Building control strategies

Building Automation Systems (BAS) are the new age HVAC control systems, which dictate the operation of our HVAC equipment. These sophisticated systems provide many benefits that legacy control systems do not. This webinar will introduce you to the opportunities that a BAS provides and offer tips on how to utilize BAS to maximum performance, minimize energy consumption, and make life easier on the building operator.

Common ventilation issues and heat recovery opportunities

Facility HVAC operations often include conditioning outdoor air for ventilation purposes and may also include the exhausting of air from the building. Inappropriate control of either of these processes can result in underperforming, energy intensive building operations. This webinar will detail the interdependencies of outdoor air and exhaust air operations. You will learn how to recognize energy conservation opportunities for these types of operations. Additionally, we will cover the concepts of heat recovery and thermal energy storage.

Capture energy savings in new commercial construction

In 2015, Minnesota adopted a new commercial building energy code with the largest increase in energy performance. Given the advancement of that magnitude, are there energy savings relative to energy code that can still be achieved and what are the energy implications? What support will help commercial building owners and developers achieve energy code savings potential? What kinds of beyond-code energy savings opportunities are still out there and how might utility conservation programs help to capture them? Join us as we tackle these questions and discuss the results of our recent field study funded by the Conservation and Applied Research and Development grant.
