Monitoring-Based Commissioning Can Cut Commercial Building Energy Use and Peak Demand
Monitoring-based commissioning is a process which monitors building system operations to identify and correct inefficiencies and thereby improve building energy performance over time. The process can optimize HVAC set points and locate and address problems such as stuck ventilation dampers or systems that needlessly operate when buildings are unoccupied. Many utilities and other efficiency program implementers are looking for new ways to save large amounts of energy as savings from lighting programs decline due to the rapid adoption of LED lighting. Monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx) can help fill this gap.
