As soon as payment has been made each individual will receive an access code to obtain their certificate for credits.


Commissioning is on the cusp of evolution beyond the single-building perspective and expanding into commissioning buildings as part of a broader infrastructure where resilience, reliability, efficiency and performance form the basis for "smart cities" and sustainable portfolios.

Performance Excellence in Electricity Renewal (PEER), is a third-party rating program for sustainable power system performance in city-scale projects, campus projects and locally-generated power supply projects. Similar to the LEED rating system, the program is composed of prerequisites plus core and bonus points. Green Business Certification, Inc. (GBCI) administers both programs on behalf of USGBC.

What’s in it for commissioning providers? A lot! This is a global market transformation, and a growth area for functional testing and verification of building and infrastructure performance.

Utilities face several major opportunities that are challenging the electricity system — a shift to cleaner energy sources, rising demand, increasing amounts of data, and a desire for customers to contribute to sustainability goals. Utilities can leverage the PEER standard and lessons learned from PEER applications to expand into utility microgrids and district energy systems.
