Re–tuning is a proven cost–effective method for identifying savings opportunities through the building automation system (BAS). This workshop will provide insights into re–tuning principles and instruct practitioners on how to apply the re–tuning approach. This includes the use of interval metered data and BAS trend data to uncover potential opportunities, and a checklist approach at evaluating building energy systems for best practice control. Training will be provided on several of the most impactful re–tuning measures. Training will also address how re–tuning can be part of a comprehensive energy management program such as 50001 Ready.
