Trust the Process: Strategies for Reducing Larger Commercial Building Plug and Process Loads

Properly managing larger plug and process loads, often referred to as process loads, can lead to substantial energy savings. Watch to hear from two organizations about their experiences and successes in managing process loads. CMTA share their best practices for process load reduction from their experience designing high-performance buildings. Sabey Data Centers share their expert insight and hone in on data center energy efficiency best practices. Additionally, a resource will be featured that outlines best practices on how to identify loads to target for energy reduction, as well as an overview of reduction technologies and strategies for 5 categories of process loads: food handling, refrigeration, internal mobility, data centers, and information technology, and water handling.
