Abstract

In 2005, the Executive Committee of the International Energy Agency s (IEA) Energy Conservation in Buildings and Community Systems (ECBCS) program approved the start of a new four-year research project on building commissioning. Annex 47, on Cost-Effective Commissioning for Existing and Low Energy Buildings is an international research project involving twelve countries.The Annex research project has completed a one-year planning phase and has launched the working phase. Early results include 1) the detailed workplan, 2) guidance documents for performing functional tests of advanced systems as well as conventional systems and 3) a standardized cost-benefit methodology. This paper presents an overview of the international research plan for 2006-2008, based on the participant work plan, and presents the important research effort to obtain and document the energy savings and non-energy benefits of commissioning new and existing buildings using international projects. Additional providers are invited to contribute to this study.
