About Joshua Boltuch, what he'll talk about and Honest Buildings
Title Talk: If Walls Could Talk: The Web Transforms Real Estate
The buildings where we live, work and spend most of our time are responsible for more than 70% of all electricity consumed and over one third of all green house gas emissions in the U.S. The aggregated industries that finance, develop and service these buildings -- from bankers to architects to brokers -- are approximately 15% of the U.S. GDP, a multi-trillion dollar market. The opportunity is massive for innovative, scalable businesses to make an enormous environmental impact and a lot of money, so why hasn't the energy efficiency revolution taken off? Learn why the biggest catalyst is already in the palm of our hands, sitting in our laps, and on top of our desks. More than any other new technology or science, the web, and the ubiquitous access it provides to information, people and ideas will be the main driver of high performance, energy efficient buildings.
