Nick Gayeski, CEO of KGS Buildings will be speaking at the prestigious Rosenfeld Symposium 2019 hosted by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The event is being held on April 23rd at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, California.
This is a very special event for a number of reasons. It is named in honor of Art Rosenfeld, whose impact on the world of energy efficiency was significant through his leadership on appliance efficiency standards. The main event is a panel entitled "Analytics and Connected Technologies in Buildings," moderated by the excellent Jessica Granderson of LBNL. Sharing the stage will be Charlotte Mathews, Director of Sustainability for Sidewalk Labs, and Prabal Dutta, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UC-Berkeley. At KGS, we believe that over 100,000 buildings will be "connected" over the next 10 years, fundamentally changing how we manage our built environment. Conversations like these with important thought leaders pushing the industry forward are always thought provoking and also a lot of fun :).
Buildings are the largest energy consuming sector in the US and account for over 70% of total electricity use. The Rosenfeld Symposium explores transformative technologies and systems to ensure that the buildings and the electric grid are integrated to provide next generation clean, reliable and economic energy systems.
The Symposium also aims to encourage and inspire the next generation of researchers in this field with engaging expert talks, panel session discussions and lightning-round presentations by early career researchers.
