Operations & Maintenance Strategies are expanding to include virtual capabilities for identifying and resolving building system errors. The training session will provide an overview of three Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) tools that support commissioning and re-tuning; The Existing Building Commissioning Tool, which directs building management towards the adoption of one of several approaches to commissioning based on the apparent needs of the building, the Re-tuning candidate checklist, which evaluates a building’s suitability for Re-tuning and the Building Re-tuning Simulator, an energy modeling tool that allows for investigation of re-tuning measures, providing energy savings estimates and ability for performing parametric studies on measure parameters.
