EBCx of a College Campus


The University of Saskatchewan hired a local commissioning team (composed of three local commissioning provider firms) to conduct EBCx on 26 campus buildings. The goal of the project was to reduce GHG by 15% (4500 tonnes CO2e). Each team had 8 or 9 buildings and was responsible for 1/3 of the energy savings (1500 tonnes CO2e each). In this presentation, Kevin will provide an overview of the strategy of tackling 9 buildings in a short timeframe, the challenges of work with campus personnel, the process of commissioning the HVAC systems and the results of the EBCx. Kevin will also highlight the top 10 issues found on this project as well as the most common issues generally found during EBCx.
