CIBS Vision and Mission
CIBS has a mission to serve our membership by providing tangible outcomes and manpower
that service its vision. To accomplish this, we will bring together researchers and stakeholders from across the spectrum (from component to building owner/operators) to address the lack of integration in
a rigorous way that is governed by a common mission. The center will develop, and
codify in a common framework, the physical/cyber-physical models and datasets which
are required to assess and suggest appropriate integration of equipment, systems,
with the structures and surrounding environment.
Our stakeholders have helped us arrive at a list of 5 research thrusts that will be the focus of the center over its first years. We commit to deliver
relevant research outcomes, manpower, and an exciting environment for creativity and
collaboration between our stakeholders and researchers with a focus on these research
CIBS Vision: A built environment that is holistically connected from component to grid-levels that
maximizes energy utilization without sacrifice to occupant comfort or equipment performance.
CIBS Mission:Serve our membership by providing tangible outcomes and manpower to improve the integration
of components, systems, and the built environment through an exploration of the fundamental
mechanisms of interaction from component to building scales.
