Rich Lechner Vice President, Energy & Environment, IBM "Sustainability on a Smarter Planet" Abstract The world is becoming increasingly instrumented, interconnected, and intelligent - in a word, 'smarter'. Organizations now have the ability to see the exact condition of practically everything in near real-time and can leverage this information to achieve financial, environmental, social, and operational benefits. This session will use case studies to provide a broad overview of how technology can be leveraged to optimize all aspects of an organization's infrastructure and operations for energy, carbon, water, and waste. It will also discuss a number of challenges and opportunities ranging from behavioral change to public policy to financing. (#22732)
