Tell me your story on how you designed an energy-efficient building engineering system.
According to a recent survey we concluded of engineers like yourself, energy efficiency ranks at the top of challenges you face in engineering design. That’s not surprising—building owners want to squeeze every dollar out of their mechanical or electrical system, so they’re turning to engineers like you.
Here’s the million dollar question: What’s the best way to design energy-efficient building engineering systems? Sure, there are lots of products out there that offer savings in power usage, or more efficient water usage, or efficient lighting design, or better IAQ. But how do you design an entire energy-efficient building, and replicate that in various types of buildings?
I’d like to hear the stories or case studies of how you created the most energy-efficient design for a new building, or how you retrofitted an existing building to be efficient. Send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please don’t include information about the specific products you used, or that you achieved a certain U.S. Green Building Council LEED status. I want to hear how you overcame a challenge, what you’re proud of, and cutting-edge system design.
Tell me about your insights into the building occupants’ energy consumption. Let me know what tools or tricks you used to keep track of the building’s energy efficiency. And finally, if you have your crystal ball handy, let me know where you think this trend is going.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
