Four Years of On-Going Commissioning in CTEC-Varennes Building with a BEMS Assisted CX Tool
MetadataShow full item record
The development of Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS) offers new opportunities to automate some aspects of commissioning. Reduction of process cost and manual effort on site, transformation of a one time application to a continuous process generating benefits over the entire life of a building, development of a detail systematic approach to improve quality assurance process and integration of energy audit capabilities to improve the overall performance of buildings are some of them. This paper presents the four years result of an on-going commissioning project performed in the CANMET Energy Technology Centre - Varennes (CETC-V) building that has generated 35 % reduction in the energy used. An ongoing BEMS assisted commissioning tool, DABO, developed under IEA Annex 40 by the Canadian team has largely contributed in the verification and optimisation of the performance of the building.
