Like any other commitment of capital, these investments must make business sense. Traditional methods for simply valuing energy cost reductions do not fully capture the value stream from smart buildings. This session will bring together on-the-ground expertise from building owner/managers, product and service providers, and cybersecurity specialists to discuss how value from employee productivity, recruitment and retention, cybersecurity, and operational cost reductions drive an improved return on investment analysis of smart building strategies. The “chain of custody” for making critical investment decisions is complicated. Learn more about who must be convinced in this complex decision tree for smart investments.
