The BIMsider’s favourite Podcasts, Vodcasts and Videos from the world of AEC and BIM –  for the week of May 20th – May 26th, 2018.

I’m going to start this week’s Roundup off with a podcast from the ConTechCrew.

Ep. 06 – Makerspaces & Incubators: Plugging Manufacturers Into Tech Talent, with Bill Fienup and Jeff Garascia

Summary from Podcast website:

“Innovative technology talent is tough to come by for manufacturers looking to make their equipment “smarter.” But the business incubator and makerspace mHub in Chicago is turning the talent model upside down, enabling companies like the Marmon Group to contract out fresh solutions to industry challenges by tapping into mHub’s deep pool of IoT talent.”

3) Vodcast – From the JBKnowledge YouTube Channel.

Microgrid: Creating Resiliency for Cities and Establishing a New Energy Marketplace

Summary from Podcast website:

Maggie Clout, Business Development Manager at Siemens. She is the lead business developer for 17 project wins of New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) NYPrize Community Microgrid Program.

We discuss a pilot project where Siemens worked with a company, LO3, to transact, buy and sell solar energy between neighbors on a blockchain. From a real estate standpoint using a Microgrid platform can allow for transparency in how much energy you’ve used,  sold, bought, and what the financial benefits are. It opens up a door for real estate owners to generate income from unused electricity or heat generation in their portfolios.”
