Video: Sustainability, decarbonization and electrification: Buzzwords or the future of the building performance industry?
Sustainability, decarbonization and electrification are appearing with increasing frequency in general and industry media. What do these terms mean in the context of our industry, and why are they important?
There are project design and construction related challenges that are encountered during the testing, adjusting, and balancing (TAB) process. This presentation offers solutions and ideas to help overcome challenges that will help optimize system performance and prove that design intent has been met.
Video: ACG building systems commissioning guideline spotlight: electrical distribution equipment terminology
Where the construction industry appears vague or lacking in guidance for defining terminology, this presentation intends to provide several means of clarifying one such term: electrical power distribution, or electrical distribution equipment.
Electrical engineers need to know where and how a source isolation switch (SIS) might be deployed as well as the concept of “battery first” to optimize sustainability.
Most electrical engineers know about UL 1008: Transfer Switch Equipment, and they need to learn about UL 3008: Automatic Interconnection Switches for Emergency Systems.
Understand what is different in a battery energy storage system (BESS) application versus a generator application.
A battery energy storage system (BESS) is often seen as an emergency source, as are generators. But what are the pros and cons? See video.
Increased demand for renewable energy is driving the adoption of battery and photovoltaic design requests.
Electrical engineers are focusing on cabling and wiring, generators and transfer switches. What else is on the horizon? See video.
This presentation offers professional insights and strategies on provider topics, from system specific Cx deliverables, to managing teams and directing resources, to marketing and preparing requests for services.
