Energy Department Announces Availability of Online Training Course on "Re-tuning" Commercial Buildings

BOMA San Francisco Members:

The U.S. Department of Energy has announced the availability of an online training course to help building owners, operators, contractors, and students "re-tune" commercial buildings. 

Building operators can re-tune their facilities to improve energy efficiency by first collecting and analyzing data from their buildings' automation systems to identify energy-wasting operational problems. They can then adjust their automated control systems to correct inefficiencies at low or no cost, saving them money on their energy bills. Part of the Department's Commercial Building Re-tuning Project, this online training started through a five-year pilot program, and has already provided classroom instruction and field training to more than 300 commercial building operators, engineers, and energy managers from more than 30 organizations. Organizations that have utilized this training include Efficiency Vermont, the City of Denver, the City College of New York, Control Technologies, Inc., and Johnson Controls Inc.
