Improving building energy system performance by continuous commissioning Conference Paper uri icon


  • Commissioning has played important role in improved building comfort and reduced energy consumption. This paper presents an advanced form of commissioning for existing buildings, called Continuous Commissioning (CC), which has produced energy savings comparable to those produced by the traditional audit/retrofit process at a third of the cost. It has also increased operating staff skills, reduced maintenance costs, and improved building comfort - 'extras' which are not provided by usual retrofit programs. This paper will present the philosophy, process, cost and savings.
