As much as 20 percent of energy consumed in commercial buildings is due to inefficient operations. This is energy that can be saved with operational improvements and does not require major capital investments. Building re–tuning training is a program developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratories (PNNL), with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, to educate building operators, facility engineers and the service personnel in commercial buildings about how to find and fix these energy–wasting practices.
PNNL developed training materials for in–person and online building re–tuning training as well as extensive resources to support re–tuning efforts. DOE funded the Consortium for Building Energy Innovation (CBEI) to expand in–person BAS and non–BAS building re–tuning training. Working with national partners, BOMA International and APPA, access to building re–tuning training is becoming increasingly available.
Re–Tuning Resources Available for Download
All training materials are publically available for download on the PNNL re–tuning website. Building re–tuning case studies can be found at CBEI.
