Buildings consume lots of energy. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the residential and commercial sectors accounted for about 40% of total U.S. energy consumption. As North Texas continues to grow, more and more people will need places to live, work, play, shop, and eat. Buildings, both new and existing, need to perform at a high level to provide healthy environments, energy efficiency, equity, and resiliency.
Join some of the brightest minds in the industry as we discuss how save money and energy through efficiency.

Register for the Smart Cities event
Join EarthX and North Lake College for an evening to explore the idea, 'what makes a 'smart city' smart?' Learn how new technologies and open access to data is transforming our communities, enhancing quality of life, and sustaining our resources for future generations. Smart Cities embrace the Internet of Things (IoT), and utilize communication technologies and strategies across all community needs and daily living. According to
Business Insider, cities will need to become more efficient with collection and analysis of data as more and more people move to cities putting pressure on infrastructure, environmental, economic and social resources. At this event, you will hear from expert speakers from business and government about smart initiatives in our region like 5-G, autonomous vehicles, open data, building sensors, biodiversity meters, and more.
