Continuous Commissioning® Workshop
hosted by the Energy Systems Laboratory
The trademarked Continuous Commissioning® (CC®) process, developed by the ESL, focuses on the optimization of public, commercial, and institutional building operations. The CC® process is the most complete form of existing building commissioning (EBCx), incorporates and extends the best of EBCx practices, integrates cost effective measures, including operational strategies and processes, as well as cutting-edge tools and technologies developed by the Energy Systems Laboratory. The CC® process has been implemented in hundreds of buildings around the world in various climates.
Improving Texas Economic Resilience with Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
hosted by Department of Energy Combined Heat and Power Southcentral TAP
U.S. coastal communities are increasingly becoming more concerned about the impact of natural disaster events on critical infrastructure. Over the last few years, several large and destructive storms have resulted in extensive, wide-spread power outages, as well as degraded critical infrastructure, reduced availability of key economic inputs and resources, disrupted supply chains and negatively impacted workforce availability and productivity.
Join us for an interactive workshop that will provide facility and energy managers, offices of emergency management, contractors, engineers, and public sector officials with some of the latest strategies and methodologies for how combined heat and power (CHP) can help safeguard facilities from business disruption due to natural disasters. Industry experts will provide data, research, resources and case studies explaining how CHP can increase facility resilience and offset the costs for electricity, thermal energy and traditional backup power.

2015 IECC and IC3 hosted by the Energy Systems Laboratory
This workshop will provide the attendee with an overview of significant updates to the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) as well as an in-depth look into the International Code Compliance Calculator (IC3). The IC3 is a web-based software tool designed to provide a simulated performance of energy code compliance for single family residential construction. This powerful, easy to use software tool has been developed by the Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL) of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES). The tool can capture quantitative above-code compliance as well as emissions reduction credits for the State Implementation Plan (SIP). IC3 features a simplified entry of the minimum house parameters necessary to estimate energy performance as compared with the Texas Building Energy Performance Standards (TBEPS).Participates will gain a full understanding on how simple it is to achieve 2015 IECC compliance with the IC3 tool.
Intelligent Efficiency: Rethinking the way we Leverage Data
Presented by McKinstry
McKinstry is pleased to present a special pre-conference workshop on “intelligent efficiency,” a concept taking hold in the market based on information awareness and data analytics. The last two major economic revolutions were caused by the convergence of two factors: communications and energy. We are now on the verge of a third revolution. This revolution is driven by the convergence of IOT (Internet of things) and data analytics, creating new ways to drive wring the towel of energy efficiency and create a better built environment. This workshop will change the way you think about energy efficiency and big Data.
