CxEnergy 2017, held April 24-27 in Orlando, Fla., saw record attendance of nearly 550 building-commissioning, energy-management, and test-and-balance professionals and the most sponsors and exhibitors in CxEnergy history.
Participants viewed the latest technologies, attended a wide array of educational sessions and workshops, and enjoyed numerous networking opportunities.
The 32-session technical program covered topics such as commissioning in health-care, government, and commercial settings; existing-building commissioning; data centers; controls and automation; utility incentive programs; building envelope; chilled-water systems; cybersecurity; LED lighting; data analytics; the Internet of Things; testing and balancing; finance; and updates on ANSI and ASHRAE standards.

With 55 sponsors and exhibitors, CxEnergy’s expo hall showcased a wide variety of products and services. Offerings ranged from software, controls, instruments, and metering devices to consultative services in engineering and building management.
