13 March 2015 Milan, Italy – CASCADE & S4ECoB Joint Workshop “Energy Efficiency towards 2020: Building Management Systems for Airports and Shopping Centres"
S4ECoB consortium invited interested stakeholders to participate in the workshop “Energy Efficiency towards 2020: Building Management Systems for Airports and Shopping Centres". It was organized by the two EU funded research projects Sound for Energy Control of Buildings (S4ECoB) and ICT for Energy Efficient Airports (CASCADE) at Malpensa airport in Italy. In the morning session, the two ICT solutions for airports were the main focus; in the afternoon session, a round table discussion helped to interchange ideas and solutions. Airport and shopping center executives, energy managers, as well as all interested stakeholders in advanced ICT solutions for airports and shopping centers were invited to join the workshop.
