Today’s High-Performance Technologies for Tomorrow’s Better Future

Understanding how every aspect of a building works together empowers building owners and managers to plan building improvements that save time, money and energy—and improve tenant comfort and well-being. This training will cover the following high-performance technologies and solutions, and the ways that building owners can combine them to optimize building performance:

  • Secondary Window Products: Secondary window products, such as low-e storm windows or secondary glazing systems, are a cost-effective, high-performance alternative to full window replacement for commercial buildings with old, inefficient existing windows. Learn how secondary windows improve occupant comfort, health and wellness, and reduce energy use by up to 20 percent.
  • Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLCs): LLLCs offer commercial buildings an integrated solution that will improve building performance and occupant satisfaction, deliver maximum energy savings, and enable long-term flexibility with tenants and space usage. This training details how LLLCs work, why they’re important, how they should be used, and what incentives are available from regional utilities.
  • Very High Efficiency Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (VHE DOAS): With HVAC systems accounting for more than 39% of the energy used in commercial buildings, finding viable, innovative and high-efficiency HVAC technologies is more important than ever. Learn how VHE DOAS, an up-and-coming HVAC system approach, couple a high-efficiency heat recovery ventilator with a high-efficiency heating and cooling system to improve tenant comfort and indoor air quality in small and medium commercial properties.
