King County, WA launches Smart Building Energy Tracking System

We have written before about the innovative work we have been doing with smart buildings with our post on How Microsoft Quietly Built the City of the Future.

Yesterday we held a “press event” at our Operations Center in Redmond with King County (13th largest County in the US) announcing a “Smart building” pilot with our partner Iconics (on Azure) with the objective of reducing their energy cost and carbon footprint. You can check out the details on our CityNext blog (here), a video from King5 News (here) or King County’s press release (here). May the Cloud be with You! – Jon C. Arnold
