Lucid, an Oakland-based company that connects people to buildings through energy dashboards and analytics, hosted its inaugural Connected Buildings Summit at Stanford in May. Stanford partnered closely with Lucid to release energy and water dashboards for over 100 Stanford buildings through the Sustainable Stanford portal in October 2014. Lucid’s dashboards have helped empower Stanford community members to better understand their energy consumption and learn how to reduce it through real-time data.

Lucid’s Connected Buildings Summit was a collaborative forum uniting industry leaders and customers shaping the future of intelligent buildings. It featured sessions with leading names in the industry, including a presentation by Fahmida Ahmed, Director of the Office of Sustainability at Stanford, on Stanford’s vision for energy and sustainability on campus. Held at the Knight Management Center, the conference also featured a tour of the complex, as well as a tour of the Yang and Yamazaki Environment & Energy Building, both of which are certified as LEED Platinum.
