SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific Conservation Inc. (SCI), a leading provider of energy efficiency, system optimization and Automated Continuous Commissioning (ACC) solutions for the $5 billion commercial building market, today announced it has teamed with renowned environmental specialist, John Picard.



"I was absolutely drawn to SCI.  I have been waiting the last 20 years for an innovation that allows owners and facility managers to see their building systems on a more granular level, with real-time data informing their energy and maintenance decisions.  Architects and engineers are also taking an increased role in the environmental performance of buildings and their subsystems, and the company's SCIwatch™ solution will help measure and fine-tune these systems.  I'm very excited to bring SCIwatch to my clients," said Picard.

"We absolutely welcome John's enthusiasm and partnership in helping us to drive energy savings and carbon reduction in the built environment.  While he understands that the green movement requires solid business fundamentals, it's his passion for the planet and sustainable buildings that is extremely contagious," said Russ McMeekin, CEO, Scientific Conservation Inc.

Picard spearheaded the Greening of the White House during the first Clinton Administration.  The Greening of the White House gave birth to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), known today as the most influential and fastest growing non-profit.  Picard lent his environmental expertise to some of the world's most recognizable brands: Gap, Sony, Williams Sonoma, Apple, BMW, BP, MGM, Interface, Discovery Channel, and many more.
