2017 marks the 25th Anniversary of NCBC. This event is more than a conference – for many attendees it’s the most essential learning experience of the year! The intense 3-days provide the only opportunity for all stakeholders in the built environment – owners, design and construction professionals, commissioning providers and other contributors – to gather and share knowledge, gain insight into the future of building technology, or identify and use essential tools for delivering outstanding commercial buildings.

Nexant will be presenting an overview of utility incentive programs for existing building commissioning (EBCx). Learn about impactful EBCx program models including retro-commissioning (RCx) and monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx) and many important innovations, trends, and opportunities for all stakeholders.  Nexant’s client ComEd will also be presenting details of their industry leading ComEd RCx Offering.  Finally, Nexant will moderate an expert panel with several EBCx experts and stakeholders.

Join our session at NCBC to connect with leading EBCx experts and
learn about exciting new EBCx program partnership opportunities.

Utility missioning programs for existing buildings deliver EBCx services to a wide range of facility types and sizes and achieve significant impacts for utilities, their customers, commissioning service providers, and other stakeholders. These programs are infusing the building market with utility incentive funds for energy efficiency and driving innovative solutions to expand scope, integrate advanced technologies, and go beyond a one-size-fits-all approach. To fully realize the potential of utility commissioning programs, stakeholders must work together to maximize new opportunities and sustain mutual success. The speakers will:

  • Outline program models and benefits from all stakeholders’ perspectives
  • Highlight key insights, innovations, and trends from EBCx programs across the country
  • Identify next steps for each stakeholder to help deliver more impacts through EBCx

A discussion follows the presentation providing attendees with an overview of utility commissioning programs along with program examples, insights, innovations and trends. The goal of this session is to prepare the audience for engaging key stakeholders in working together to maximize new opportunities by understanding the current state and value proposition of utility EBCx programs.
