This course will discuss the COVID-19 related adaptations commercial buildings have implemented. From changing schedules from full-space to partial-space operations, to increased ventilation, to new technologies, participants will explore the benefits, challenges, and energy impacts of each strategy.
This course is ideal for onsite O&M staff responsible for day-to-day building operation; O&M staff management looking to integrate energy efficiency into their O&M procedures; and offsite contractors (retro-commissioning agents or control vendors) hired to improve a building's energy efficiency.
Basic understanding of commercial building systems (e.g. air handling units, VAV boxes, boilers, chillers) and familiarity with basic functions of building automation systems.
