Abstract

The Commissioning of both existent and new not residential buildings is a common practice in USA or Japan, whereas in Europe can offer new market and technological developments. When an optimization and a continuous evaluation of the performance of building/plant system is in place, the ongoing commissioning of the building and his system is operating. This is seen as a prerequisite for the persistence of high energy performance of buildings. Its practical implementation is constrained by a lack of data and cost, whereas the effects have been proofed to allow energy savings in ranges between 5 -30%. The actual legal and economical framework in Europe (Directive 2002/91/CE and his recasting, 2006/32/CE, 20/20/20 plan etc.) offer the possibility to a synergy between the energy certification of buildings and the aim to reduce the final consumption of energy through the ongoing commissioning of building/plant systems, that represent about the 40% of the EU energy consumption. The aim of project Building EQ is to develop tools and instruments for link the energy certification and the ongoing commissioning of not residential buildings. Objective of the project is to apply “light” monitoring of equipment performance in order to identify saving potential through the set-points optimization and the fault detection and diagnosis. Expected payback is under 3 years. The article aim to show the actual results of the project, like the procedure developed, the minimal data set that is measured on 13 demonstration buildings in Europe by the six participants and highlight result expected by the short coming end of the project.
