Event description
HVAC technology enhancements for energy conservation

About this Event

Do you know how to get the largest energy savings in your commercial buildings? HVAC as a single system is 45-70% of a building’s energy use—making it the biggest energy user and a major retro-fit target. For comparison, lighting is usually just 10-30%. Even though these percentages depend on climate, building type and building usage, HVAC still has one of the largest impacts on energy use. Ryan Hoger will discuss the newest energy saving HVAC technologies, improvements and alternative solutions, so you can initiate change in commercial buildings.


1. Explain the latest in energy saving HVAC technologies.

2. Describe energy efficiency improvements that have the largest impacts for least cost.

3. Identify financial incentives for energy efficiency improvements.

4. Discuss how other building systems affect HVAC performance.
