Best Practices for Building Performance Tracking
- Goal: Facilitate a more rapid uptake of building performance tracking methods, tools, and strategies into the marketplace.
- Scope: Create and disseminate technical research, case studies, and a practical Guide for owners on best practices for building performance tracking in commercial and institutional buildings.
Specific project objectives include:
- Identify current industry best practice as well as market and technical barriers to building performance tracking.
- Characterize the rapidly evolving energy anomaly and fault detection tools in the market to inform and guide owner selection.
- Identify and characterize energy performance metrics and strategies to track metrics.
- Provide building owners and key market players with a comprehensive, easy-to-use, practical Guide for selecting the best-fit building performance tracking management strategy and supporting technology.
Timeline: September 2009 - September 2011
