We will host a brown bag lunch seminar entitled "What Makes a Successful Retro-Commissioning Project" later this month. The seminar will commence at 12 noon on Wednesday, February 15, in the Harris Bank Building, 115 South LaSalle Street, Chicago. Sieben Energy Associates has to date performed over 80 retro-commissioning projects, comprising over 55 million square feet of building space.
During this seminar, we will draw upon our leadership and expertise in retro-commissioning to advise members of the Building Owners and Managers Association of Chicago (BOMA Chicago) on the project attributes that lead to a positive outcome. This event is listed on the BOMA Chicago website.
Based on our experience with the ComEd retro-commissioning incentive program, successful projects can yield annual energy savings of 5% to 10% from low-cost, rapid-payback energy-saving measures. Avoiding common pitfalls, however, is key to realizing a project's full potential.
We will discuss the characteristics of ideal building candidates, ComEd program requirements, those common pitfalls, and ways to maintain savings following project completion.
Our website features a number of retro-commissioning case studies representing just a handful of our many successful projects.
We look forward to seeing our BOMA Chicago friends on February 15. For more information about this seminar, including where and how to register, download the seminar flyer.
