explores the application of HVAC Analytics on energy efficiency projects, which
previously would have been at risk for persistence. Equipment and its operation
will degrade over time without a cost-effective means of monitoring and a staff
structure to make improvements and help good performance persist. Using data,
rolled up to key performance indicators (KPI), to monitor performance allows
staff to easily assure systems are not drifting out of optimal performance.
Analytics serves another viable role for an organization by informing design of
new systems and equipment replacements. And
finally, analytics readily support Environmental Health and Safety
requirements, another critical aspect of building performance. We will talk about how owners are thinking
about and responding to known barriers, including lessons learned, and steps
being taken to address them.
