How to Kill Your Energy Hogs: Managing Building Energy Consumption, cleanenergy.org

The author talks about retro commissioning and that the largest consumer of energy in a building is HVAC. He provides a three-step approach to energy efficiency via commissioning. These steps include: making sure it’s off when it’s supposed to be off (he mentions a VAV retrofit as a solution), making sure it is working right when it’s on and “is there a better way?”. The author also lists three areas of opportunity- lighting, DCV and static pressure reset.
