Intelligence is Power

Innovating a More Efficient World

In this series presented by Emerson Climate Technologies, we explore the environmental and financial benefits of energy efficiency with a special focus on smart meters and smart climate control. The series will seek to define what makes a climate technology “smart” and showcase some of the latest technologies for reducing the energy load of buildings.

The series will address many facets of energy efficiency, including the different types of technology available for residential and commercial use, employee wellness and climate control, and waste heat reclamation technologies. We will also explore sector-specific technologies for sectors from data centers to grocery stores and many industries in between.
