The word Smart is likely now the most used sales pitch for anything relating to a building. We are told nearly everything we buy has a smart aspect, whether this is a new TV, a heating system, a washing machine or a car. So what actually is smart?

For many years, we as Energy Management professionals have been trying to implement control over energy consuming equipment within our building portfolios. From the installation of a BMS to lighting control systems, we have reduced the unrequired energy consumption of our buildings as low as has been possible. So how is Smart more than control and what do we get from implementing the smart campus concept into both new and existing buildings?

This session will investigate the concept of a Smart building and Smart campus and will highlight what we expect from a smart campus/smart building. The session will explore the balance between what we want, what we ask for and what we can achieve.
