Retro-commissioning is a process to improve an existing building’s performance. Using a whole-building systems approach, retro-commissioning identifies operational improvements that will increase occupant comfort, save energy, and provide cost savings. Retro-commissioning (RCx) offers managers a customizable plan and tools to evaluate how a facility is currently operating, identify specific opportunities for improvement, and implement solutions for optimal efficiency. Upon successful completion of this course, participants will have the knowledge and skills to develop a plan that results in energy savings for their existing buildings. Participants will also learn about financial incentives that are available for utility ratepayers that can offset the up-front costs of retro-commissioning a building.
