Automated analytics can identify operational issues and improve energy performance of any building. Whether the building is large or small, new or old, LEED platinum or not, room for improvement always exists. This presentation will focus on the basics of setting up an analytics platform and then dive into a few brief case studies to understand how analytics can be used to comprehensively commission a building or find opportunities during retrocommissioning. Finally, we will discuss techniques to prevent performance drift.
