Building Performance efforts seek to improve the energy performance of existing buildings by taking a comprehensive approach to improving their energy efficiency, comfort and productivity. Building performance initiatives address building systems (HVAC, lighting, etc.) as well as operations and maintenance (O&M). Common building performance services include building tune-ups, comprehensive building assessments and retrofits.
- Building Rating and Disclosure
Building owners and potential purchasers and renters rarely have access to the information they need to understand the energy efficiency of a given building and opportunities for improvement.
- Commissioning and Retrocommissioning
Commissioning is a quality assurance process for new construction projects that begins with pre-design and continues through design, construction, etc.
- Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
HVAC systems are comprised of the heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems in a residential or commercial building. These mechanical systems provide thermal comfort and air quality.
Existing housing stock offers tremendous opportunities for energy savings.
