Since 2004, the Buildy Awards have been presented to leaders, visionaries and implementers of smart devices and smart systems in the context of commercial buildings, residential, energy management and other applications.
The 2011 Buildy Awards will acknowledge leaders in the energy-consuming segments that define the scope of where energy is consumed and where Smart Grid, smart buildings, smart homes, smart devices and smart services will play a vital role. The four energy consumption segments explored at ConnectivityWeek 2011 are BuilConn, HomeConn, IndConn and InfraConn.
This award will be presented to a company, organization, or individual that has applied the principles of smart building connectivity via innovative technologies, systems, or applications. The nominee should display strength in the application of information and communication technology (ICT) within the building’s automation and energy-management systems. Special consideration will be given to those projects and technologies that include building-to-grid (B2G) principles. Technologies and projects should yield clear value propositions and returns on investment for the end user.
