BusinessWeek.com reports on how IBM is using its Smarter Building technology to help clients reduce their carbon footprint and run more efficiently, including:   

  • Johnson Controls Inc. –  analyzing energy use and building performance for its customers
  • Ricoh Co. –  developing a device and printing management system to monitor print-related costs
  • Tennessee Valley Authority —  managing and maintaining information technology and physical assets across its power facilities, including nuclear and wind

And then there’s the Venetian Resort in the video above.

Along the way, this “smart” building market, where a variety of systems are embedded with efficiency intelligence, will double to $6 billion by 2015 from this year.

At the Pulse2010 conference former Vice President Al Gore compared the need for better data about environmental conditions to the mortgage credit crisis, as reported in Computerworld.  “When there are important factors that are systemically ignored, that can set us up for bad decisions,” said Gore.

“Even if you don’t buy into the evidence of the climate crisis,” Gore said, the development of green technologies, investment in wind, solar and smart grids, offers “a chance to boost our economy.”
