Increasing Building Efficiency

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Time: 7:30 - 10:00 am

Location: Kitchener Market, 300 King St. E.

How can you improve your building’s performance while reducing costs?

Recommissioning is a re-optimization process for existing buildings that improves a building's overall performance by optimizing energy efficient design features and directly addressing equipment performance and system integration issues.

This process can lead to energy savings, increases in equipment performance, and reductions in your building’s utility costs. Join us as Reg Barsoum (ECOVERT), Dave Braun (MMM Group) and Jeff Quint (saveONenergy) discuss the recommissioning process for your building, its benefits, and the saveONenergy incentives available to make it happen.
