Speaker: D.L Gordon Sharp,

Many highly sustainable commercial buildings as well as complex facilities such as laboratories often use sophisticated control systems to increase their energy efficiency.  Unfortunately, facility maintenance staffs are often overtaxed and don't have time to analyze building system performance.  As a result, control systems degrade and building energy use typically rises over time.  This talk will describe the use of intelligent agent systems to analyze a wide range of real time building data including HVAC system performance and indoor environment data to alert operators to system degradation and problems that cut energy efficiency.  Sometimes referred to as real time or monitoring based commissioning, these analytical systems often use dashboards and other very graphical visualization methods.  The result is a practical and simpler means to ensure buildings realize their energy efficiency entitlements and provide a healthier indoor environment not just for when the building is opened, but over the full life of the building.
