Topics will include:

- Adapting Energy Master Plans and Business Models to account for the impact of COVID-19: lessons learned

- Successful strategies for cost justifying and funding efficiency, resiliency and sustainability projects for your built environment including PACE, ESPCs, PPA, Energy- as-a- Service, public-private partnerships

- Successful operational strategies for the Integration of DERs: Best business practices for using solar and energy storage (batteries) to eliminate monthly peak demand charges throughout the year in addition to providing resilience during outages.

- Cyber Resiliency: Current threat landscape for facility and campus energy; how to build in cyber resilience, and what level of resilience to expect from your Control Systems, Energy Information Systems (EIS) and Building Automation Systems (BAS).

- Advanced Energy Management Systems and Data Analytics: Fueled by digitization and new technologies, facility and energy management systems have the ability to providedata driven, real time decision making tools to facility energy managers and engineers. Knowing what data sets to utilize and how to extract meaningful outcomes canunpack energy savings, improve resiliency and help transform facilities and campuses into smarter, automated systems.

- Distributed Energy Resources: Integrating battery storage, microgrids, PV, CHP, EV charging and wind into your energy portfolio through onsite generation or various PPA.

- Monitoring-Based Commissioning (MBCx): How far can the data take us? Using data analytics to automate and enhance the commissioning process.

- Fault Detection and Diagnostics: Using an intelligent predictive maintenance tool for detecting and predicting equipment failures including Automated Fault Detection and Diagnostics (AFDD).

- Future of Intelligent Facilities, Campuses and the National Energy Infrastructure: Near future state for supporting IoT; from sensors, management systems and standards to help you move forward. The future of Gird-Interactive Buildings and what energy managers need to prepare for.
