Michael Berning, Chief Innovation Officer at HEAPY, is presenting at the AEE 2020 conference in Cincinnati, Ohio this Spring! The event brings together Energy Professionals from commercial, industrial, institutional and governmental sectors. Attendees will learn how energy efficiency can improve your organization’s bottom line, create jobs and meet almost 40% of carbon reductions! Michael will be performing a collaborative duo with the Director of Sustainability/Assistant Professor at Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf/Ball State University, Daniel Overbey. As Michael is responsible for the “what’s next” aspect of enhancing client service experience and the production of colleague advancement opportunities, he will present his expertise with Daniel on how to introduce better design to the design process.
Both leaders will discuss benchmarking, ASHRAE 209 and the advantage an integrative process offers to project teams as well as the positive impact the outcomes will have on the most important building use, the people within. Case study analysis of actual versus predicted building performance will support the conclusions of this presentation.
