This workshop will highlight the advantages of re–tuning from the energy savings and occupant comfort perspective. This workshop will provide insights into re-tuning principles and a practitioner's guide for how to apply the re–tuning approach. This will include training on the use of interval metered data and 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 cover how re–tuning should be part of a comprehensive Energy Management Program such as the ISO 50001.
