This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


Many jurisdictions have implemented a facility utility efficiency program to reduce the energy and in some cases the water usage in buildings. These programs usually include an energy usage evaluation based on the USEPA Energy Star rating system. The buildings that do not meet the jurisdictions minimum requirements may be required to conduct an existing building commissioning process that is sometimes called a building Tune Up. Many of these energy programs utilize the building audit procedures in ASHRAE Standard 211, Standard for Commercial Building Energy Audits. This standard includes three audit levels that have three increasing levels of detail and effort and thus cost. These audit levels can be related to three levels of EBCx for both the audit performance and the building retro commissioning or tune up to improve the building energy performance. This course explains the requirements for building audits and the relationship to existing building commissioning as described in industry standards.
