Microsoft, Accenture Partner for Smart Buildings Project in Seattle; Bill Mitchel Comments

BuildingMicrosoft and Accenture are teaming up in an effort to help the city of Seattle increase energy efficiency across 2 million square feet of commercial property, Greenbiz reports.

Heather Clancy writes that Microsoft is working with the Seattle City Light and Seattle 2030 District for the program.

Buildings that will undergo Microsoft’s smart building transformation are the Seattle Municipal Tower, the Sheraton Hotel, the University of Washington School of Medicine’s research facility and a Boeing facility.

Bill Mitchel, senior director in Microsoft’s worldwide public sector division senior director, wrote in a blog post that the project is information technology-based and only requires the building owner to provide the companies access to data in their systems.

Accenture’s smart building and energy solutions┬áteam will make recommendations on applications and technologies to use, according to Clancy’s report.

Mitchel added that as Microsoft smart buildings, the commercial properties involved in the program will use the Windows Azure cloud service and the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or Microsoft SharePoint Server database.
