Building Operator Certification and Building Re-Tuning Training


Publication Date: January 24, 2013

“Building operators, who manage the day-to-day operations of commercial and multifamily residential buildings, ensuring proper operation of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, and other building systems, are well situated to promote energy efficient operation of these buildings. A capable workforce of building operators literate in energy efficiency concepts can identify and help to implement low- or even no-cost energy saving strategies. These solutions may involve data collection on existing building system performance as well as subsequent adjustments to these systems to ensure optimal operation at designed levels. Further, knowledgeable operators, because they are routinely engaged with building system performance, are uniquely well-positioned to advise owners about current building system inefficiencies, which when addressed and resolved through energy retrofits can yield high returns on investment.”
