The Center for Sustainably Integrated Buildings and Sites (SIBS) is a collaboration between leading universities, companies, and government agencies focused on minimizing the impact of the built environment on the natural environment.

Led by a team at UNC Charlotte and supported both by the National Science Foundation and partners such as Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Ingersoll Rand, the City of Charlotte, and Mecklenburg County, SIBS focuses upon applied research problems and education intended to create better performing buildings.

This presentation will describe several elements of our work:

  • Research case studies: Post-occupancy evaluation of a Zero Net Energy retail facility; Example technology evaluations in actual buildings
  • Building Retuning Training (BRT) for operators: Educational offerings focused on teaching operators how to utilize their automation system and other data-gathering tools to optimize energy performance

Presented by: Dr. Robert Cox, Ph.D. | Associate Professor | UNC Charlotte
