This Emerging Technologies Brown Bag will cover TWO new technologies:

Smart Power Strips (Presenter: Mike Sheppy)

As efficiency gains are made in building lighting and HVAC systems, plug loads become a greater percentage of building energy use and must be addressed to meet energy goals. HVAC and lighting systems are targeted because they are typically the highest energy end uses, but plug load reduction and control should be considered as part of a comprehensive approach to energy reduction. In a minimally code compliant office building, plug loads typically account for 25% of the total electrical load. In an ultra-efficient office building, plug loads are typically one of the last end uses to be considered for energy conservation and, as a result, can account for more than 50% of the total electrical load (Lobato et. al, 2011). Commercially available advanced power strips (APS) can be used to mitigate wasted energy from most plug loads and, in many cases, can have a return-on-investment of approximately two years or less.

The Dynamic Control of Solar Energy (Presenter: Lee Seaman)

Electrochromic Glass is a low voltage electronically tintable glass that can be tinted or cleared to optimize daylight and improve the human experience in buildings. Electrochromic Glass controls the sunlight and heat that enter a building, significantly reducing energy consumption while improving people’s comfort and wellbeing.Electrochromic Glass can reduce a building’s cooling load by 20% and HVAC requirements up to 30%. This unique glazing product is designed for architects, building owners,general contractors and glazing contractors who want an energy-efficient glazing solution that controls the sun without blocking the view and connection to the outdoors. It improves building energy performance,enhances the human experience in buildings and enables more sustainable building design and construction.This presentation provides an introduction to Electrochromic glazing,presents case studies of numerous installations across the U.S., introduces the benefits of dynamic glazing, and provides insight as to how the technology works, how it is controlled and available product features.


Lee Seaman, LEED GA | Bowman Construction Supply  | Architectural Division Manager

Lee Seaman has worked at Bowman Construction Supply since 1996 and has been the Architectural Division Sales manager since 2006. As a manufactures representative firm Bowman works closely with architects and engineers during the design phases of the project and then they are actively involved with contractors during the installation process to ensure the materials are utilized correctly. Many of the products represented are focused on daylighting and solar heat gain mitigation.
