Michigan’s Great Southwest Sustainable Business Forum will meet on Wednesday, March 21 for a luncheon and networking program on intelligent buildings and energy efficiency at Whirlpool Global Headquarters. Networking and lunch begin at 11:30 am, with the program from 12:10 am to 1:30 pm.

Registration is closed.  Walk-ins are accepted.


Whirlpool / JLL Director of Operations Dave Clayton and Building Management System Specialist Keith Kiser will discuss how Whirlpool has utilized integrated technology and dashboards to improve the performance of its properties locally and globally.

The program will introduce attendees to the potential of intelligent building technology, detail how it can be used in different building types (office, manufacturing, medical) and provide a demonstration of Whirlpool’s 26-property local intelligent building infrastructure.

The program will also feature a presentation from Jason Whitman, Energy Efficiency and Consumer Program Coordinator for Indiana Michigan Power, who will introduce I&M’s current rebate and incentive programs for energy efficiency improvements.

Immediately prior to the forum meeting is a free energy efficiency workshop for municipalities, universities, schools and healthcare organizations and professionals, presented in partnership with the Michigan Community Energy Partnership.
