Event highlights

There is a theoretical energy use of any building. How it is used and operated will define the real energy usage. Building Control systems can fine tune the operation of building systems for occupant comfort, energy savings and maintenance performance. In some cases, control systems and strategies are not optimized at the opening of a building or in its regular operations. This session will highlight typical problems, outline control strategies and opportunities for energy savings, and discuss the partnership between Dalhousie, Efficiency NS and Johnson Controls.
