Green Data Centers & Critical Facilities: Aligning Costs, Performance, & Sustainability

Data centers, broadcasting stations, and mission critical facilities are some of the leading energy and resource consumers in the built environment. Data production is expected to be 44 times greater in 2020 than in 2009, and the capture and control of more data means more energy and water required for data storage and processing. What are the latest strategies and technologies to reduce costs, increase efficiency and overall productivity? Who are the stakeholders involved? What are some best practices and lessons learned in data center management and efficiency?

Net Zero and Positive Energy Buildings: A Cost-Effective Framework

Assembling innovators around setting targets, standardization, and stakeholder engagement

 

As one of the primary energy consumers, buildings are increasingly looking to Net Zero and Positive Energy models as options for reducing energy use. These buildings combine on-site renewable energy sources such PVs or wind turbines with energy efficient HVAC, appliances and lighting systems to produce as much and in some cases more energy than they consume. Most ZNEB buildings are connected to the grid in order to pull energy when renewable generation cannot meet the demand load and conversely transfer energy when there is a surplus. What will the new generation of Net Zero and Positive Energy buildings entail? How can we harness and share real-time data with occupants in order to keep their behaviors energy efficient? This session will explore the technologies and incentives that will enable Net Zero and Positive Energy buildings to become the standard in sustainable design.

Evaluating Energy Efficiency Investments: Connecting Energy Performance to Valuation in Commercial and High End Residential Buildings

Using Data Transparency to Optimize Opportunity and ROI

 

Higher building performance and real estate value are tied in several ways. More efficient buildings have lower operating and maintenance costs, and higher tenant comfort, which lead to higher retention rates. In several marketplaces, especially commercial office spaces, green building certifications such as LEED are attracting more prestigious clients. With the imminent public release of benchmarking data for buildings throughout the country, and in New York through Local Law 84, there is an even stronger advantage  from implementing energy efficient strategies and technologies. In this panel, we look at the business case for high performance buildings.

Modernizing Mobility: Engaging Start-Ups, Entrepreneurs & Policy Makers in Smart Transportation

Demand for reliability and efficiency as well as higher economic concerns for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from consumers have initiated the planning of a more intelligent transportation system. Motor vehicle transport has peaked in most developed countries resulting in technological advances in alternative modes of transportation such as public transport, walkable cities, and electric vehicles. However, these changes also raise issues in grid stabilization (to insure peak demands are met). EV charging stations, smart parking, and real time data management must be implemented in order to achieve a more efficient infrastructure. This session will explore the integral components and practices of smart transportation systems including adopted technologies and how they are sufficiently powered.

AGRION Disrupt 100:

Who are the innovators and game changers in transportation? What are the systems which are going to loom and change the way inhabitants move within large urban areas and the way public agencies and private transporters manage their fleet and organization? AGRION will present and give the floor to the top 25 innovative companies and startups who will play a role in transportation and city mobility in the next 15 years.
