Our Broadest Portfolio Yet

Derek Publicover, GM of Retail, took the stage in front of a packed house to discuss how Current’s intelligent environments could improve a multitude of business metrics from energy efficiency to employee productivity. Derek explained why so much energy is wasted in most commercial buildings today, and he showed attendees how LEDs and smart controls are an energy-saving first step toward creating a truly intelligent environment. It’s opening a new world of digital productivity applications that are providing new insights and analytical capabilities.
