HVAC – Energy Management Systems Part 1
Credits: BPI 4.0
Course Description: Getting the most energy savings out of your HVAC requires building systems to be capable of adjustment, such as variable speed drives or demand limiting, as opposed to simple on/off control. However, these strategies often add a higher level of complexity making it more challenging to keep persistent energy savings over time. Energy Management Systems and Analytics are often offered up as a solution to this problem. This course will provide a deep dive exploration on the reality of energy management systems and how they are not a one-size-fits all endeavor and how each one needs its one requirement and parameter for success.
Audience: Building owners, building managers, operators, maintenance professionals, and facility managers.
● Identify key differences between building management systems (BMS) and energy management systems (EMS)
● Review fundamental EMS qualities, controls and techniques appropriate for different users, audiences and end goals
● Explore key performance indicators and strategies for dashboard configuration that provide transparency in building system operations, focusing on HVAC systems
● Evaluate effective EMS implementation, current product availability and successful case studies in new and retrofit projects
