INVESTING in INNOVATION for SMART GROWTH

2015-18 Speaker Series


LOW ENERGY BUILDINGS


The 2015-18 Speaker Series in association with SMART Community Exchange (SCE) and Eco Commerce Exchange (ECE) is now in production. From live events and select local venues, to an on-line presence that enables the worlds of social media and live performance to seamlessly meet, the ECE experience is about collaborative learning, discovering new business opportunities and unique contacts.The ECE is always open and just waiting to be discovered. 


CALL FOR SPEAKERS


Speakers


The Speakers have at least one thing in common - they share insight, provoke thought and stimulate conversation about compelling and timely issues, stories and events. By offering entertaining educational opportunities that are unique and unavailable elsewhere, ECE continues to attract expert Speakers from around the world. 


The first Speaker Series in 2013 featured a number of highly regarded experts in the field of Eco Commerce. The lecture program has since expanded to include internationally renowned business executives, investors, entrepreneurs, policy makers, philanthropists, scientists, authors, media experts and other luminaries.


The Eco Commerce Exchange (ECE) has become a well-established and highly regarded highlight of the global commerce, and an integral part of the international business community.

International Audience


The ECE works closely with organizations around the planet to identify Speakers who have particular appeal for ECE's fast growing international audience of over 2 million business executives, values-based investors and donors, entrepreneurs, and policy leaders. 


Public Service 


The Speaker Series also addresses an important role of ECE's global mission - public service in the communities - by dedicating speakers to address education and other societal issues and concerns.


All production expenses for the Speaker Series are covered by sponsorships. NO state funds, research foundation funds, donations or general gifts are used to fund or support the Speakers or programs.


Public Private Partnerships (PPP)


We help business executives, investors, and philanthropists seeking potential partnerships to find projects and engage investors with enterprises, organizations and communities around partner projects by region. 


Collaborative Online Learning 


This speaker series is about bringing best practices to market. ECE brings together individuals and organizations in a way that does not require a large investment of funds and time. By pooling our contacts and resources, we can find new opportunities to bring innovations to market in a quick and efficient manner. Together, we can overcome market penetration challenges and remove barriers accelerating access to markets, funding and government approval process.


This Speaker Series will discuss the following: 

Low Energy Buildings


Buildings typically consume 30–40 percent of all primary energy used. Over 80 percent of the environmentally harmful emissions from buildings are due to energy consumption during the times when the buildings are in use. 


Our concept of ‘simplification’ means decreasing the number of components and materials, simplifying the design of necessary components and using the same component or system for different functions and optimizing the whole building, not the sub-units. Not only does simplification lead to investment savings but it also provides a more reliable system.


We will utilize our unique portfolio of technologies in our ‘Low Energy Building’ projecta. These technologies include geothermal equipment and heating/cooling air pumps for the ground source and drilling installation applications; Intelligent energy storage battery system developed for PV solar and wind power installations into national or regional electric distribution grids; networked power management; solar panels and thin films; solar heat collectors; electric car stations and  battery swappings; vehicle to grid battery storage; onsite energy generation and storage; building information management; building automation systems; real-time demand management.


These projects will result in environmentally friendly and cost-effective building that can reduce energy consumption, and also lead to improved indoor climate and air quality. Not only does simplification lead to investment savings but it also provides a more reliable system.


Other principles include controlled ventilation and efficient heat recovery, improved thermal insulation and using structures as heat storage units.


Based on our diverse competence in economically efficient and environmentally friendly construction, together we enable the construction. We aim to combine several technologies for entire new and advanced solutions in terms of sustainable development.  


The concept and some features of the ‘will include:

  • Distributed energy production based on renewable sources solar, wind and biomass;
  • Low-energy buildings, consumption less than 50% of that of conventional buildings;
  • Waste recycling, minimizing waste amount and effective collection system; 
  • Water recycling, as closed as possible; 
  • Electric vehicle charging and battery swapping, and biofuel station.   


Low Energy Building Hub


CEC will develop a value network of partners that will enable the opening up new markets for large scale construction projects in the Americas, Europe and the emerging markets. To respond to this challenge, CEC has appointed a working group in Atlanta, Georgia, to investigate possibilities worldwide, to enhance the export of our ‘Low Energy Building’ know-how into other markets.

 

As a result, new ‘Low Energy Building’ construction projects, ventures with financiers as well as regional corporate development organizations will be launched.  


The goal of these ventures is to build an operational model with the help of the companies, financiers, and public operators involved. 

 

We have conducted a preliminary market investigation about the nature and quantity of demand for ‘Low Energy Buildings’. Based on this investigation an operational model fitting for ‘Low Energy Building’ construction projects for emerging markets has been drafted with the help of our experts. This operational model will be tested in negotiations with local governmental officials, research organizations and representatives of companies.


USA: The Better Buildings Initiative & Jobs


The Better Buildings Initiative proposes to make American businesses more energy efficient through a series of new initiatives including newly designed tax incentives for building efficiency, better financing opportunities for commercial retrofits, a “Race to Green” for state and municipal governments that streamline regulations and attract private investment for retrofit projects, a “Better Buildings Challenge” to CEOs and University Presidents, and, finally, new training for commercial building technology workers.


An analysis released in June 2011 by the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, showed that more than 114,000 new jobs, many of which would come from the hard-hit construction industry, would be created through the Better Buildings Initiative.


Three energy efficiency strategies for buildings include:  high efficiency windows and glass, smart grid, and lighting. If Home Star legislation is also passed, the firms involved in residential re-insulation and electric heat pump hot water heaters will also benefit.
