Cooling An Overheated Grid: How Machine Learning is Turning our Buildings into Power Sources
Wednesday, Oct 4, 2023
In recent years, we have seen an increase in power outages resulting in brownouts, blackouts and deadly wildfires, which will only increase if we don’t change how we use our energy resources. Manik will discuss the opportunity businesses have to leverage ML paired with sensors & smart plugs to use cooling – refrigeration and air conditioning – dynamically to reduce energy consumption, carbon emissions and operating costs. Manik will share how companies like 7/11, McDonald’s, Marriott Hotels & Vail Resorts are using this technology to shift energy usage to cleaner times of day, relieving grid stress while reducing energy costs without affecting the quality of food and guest experience.
