Moderator: Bill Ulfelder(The Nature Conservancy. Speakers: Jon Christensen (Stanford University), Rob McDonald (The Nature Conservancy), Phil Stevens (Urban Creeks Council), Marielle Anzelone (NYC Wildflower Week) and Susannah Drake (dlandstudio llc)
There's a new energy across the United States about recapturing nature in cities, but can these efforts rebuild biodiversity? Leading scientists, authors, and urban conservationists discuss the science behind and promise for today’s urban conservation efforts. The third installment of our four-part series Discourses on Nature and Society.
Edited by Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
This Annals issue explores how large data sets can be harnessed to improve energy management in the built environment.
Keynote Speaker: Didier Stevens (Toyota Motor Europe)
Data about energy consumption in buildings can revolutionize energy use and, if analyzed effectively, has the potential to transform buildings' market value. This eBriefing examines 'big data' in the real estate industry and focuses on new systems for energy management.
Moderator: Bill Ulfelder (The Nature Conservancy)
Speakers: Marielle Anzelone (NYC Wildflower Week), Jon Christensen (Stanford University), Susannah Drake (dlandstudio pllc), Rob McDonald (The Nature Conservancy), and Phil Stevens (Urban Creeks Council)
Across the United States, people are newly inspired to recapture nature in cities, but can these efforts rebuild biodiversity? In this eBriefing, leading scientists, authors, and urban conservationists discuss the science behind and the promise of today's urban conservation efforts.
Speakers: Chris Garvin (Terrapin Bright Green), Cliff Majersik (Institute for Market Transformation), and Chris Pyke (U.S. Green Building Council)
There is an increasing focus on policy, standards, and interoperability of building data. Without the proper tools, the virtual tsunami of building data can overwhelm potential users. This eBriefing focuses on refining the data stream to drive green building innovation.
