About the California Commissioning Collaborative

The CCC is a California nonprofit public benefit corporation. Our purpose is:

  • To improve building and system performance by developing and promoting viable building commissioning practices in California
  • To facilitate the development of cost effective programs, tools, techniques and service delivery infrastructure to enable the implementation of building commissioning processes
  • To educate and inform concerning building commissioning processes
  • To identify opportunities, establish priorities and promote solutions relating to building commissioning processes in California

The CCC has no formal members. Anyone who lives or works in California and supports our goals, ideals and purposes is welcome to attend meetings and contribute their ideas. We do have a Board of Directors that govern the CCC. Board Members represent the organizations that fund the CCC.

The CCC also has an Advisory Council that helps direct the CCC's projects and priorities by offering new ideas, asking questions, providing input, and identifying additional useful resources. The Advisory Council is a group of individuals who have a vested interest in the health and growth of the commissioning industry in California. The Advisory Council is appointed by the Board and has between 15 and 20 members. They include Commissioning Providers, building owners and representatives of utilities and research labs.

2016-2020 Strategic Plan

The California Commissioning Collaborative released its 5-year strategic plan in early 2016. Developed as a follow up to the 2015 California Commissioning Summit, the CCC Strategic Plan lays out a vision for maintaining CCC’s leadership role in the commissioning industry. The ambitious objectives outlined in the plan will inform ongoing project development and the CCC’s annual work plans. The CCC 2016-2020 Strategic Plan can be downloaded here.

The growth of California’s commissioning industry in the 21st century

A lot has happened since the CCC was formed in 2000: The success of utility retrocommissioning programs, the inclusion of commissioning in building codes, policy development, development of tools and resources, and an ever-growing pool of commissioning experts. The CCC is proud to have played a role in that growth, and developed an infographic to help tell the story of the growth of commissioning. The infographic can be downloaded here.

U.S.DOE Smart Energy Analytics Campaign

The Smart Energy Analytics Campaign is a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy that supports and recognizes the use of a wide variety of commercially-available Energy Management and Information Systems (EMIS) technologies and ongoing building monitoring practices to help uncover energy-saving opportunities and improve building performance for the long run. The Campaign’s objectives are aligned with CCC’s mission and so we are happy to support the Campaign as an Organizing Partner. Find out more about Smart Energy Analytics Campaign here.
