Abstract: This presentation will explore how commissioning strategies meet real world challenges. Learn about the good, the bad and the ugly of a recent project at the HP headquarters building in Palo Alto, CA. This project involved commissioning select equipment serving over 490,000 sq ft of conditioned office space in an expedited timeframe of 5 weeks. The results were improved system performance and identification over 300,000 kWh/year and 20,000 Therms/year in potential energy savings from diagnosis and remediation. 

This presentation was part of the 28-workshop technical program for CxEnergy 2015. Next year's CxEnergy Conference & Expo will be held in Dallas, April 11-13. CSE readers get 10% discount on registration (use promo code: CSE10). For more information, visit
