Event Details


Come learn about retro commissioning, which is the science of documenting and trouble-shooting energy use in LEED buildings over their lifetime. It's one thing to design a building to be as energy efficient as possible, and quite another to look at energy use over time. Is the building performing as or beyond expected? If so, can we further increase building performance? If not, can we figure out why? The talk will cover the basic principles and practice of retro commissioning, discuss the challenges of developing retro commissioning standards when HVAC systems are so varied and complex, and conclude with the emergence of persistence commissioning for providing deep and persistent energy savings in buildings.
