Presentation Details

Why machine learning is the future of energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality

Without a building automation system or robust energy audit, most commercial buildings aren’t realizing their full efficiency potential – and most building owners aren’t willing to pay for those improvements in the first place. But now, thanks to cutting-edge wireless technology and the advent of machine learning, new tools are being developed that can unlock energy efficiency and IEQ potential in any building regardless of its size, age, or geographic location.

Matt Schaubroeck is an entrepreneur working in the clean technology and artificial intelligence sectors. His startup company, ioAirFlow, is helping improve the energy efficiency of commercial buildings.

The Value of Vertical Real Estate (VRE)

Buildings are missing out on new revenue streams and additional property value from an asset they already own, vertical real estate. The world is rapidly shifting to renewable-first design and SolarSkyrise is proving the technology and data for architects, engineers, and owners to make more resilient and valuable assets.

SolarSkyrise is a data analytics company that provides architects, engineers, and real estate owners with the ability to generate new revenue streams from all exterior surfaces of buildings. Our technology analyzes both planned and existing buildings, and provides the business case for using architectural and traditional solar technologies on all surfaces.

Scott Russell is the Co-Founder and CEO of SolarSkyrise. He is a serial entrepreneur, and has led the creation and scale-up of startups across a number of sectors. Over his career in the energy sector, Scott led the creation, market entry and management of new companies, strategic initiatives, and regional operations in over 20 countries worldwide. He is a Chartered Professional Accountant and holds a degree in finance from the University of Manitoba.

Software as a Service: The future of energy modeling

Utilizing 'ECO Matrix', the energy modeling Software as a Service (SaaS) application he developed, Anup works closely with the mechanical designers of SMS as well as architects and builders to fine-tune design that meets energy and carbon objectives without stifling design creativity or inflating construction budgets. 

Anup Rathi is a Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP) with over a decade of experience in sustainable development, building energy efficiency and green buildings and has been with SMS Engineering as a Building Energy Simulation Specialist for four years.
