Building Energy Simulation Forum: Using Analytics to Achieve High Performance Buildings
- This event has passed.
As building energy and system-level monitoring becomes commonplace, facilities teams are faced with an overwhelming amount of data. This data does not typically lead to insights or corrective actions unless it is stored, organized, and analyzed in automated ways. With sophisticated software applied to everyday building operations, building owners are reaping the cost-savings benefits of energy management and information systems (EMIS) that embed building analytics. Design engineers are beginning to specify EMIS from the start, which helps maintain as-commissioned performance.
The Smart Energy Analytics Campaign is a program led by the U.S. Department of Energy that supports building analytics by providing its participants with technical assistance and opportunities for national recognition. This presentation will provide an introduction to EMIS, key attributes for specification, and an overview of how to get involved in the Campaign.
Boxed lunch will be provided.
About the presenter:
Hannah Kramer, P.E.
