How can building data analytics reduce Demand?

Buildings are responsible for 40% of global energy consumption. Watch the recording of CIMs lunch and learn session to hear from our panel of experts about reducing this energy consumption and building a better future across large buildings and facilities. Our panel will discuss best practices to cost effectively achieve your CO2 reduction targets, lower energy spend and leverage building data analytics to develop a roadmap. Register today to learn more about industry best practices and expect to hear about:

Learn more about: 

  • Are buildings ready for an energy-efficient future?
  • What type of initiatives should buildings be implementing to deliver Energy Savings & CO2 reductions?
  • What are the major challenges including; energy crisis, OPEX, uptime, safety, alarm fatigue to tackling sustainability and how can site leadership overcome them?
  • Key considerations or best practices used when developing CO2 reductions strategies
  • The power of data and bridging the gap between identified and realised savings

Panel Chair

Dave Walsh

David was inspired to create CIM because of the ’black hole’ he observed in the way data was being used within buildings. Companies were data-rich but information poor, and finding or fixing the root cause of wastage was a major challenge. Leveraging his combined experience in computer science, energy efficiency and the property industry, David built an innovative solution to prove the idea that making better use of existing data could improve building performance. Prior to moving to Australia, David worked in Ireland and Germany as a systems engineer Fortune 500 SAP and Intel, and as a director of technical services for a design, building and property company. He has a bachelor of computer science from Griffith College in Dublin.
