National Institute of Building Sciences to Participate in CxEnergy 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 29, 2018) – (RealEstateRama) — Don’t miss the upcoming CxEnergy 2018 Conference & Expo, to be held April 23-26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fifth annual CxEnergy provides topical, in-depth educational presentations for commissioning; testing, adjusting and balancing (TAB); and energy management professionals. The National Institute of Building Sciences is a supporting organization of the event.


On Thursday, April 26, Ryan Colker, J.D., Vice President at the Institute, will deliver the technical presentation, “Driving to Outcomes: How Evolving Energy Performance Policies Impact the Building Process.” This session will examine what current and proposed outcome-based code provisions look like (including recent guidance that the Institute issued for cities wishing to implement such an approach) and how commissioning providers and others focused on energy performance can assist building owners in achieving outcome-based goals.

CxEnergy presentations include case studies and topics in building envelope/enclosure commissioning, technology and innovation, energy management, commissioning specialty systems, policy and financial issues, lighting, water management, data centers, microgrids, energy storage and more. Attendees can earn American Institute of Architects (AIA) and other industry certification continuing education credits. View the Preliminary Technical Program.

The Expo Hall showcases a wide variety of products, including controls, software, instruments, metering devices and services targeted specifically to commissioning, energy management, engineering and testing firms. See the list of sponsors and exhibitors.

The National Institute of Building Sciences was authorized by the U.S. Congress in the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383. In establishing the Institute, Congress recognized the need for an organization that could serve as an interface between government and the private sector. The Institute's public interest mission is to serve the Nation by supporting advances in building science and technology to improve the built environment.

Through the Institute, Congress established a public/private partnership to enable findings on technical, building-related matters to be used effectively to improve government, commerce and industry.
