Event description

Description

A lot of work has been done to improve the energy efficiency of buildings, including the installation of advanced lighting, HVAC and airflow systems, as well as building envelope technologies and integrated building and energy management systems. Many companies have been reaping the benefits of these new technologies and approaches and are looking for ways to build on this success and take their energy efficiency and clean power efforts to the next levels.

Prospect Silicon Valley, Carnegie Mellon University’s Scott Institute for Energy Innovation, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s Energy Technologies Area, and the Northern California community of the US Green Building Council are sponsoring this event: Driving Innovation, Efficiency, and Performance in the Built Environment. We will discuss technologies under development and how these hardware and software solutions can be deployed in pilots or limited deployments to demonstrate their ability to have a material impact on energy performance or clean power generation and consumption in the built environment.

Join us for our first networking event of the year!

Introductions / Welcome:

Kelly Kline
Economic Development Director and Chief Innovation Officer for the City of Fremont

As the Economic Development Director and Chief Innovation Officer for the City of Fremont, Kelly serves as a partner with the business community in creating a strong and diverse local economy that fosters growth and innovation. Fremont’s efforts to become more “strategically urban” is forging new ground in how a suburban community can embrace smart city tactics, employment-focused development, public amenities, and greater density near transit. Kelly is a frequent writer and speaker on trends related to advanced manufacturing, the maker movement, and workforce development. Kelly has a Master’s Degree in Public Administration. You can follow her on Twitter, @kellyhkline and on the Fremont blog, “Takes from Silicon Valley East."

Speakers:

Dr. Burcu Akinci
Paul Christiano Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Associate Dean for Research at the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University

Dr. Burcu Akinci is the Paul Christiano Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Associate Dean for Research at the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. She also co-directs Smart Infrastructure Institute which conducts research on data-driven awareness about infrastructure systems, advanced information models and visualization approaches, and proactive decision support.

Dr. Akinci’s research interests modeling and reasoning about information rich histories of buildings and infrastructure systems, to streamline construction and infrastructure operations and management. She specifically focuses on investigating utilization and integration of building information models with data capture technologies, such as 3D imaging and embedded sensors to capture semantically-rich as-built histories of construction projects and infrastructure operations and to support proactive operations and management.


Rich Brown
Research Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Rich Brown is a research scientist in the Building Technologies and Urban Systems Division, where he has conducted research on energy use in buildings for over 20 years. He leads a team that is working to understand and develop solutions to address the growing energy use of electronics and miscellaneous equipment in buildings. His research interests include energy efficient digital networks, extreme efficiency in off-grid applications, data centers, and field monitoring of miscellaneous equipment in buildings. He leads LBNL's technical support to the EPA Energy Star product labeling program. He holds an M.A. degree from the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California at Berkeley, and a B.S.E. in Engineering and Management Systems from Princeton University.
