Thank you for joining us at the demonstration for our first-ever Connected Buildings Challenge. The event kicked off with a presentation by PNNL's Nora Wang, followed by project pitches from our five competing teams. Select their team name below to see their project poster.

After the pitches, we heard how PNNL, Microsoft Azure, and Amazon Web Services are leveraging the Internet of Things to increase energy efficiency. We ended the day talking about the path-forward for connected buildings, and how we can leverage our partnerships going forward to continue to accelerate this market.
