Full Summary: A panel discussion sponsored by the Georgia Tech Clean Energy Speaker Series. 

The axiom ‘If You Can’t Measure It, You Can’t Manage It’ is destined to become increasingly relevant as organizations and individuals want to know more about the costs, attributes and effects of the energy they consume. Numerous reference points for the intersection of energy and IT industries exist and are increasing. Examples include: Nest learning thermostats, ‘smart’ meters on buildings, near real-time energy monitoring, and embedded sensors and networked devices for command, control and monitoring.

Underneath these emerging applications basic questions exist about value and impact of the data and information. Does actionable information change corporate decision-making or individual behavior? How? What ROI’s are achievable?

Plan to join this timely discussion on the increasingly important role of information and energy. Speakers include:

  • Peter C. Evans, Vice President, Center for Global Enterprise
  • Sameer Vittal, Manager – Advanced Analytics, Power Generation Services, GE Power & Water
  • John Bracey, President, Skye Energy
