Weekly News Roundup Feb. 17-21, 2014

It’s the end of another beautiful week and we’re back with all the building automation news that went down in the last handful of days.

At the end of the year, Opower broke down some key energy numbers and forecasted a not-entirely-encouraging future. Inspired by that, we started investigating one small piece of the energy puzzle – lighting. In our first in a series of blog posts, we looked closer at the issues raised in the Opower article. Then, we made the case for improvements. Stay tuned for more lighting-controls insights as we continue the series next week.

Onto industry news:

Public schools continue focusing on energy management, this time in Wisconsin with Johnson Controls.

Opower made improvements on Honeywell’s smart thermostat. They’ve been busy.

Building Operations Management magazine is hosting a free webinar on optimizing BAS systems on Feb. 27. Register here.

There’s a rousing discussion of cyber security and the building automation industry happening in the LinkedIn Automation group. Read and join the discussion here.
