Roadmap for Building Commissioning Research Workshop Summary Report



Natascha S. Milesi-Ferretti, David Shipley, Walter Zalis, Steven T. Bushby


This report summarizes the results of the Building Commissioning Research and Measurement Science Needs Webinar Workshop held on April 29, 2014, sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This effort supports ongoing research into building commissioning, a practice that has a significant potential for reducing energy consumption in existing and new buildings. This report documents an assessment of research needs in the commissioning industry to provide the information necessary for making informed research investment decisions. To that end, this report organizes and presents input from the building industry on the state of the building commissioning industry, the research priorities associated with it, and the measurement science necessary to keep pace with technological advances.
