The Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory estimates that between 5% and 30% of a building’s energy use is wasted due to faults and errors in operations. That’s where Monitoring-Based Commissioning (MBCx) comes in.
Jim Vallort co-authored “10 Keys to Monitoring-Based Commissioning Success” for Building Operating Management magazine. He talks about the top ways to optimize MBCx, which includes engaging the building operations team early, looking into incentive programs and understanding the facility’s annual energy spend.
