Welcome to the fourth of the 2016 USGBC Northeast Florida Region's Innovation Forums!
This program will focus on some of the technology trends associated with smart and sustainable cities and buildings and how they interact together, by utilizing two case studies. The first case study is the Fujisawa Smart Sustainable town, which is a 1,000-home community in Japan. The second case study will be Pena Station NEXT, a 400-acre mixed-use development that serves as a living smart / sustainable lab for the city of Denver.
