CERAWeek by IHS Markit is the world’s premier energy event with comprehensive insight into the global and regional energy future. This marks the fourth year that Mr. Diehl has been invited to speak at the distinguished conference. He will be speaking during the Agora session entitled Automating the Built Environment: Maximizing efficiency, costs & emissions which takes place on March 9th at 10:30 CST. The session is moderated by Vijay Vaitheeswaran, Global Energy and Climate Innovation Editor at The Economist.
Major corporations, life science companies and institutions are committing to aggressive decarbonization in the coming years. Ventilation optimization, particularly in labs and research spaces have a significant impact on true carbon footprint reduction. In his CERAWeek presentation, Diehl will share results of decarbonization efforts which including that every dollar invested in ventilation optimization generates a 5 times return on future decarbonization efforts. He’ll also explain why the market is now tackling the converging IAQ and decarbonization challenges with an ‘efficiency first’ mindset.
“The facts are clear on climate change, and the time is now: buildings account for a huge amount of annual greenhouse gas emissions, and companies are setting aggressive zero carbon targets and striving for optimal indoor air quality,” said Diehl. “The Aircuity platform’s ability to address the convergence of IAQ and Decarbonization has never been more important.”
