Babel Buster Network Gateways: Big Features. Small Price.
AHR Expo 2010 Orlando, Free Education Sessions power points
Ken Sinclair Editor/Owner
Our education sessions were all well received and the mood was that folks are ready to except and be part of the necessary change. All want to be "Bad Ass"
For an Overview of the sessions
I have included a link to the actual power point presentations. I am sorry that there are no notes but we all speak off the cuff to the slides.
1:30 pm Monday afternoon January 25 - Dave Branson and Ken Sinclair
2. Applications for BIM in Existing Buildings and Cloud Document Management
Building Information Model (BIM) software and processes leverage the power of visual relational databases to improve decision making and coordination throughout the building design effort. New visualization and simulation tools reveal the effects of decisions made prior to the commitment of funds to the construction phase, thereby reducing the effects of poor decisions on the designers, builders, owners, operators and insurers. In similar fashion, Cloud Computing provides a collaborative process that leverages web-based BIM capabilities and traditional Document Management to improve coordination of various disciplines during the design process.

The Cloud for the real estate industry has become real. As we see applications and services move 'off-site' and offered and provided by hosted service providers (SaaS or Software as a Service), you can start to imagine the opportunities for managing real estate, reducing energy and providing value-added applications to the users of buildings. Examples such as intelligent automated continuous commissioning a Path to Optimized Operations & Energy Efficiency. Our new mission is to expose how the dot com & org are using the cloud to provide their products and services. The identification and use of these valuable industry cloud connectors is essential to propel our industry forward at warp speed so it can radically change to survive.
1:30 pm Tuesday January 26 Jack McGowan, Anto Budiardjo & Ken Sinclair
Designing and leveraging building systems technology to achieve both comfort and efficiency provides challenges under normal conditions, but add Electrical Grid interactions with real time pricing and it is a whole new game. Energy Business Intelligence and middleware technology is now being introduced to the building and HVAC space by Information Technology (IT) companies. Come join us as we discuss what this all means to our industry.
3:00 pm Tuesday January 26 Toby Considine and Ken Sinclair
5. Collaborative Energy: Informed Communities of Building Systems
New smart grid standards exchange information rather than control signals with buildings-based systems. Three information exchanges, (1) energy scarcity, quality, and value, (2) grid and market events and (3) live energy usage information are the basis of collaborative energy. Building systems from BAS to home appliance to consumer electronics will be expected to share such information as well. A common information component to share schedules and calendars between building systems, enterprise activities, smart grid, and financial markets is just now coming out of the IETF.
Systems will cooperate as autonomous agents using advanced energy profiles to move beyond limiting energy use to aggregate load shaping within the building. Load shape and load control will maximize the value of distributed energy resources (DER) and Near Grid Buildings. Loose integration will create a premium on autonomous performance and inter-system collaboration. Energy and schedule aware systems will compete on richness of user interface. Learn how these new expectations will change consumer and owner purchasing decisions.
