Clean Business Energy Council webinar 6/4/2020 includes a presentation from Facility Energy Solutions on Covid-19 as a Non-routine Event in energy projects. The focus of this was on Energy Savings Performance Contracts
Session provided an overview on IPMVP and non-routine adjustments as well as two ESCO case-studies.
Impressive ESCo case-study on managing the impacts from Covid at Mall of the Emirates.
Demand response (DR) is becoming a key grid resource, and targeted DR efforts may be part of a 'wires alternative' or 'grid enabled buildings' to support system reliability.
M&V for Demand Response Applications webinars by Facility Energy Solutions covered Recent webinars include:
Measurement and verification (M&V) methods for DR are prescribed by FERC and adopted by utilities are very different than IPMVP's methods.
Webinar Protocols for Advanced M&V: Helping You See Clearly, sponsored by DOE and hosted by NEEP on 4/30/2020, covered the full spectrum of program applications using AM&V - Evaluation, Programs & Projects.

BCA's Commissioning Lab. An excellent five days of hands-on building commissioning activities at Sacramento City College (SCC) was held in January 2019. Sponsored by the Building Commissioning Association (BCA) and attended by 13 professional Cx providers, new and existing building commissioning activities included design review of chilled and hot water heating plants, used state-of-the-art field-measurement tools, assessed control sequences, estimated end-to-end sensor error, and functional tested air-side and heating equipment.
At the end of the week, the commissioning teams had identified over 50 deficiencies at the site. The course was led by Lia Webster (Facility Energy Solutions), hosted by Jon Zeh (SCC), and supported by Saverio Grosso (Edison Energy) and Ryan Stroupe (PG&E).
Facility staff from Salem-Keizer are participating in the BOC Level 1 Certification, which includes eight one-day classes . Trainings provided by Facility Energy Solutions include:
BOC 1001: Building System Maintenance, June 2019
These is the first class of eight in the series, and spans two days to ensure the basic building systems are well understood.
BOC 1006 Common Opportunities for Low-Cost Operational Improvements, October 2019
Understand typical areas and problems associated with different system types and equipment, as well as tools and techniques for identifying opportunities
BOC 1006: Common Opportunities for Low-Cost Operational Improvement, Feb. 2019
Over 30 facility staff members from Multnomah ESD, Vancouver School District, Portland State University and many other organizations completed their final BOC class for this cohort. Many from this excellent group plan to attend the new BOC Level II certification series.
Energy and sustainability assessments of critical data center and laboratory spaces at four Naval bases included over 40 buildings . The assessment provided preliminary energy savings recommendations for over 100 critical areas. Energy savings of over 2.5 GWh were calculated for over 350 upgrades to mechanical systems, UPS, lighting, and controls (2019).
