Abstract: Energy modeling and retrocommissioning can effectively share information to aid in building investigations. This session provides an overview of the mechanics of energy modeling, specific energy model inputs that can be enhanced by RCx information, and examples of how to include RCx findings in energy models. It also includes a discussion of the insights gleaned from an energy model that should be used in RCx, and strategies to capitalize on synergies between the services.
