An overview of new trends, concepts and ideas that have emerged since the 2008 AHR Expo, New York with a Global Perspective on Cutting Edge Sustainable Developments. The global session will present some stunning examples of real estate developments that are “pushing the envelope” and truly trying to transform the way people live, work and play. The session will discuss the lessons that can be learned from these developments and the impact they will have on our response to sustainability.  In addition a preview of new technologies and ideas that can be found at this year's Building Automation & Control Showcase plus the winner and honorable mentions  of the 2009 Innovation Awards will be provided.

Energy suppliers cannot generate enough energy in the coming years for the anticipated demand. The new economics is changing our society and our culture by demanding sustainability. Sustainability Connected Converged Conservation is now mandatory. This fact will drive billions of dollars in revenue for integrators over the next decade. The key to the future is to combine systems knowledge with Building Automation applications. This session will be an open discussion with practical examples of sustainable design and implementation using LEED and other evolving concepts.

9:30 – 10:30; Green Buildings, BIM and Evolving Energy Standards Dave Branson, Compliance Services Group, Inc. and Ken Sinclair, AutomatedBuildings.com

Our new focus on reducing our impacts on energy resources and changing climate conditions is increasing our emphasis on building planning, design, and construction techniques. Sustainable design using Building Information Modeling “BIM” with ever tightening energy standards such as ANSI/ASHRAE 90.1, is moving us towards more responsible building energy usage. BAS can be found at the heart of all these efforts. Information technology, whether illustrated by BIM, smart meters, smart grids or intelligent control systems, can help us monitor and control energy use and ultimately save both energy and cost providing an immediate return-on-investment in terms of higher employee productivity and reduced operating expenses. Please join us in this discussion.

11:00 – 12:00; “Building to Grid”: Enabling Buildings to Trade Their Energy Toby Considine, Systems Specialist, UNC and Ken Sinclair, AutomatedBuildings.com

B2G success is defined as enabling buildings to trade their energy. The goal of the Smart Grid standardization efforts is to design the information exchange and informational interoperability to enable healthy markets to emerge around energy use in buildings. Convergence is changing everything for everyone by leading us down the same data paths while using our data as it has never been used before. The protocol for communication to any layer of the cloud should be the same; internet ready, secured, and standards based plus ready for e-commerce. In this session come and stick your head in the newly formed computer and communication clouds.
