"Our Connection Collection"

Not sure that any of us could have projected the amount of things our buildings would be connected to and interact with. Today our understanding of the possible of connection is much of the value we provide. As an industry we need to start collecting, quantifying and qualifying all of the possible connections to our buildings.  Our November issue provides a start but I would like all our readers to join in helping us build "Our Connection Collection"

Ken Sinclair - EditorialA great line up interviews and articles/columns talking to the connection complexities that are a part of our Collection. Some great examples from this issue below.

Connected Building Roadmap - The intent of the session was to ask the attendees to look into the future, and tell BC Hydro what connected buildings would look like in ten years, and what technologies or other items of interest might appear in the meantime.

Take the NIST Transactive Energy Challenge Increasing intelligence in appliances and control systems and the evolving “Internet of Things” create opportunities for automating energy transactions with flexibility, so that distributed intelligent agents can work collaboratively to balance the electric power system while maximizing value for consumers.

Perfect Storm - portfolio managers have no knowledge or solution for fully ‘IoT’ing’

Survey of 800+ Building Professionals - The most significant finding was the overall misunderstanding is trying to provide a starting point for us all to better understand the possible of connection. In addition to using our web site we are weaving information in and out of social media using our and other's LinkedIn Groups, my twitter feed and this month a try at "A New Menu View Pinterest".....The visual bookmarking tool that helps you discover and save creative ideas.   Link to my review
