Verification of Existing Building Commissioning Energy Savings

  • Goal: Resolve technical barriers to the effective verification of energy savings and provide practical guidance on applying industry-accepted methods to verify existing building commissioning (EBCx) project savings.
  • Scope: Create and disseminate a practical Guide for selecting and implementing verification methods for existing building commissioning (EBCx) projects.

Specific project objectives include:

  • Pilot the Interval Data Energy Models methodology as applied to whole buildings and building subsystems and identify ways to improve upon the method.
  • Develop criteria and guidance on how to select appropriate verification methods for EBCx projects based on the project goals and resources.
