Building Optimization and Demand Management: Reducing Energy Use and Costs at Commercial Buildings

Register for this Event  

Building owners and managers can realize significant energy and cost savings using technologies and strategies in the building optimization ‘toolkit.” Tools include smart meters, EMS/EMIS/BAC software, and tenant education that can help facilitate demand management strategies like load shedding or shifting during peak hours. Demand Response programs can offer additional financial incentives to implement demand management.

Although there are many building optimization technologies and strategies available today, operator/ manager/ tenant behavior and buy-in can present obstacles for implementation. Speakers will discuss challenges they have come across and ways to overcome them.

In this session, speakers will explain the energy and cost-saving opportunities afforded by building optimization and demand management technologies and strategies as well as explore how to address the implementation challenges they have experienced.
