On April 17, 2018, Edward McGraw, Chief Executive Officer, and Calvin Ahn, Associate Principal/Senior Project Manager, will be presenting "Alexa Optimize Performance: The Future of Voice Interactive Building Dashboards" at the Getting to Zero National Forum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

This will be the fourth gathering of global experts in zero energy buildings who are driving the movement for the future of the built environment. Conference participants will share perspectives on the growth of Zero Energy, learn about best practices for successful projects and collaborate on opportunities for Zero Energy to transform the built environment.

Ed and Calvin's presentation will focus on the design of the Zero Energy ready MacArthur Elementary School in Binghamton, New York. While designing the Net Zero ready MacArthur Elementary School, the design team decided to stretch the role of the “building dashboard”. The client and team designed a voice responsive interactive persona named “Arthur”. Arthur asks and answers age appropriate subject and behavior questions as well as influences understanding and behavior around weather and energy use.
