Accelerating the adoption and commercialization of smart buildings technologies and practices through education and demonstration.
The Smart Buildings Center Education Program (SBCEP) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that believes the smarter use of technology and practices in the built environment, particularly as they relate to building operations and management, will enable a cleaner, healthier and more productive future. SBCEP seeks to establish thought leadership for smart technologies and practices within the built environment, and pursues its objective through the following pillars of activity: delivering training programs to educate the building workforce of the future; enabling industry leading demonstration projects; and connecting the industry through hosting and participating in smart buildings events.
The Smart Buildings Center (SBC) is a multi-functional energy efficiency headquarters on the first floor of the Pacific Tower in Seattle, Washington.
