Energy Efficient. Cost Effective. That’s the goal of the building engineer or facility manager. Today’s building energy management information systems (BEMIS), combined with IoT (Internet of Things), makes being both energy efficient and cost effective not only possible, but so much easier – and smarter.

... and More You Shouldn’t Have Missed at High Performance Buildings + Workplaces

I recently returned from the NFMT High-Performance Building and Workplaces (HBP+W) conference in Austin, Texas. If you know me, you know that over the years I have attended hundreds of these types of industry conferences, as an attendee, a business owner, an exhibitor, and more recently as a presenter, workshop leader and keynote speaker.logo-HPB2016.svg

There is no better opportunity to network with your peers, find out what’s new, and learn industry best practices. The NFMT/HPB+W events always have speakers with timely messages and practical information. Many of the exhibitors offer hands-on opportunities to see how you can improve your operations, save money and get better results with the latest in products and technology.

Here are five reasons attending HPB+W was absolutely worth my time and my company’s money!

How BEMIS Can Help Optimize HVAC Efficiency and Save Money

In a recent study, The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (www.aceee.org) found that “Commercial buildings could save up to $60 billion if investments in energy efficiency were ramped up by just 1-4%.”

When I was interviewed a year and a half ago and posted this blog in advance of my talk at NFMT Vegas 2014, there weren’t many companies promoting, or providing, building energy management information systems. Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) and Building Automation systems (BAS) were definitely part of the conversation, but there wasn’t much out there at that time about Building Energy Management Information Systems (BEMIS). Today they are becoming increasingly popular, and it’s easy to see why.

NREL_slide_75_crop.jpgA quality BEMIS will have a software-based front end that can run reports as well as conduct diagnostic testing and provide a clear picture of the building’s performance – through easy-to-understand visuals.  And today’s BEMIS does more than simply offer reports. It provides feedback, incorporating the tools and reporting capabilities from the BAS as well as fault detection, diagnostic tools and automated system optimization technologies.
