Upcoming Webinar Will Highlight Winning EMIS Projects
An upcoming free webinar will highlight Energy Management and Information Systems (EMIS) projects that have been selected as exemplary by the Smart Energy Analytics Campaign.
The Smart Energy Analytics Campaign is a public-private partnership that encourages the use of a wide variety of commercially available EMIS technologies and ongoing monitoring practices to uncover energy-savings opportunities and improve building performance.
The webinar, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. (Pacific) on Nov. 20, 2019, will highlight projects that have been honored with the campaign's New Installation Award. Project teams will be on hand to comment on their work. Fiona Martin McCarthy, G/BA Project Manager, will present information about G/BA's collaboration with Universal Health Services (UHS), which has embarked on a large-scale monitoring-based commissioning project in numerous UHS hospitals nationwide. The UHS initiative has been recognized in the category of New Installation of a FDD (fault detection and diagnostics) System, Healthcare.
The UHS project incorporates information from analytics platforms by CopperTree Analytics and Lucid. G/BA manages the program and performs retro-commissioning activities at the sites, as well as project management for selected site changes recommended through the investigation and monitoring process. Initial sites in the UHS program include Palmdale Regional Medical Center, Palmdale, CA; Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center, Spring Valley, NV; and Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center, Las Vegas, NV. Work is ongoing.
Participating organizations in the Smart Energy Analytics Campaign include the Building Commissioning Association, ComEd, BOMA International, the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), the U.S. Department of Energy's Better Buildings initiative, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
