Energy Management E-news


Dear readers:

Last week I was invited to Illinois to celebrate the opening of Panduit's new world headquarters, a state-of-the-art facility designed with LEED specifications in mind. Serving as a living case study of Panduit's Unified Physical Infrastructure (UPI)-based solutions, the building is smarter, more integrated and—most important—more efficient in regards to energy and water conservation. After listening to many speeches, many of them concerning sustainable development, I couldn't help but feel optimistic about the future. You can read more about the event below.

This e-newsletter also includes new products, news items, and columns by Ken Sinclair and David Kroeker, the environmental supervisor from CompX Waterloo's award-winning facility. In addition, if you have any story ideas—or perhaps you are interested in writing a column—please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing your input.
