Microsoft Brings Smart Buildings to Seattle

Tue, 2013-07-16 06:14 -- Liz Enbysk







Smart Cities Council Lead Partner Microsoft has been working with Seattle’s Office of Economic Development over the last two years to develop an approach to driving energy efficiency at city scale. The result is a smart buildings pilot for downtown Seattle inspired by the smart buildings pilot that was implemented on Microsoft’s Redmond campus.

That pilot used Big Data to provide forecasted energy savings of 10 percent per year and the Seattle pilot is expected to surpass that with energy and maintenance savings between 10 and 25 percent. City leaders interested in how they can realize similar savings will want to read this case study to see how Seattle is going about it.
