New York Data Science presents The Challenges Faced in the Power & Building Industries

December 5, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Smith Engineering engineers performance improvement solutions for Central Energy Plants. The central energy plant is typically the largest consumer of energy within a facility, consuming as much as 50% of a facility’s power. Optimizing the central plant performance provides the opportunity for significant energy savings, reducing environmental impact, and achieving a faster payback on plant retrofits.

The team at Smith Engineering specializes in delivering data-driven solutions for central plant optimization. Join us for a lively discussion on what new challenges this industry is facing and how the team leverages data science and machine learning to make market predictions.
