 8:30am – 9:30am
Description: Attendees will learn about various advanced building materials, from passive materials used in retrofit applications to new compositions of building materials such as glass and brick. Panelists will lead a conversation about various new technologies ready for implementation today at your facility that you may have never heard about.
Using the Internet of Things for Efficiency and Resilience
Date: Thursday, August 17, 9:45am – 11:15am
Description: Learn how Internet of Things (IoT) platforms, devices, and sensors can be implemented and integrated to maximize resiliency, efficiency, and savings in federal facilities. IoT hyper-connects demand, supply, distribution, and storage in an environment in which all aspects become more responsive, dynamic, and optimized. The session will also include discussions on practical and available technology as well as strategies for implementation.
