  5. CCC Projects RCx Seminar Proposal to BOMA • Proposal for a 75-minute presentation to be given by Phil Welker and Craig Sheehy on behalf of the CCC • Learning Outcomes: • Understand the business case for using retrocommissioning to save money on utility costs and improve building performance and occupant comfort • Familiarity with the retrocommissioning process, requirements, and benefits. Understanding of the effort and resources needed to ensure that the benefits achieved from retrocommissioning are long-lasting • Awareness of the information and resources available to assist in planning, financing and executing retrocommissioning projects

  6. Project Update Market Research and Toolkit Market Research • Cx and RCx marketing materials will focus on two separate market sectors: • Office • Hospital/healthcare • Next Step: Interview owners to determine effective messaging strategies • Contact Kristin Heinemeier if you have leads on owners who could provide insight

  7. Project Update Market Research and Toolkit Toolkit • Objective: Develop templates for Cx providers to reduce reporting time and improve communication with owners • The toolkit will contain spreadsheet tools for energy calculations such as: • Optimize/reset duct static pressure setpoint • Optimize pumping system • Condenser water supply temp reset • Next Step: Online survey of CCC participants • Vet list of potential spreadsheet tools • Gather input on rigor needed in these tools

  8. Project Update Market Research and Toolkit Toolkit (cont.) • Building metrics tool development in partnership with NEEA and NBI • Will facilitate reporting EMS and whole building meter data, focusing on reporting performance metrics and creating standard charts for systems common to large buildings • CCC contribution will provide the ability to: • Create charts common to Energy Information Systems • Create user-defined, rather than pre-defined charts

  9. Project Update Market Research and Toolkit Project Advisory Committee • Need participants: • From CCC • Other stakeholders from technical or owner-side • Contact Kristin Heinemeier if you would like to be involved, or to recommend someone for the PAC • • 530.750.3562

  10. Project Update Diagnostics Training Sponsorship • NBI Diagnostics Program, supported by PIER • Seminar for Cx Providers (and others) on FDD Tools that are currently available • Seeking Co-Sponsorship from CCC Advanced Tools for Enhancing Building Performance: How to Use Currently Available Fault Detection and Diagnostics Tools in Commissioning December 13, 9:30 – 11:30 PST Webcast

  11. Project Update Issues to be Addressed in FDD Seminar • What kinds of specific problems does it solve? • In what ways can it be used as a part of a commissioning process? • What are its direct/indirect benefits and costs, and how can these be best conveyed to a potential customer or decision-maker? • What is the market for the product, and how can a provider determine if a particular building is a good candidate for it? • What is the next step for commissioning providers who are interested in using it in their businesses?

  43. CCC Proposed Amendments to Acceptance Testing Requirements in Title 24 Mark Hydeman Taylor Engineering

  44. Future Discussion Topic • Reinhard Seidl, Taylor Engineering

  45. Commissioning Made Accessible • Reasons for talking about simplifying Cx • Compelling reasons to simplify • Practical aspects of changing Cx approach • Potential improvements

  46. Reasons for Talking About Simplifying Cx • Different nomenclature used by different firms • Customers not really sure what is being offered • Cost savings are not clear • Attempts to standardize a level of quality end up with “fuzzy” requirements

  47. Compelling Reasons to Simplify • Nationwide energy split about 30% / 30% / 30% for transportation, industry and commercial/domestic housing • A large portion of commercial real estate is existing building stock and is either inefficient by design or operates inefficiently • This large group of buildings offers a good prospect of reducing peak loads and overall energy use

  48. Practical Aspects of Changing Cx Approach • In an ideal world, we would know • Actual cost of Cx before implementation • Actual savings of Cx before implementation for LCC • Challenges in the real world • Each building is different. Contractor pricing is subject to change, bidding process for Cx is not well developed • Estimation of savings may require fairly advanced energy modeling and needs to be reviewed for rebates • Measurement and verification of results can be very costly and requires expert review • With a specialized market and professionals, there is no performance standard to compare against for an owner, nor a way to compare pricing and results

  49. Potential Improvements • Performance Approach vs Compliance Approach • Already used for other complex models such as T-24 compliance • Compliance approach is used by PG&E for variable speed drives • Possible Compliance Approach for Cx measures in general? • Target “low hanging fruit” measures – the best understood and most widely applicable • Standardize measures and savings • Describe methods (such as economizer approaches in T24) • Standardize testing / proof of compliance forms • Allows cost comparison of various bidders

  50. Benefits • Process easier to implement • Easier for consumers to learn about what’s possible with well-defined measures and associated savings/rebates • Aim is to increase number of buildings that actually go through a Cx process and become more efficient • Even if savings per building are less than what would be accomplished by “custom” approach, overall savings statewide or nationwide would be larger thanks to larger volume
