FSCI Buildings Workshop in Mexico City.
Implementing best practices in operations can significantly improve building efficiency. Today’s technologies create unprecedented energy data for analysis and action. The performance of building systems, operational changes and maintenance efforts can be tracked over time. These technology tools will be transformative if we continue to evolve our energy management practices, review the data, build our plans and act on new information. The goal? Bringing people and technology together to improve building performance.
The Building Efficiency Accelerator hosted a workshop in Eskişehir for 95 experts in the field to increase building knowledge and capacity.
