BUILDING ENERGY - Fall 2016 - 42


A modern
BAS serves
as the
central
nervous
system of a
building, and
can easily
integrate
with IoTenabled
devices.

Measuring, tracking, and regular reporting
of the results from these strategies is critical
to ensure continued support and success.
Fine tune tools and programs and
encourage their continued use: In order
to ensure the continued success of these
initiatives, it is critical to develop a certain
cadence that turns into a routine for occupants
and management, and also has enough variety
to keep participants interested. When energyconscious decisions, supported by data and
analysis, become part of the daily operating
culture of an organization, we will begin to
realize great benefits.
As owners, building managers, engineers
and vendors, we all share a responsibility to
engage the occupants who use and depend
on our buildings; it is critical that they are
involved and feel a need to lessen the energy
burden of their building through a sense of
ownership and shared responsibility. If we can
save even 10 percent of our daily energy spend
through increased occupant engagement, we
will make a significant and measurable impact
on our nation's energy landscape. This should
be an inclusive effort, and today's technology
has given us the ability to engage all users of a
building easily and cost effectively.
