Automation and Emissions Reduction in Multi-Residential Buildings

ASHRAE Toronto invites you to join us for a webinar about developing your technical skills and becoming the best version of yourself.

Event Summary

Multi-family buildings are occupied 24/7 which means traditional approaches to optimization have hit a ceiling. Advancing technology (cloud computing, IOT, AI etc.) are enabling deeper optimization in environments that have a heightened sensitivity to changes in comfort.

Join us for an educational event about how new technology improves comfort, accelerates measurement & verification (M&V) and overall leads to deeper optimization in Multi-Family buildings
