The secondary goal of the PNNL project is to train a number of "trainers" to carry out the re-tuning training beyond this project. One of the places where that training is being carried out is Penn State's Consortium for Building Energy Innovation (CBEI). Located at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia, CBEI is dedicated to creating pathways to 50% energy reduction in existing buildings by 2030. Building Re-tuning is one of the pathways that will lead to the successful completion of that goal. Participants will gain an understanding of what building retuning training is, what are typical energy saving opportunities found during retuning, learn about the most common operational issues that can be detected and corrected through the re-tuning process, be exposed to content from building retuning training to provide a window into the full building retuning training, discuss the various training options available and learn about the benefits of training facilities staff through tne building re-tuning training model.

One very exciting potential outcome is that this meeting may generate interest for local delivery of Building Retuning Training in the National Capitol region. Maybe you or your organization will create the next center which offers Building Re-tuning training.

Lisa Shulock is a Research Project Manager at Penn State's Consortium for Building Energy Innovation (CBEI), which is focused on reducing energy consumption in the small- and medium-sized commercial buildings sector. She is an experienced leader with senior management, consulting, business and strategic planning, project management, and start-up expertise. Lisa has the LEED AP Operations and Maintenance credential which distinguishes professionals implementing sustainable practices, improving performance, heightening efficiency and reducing environmental impact in existing buildings through enhanced operations and maintenance. Throughout her tenure with CBEI, she has managed multiple projects related to increasing building energy efficiency and strengthening the workforce needed to manage energy efficient buildings.

Commercial buildings account for almost 20% of the total U.S. energy consumption. A significant portion (up to 20%) of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted because of improper operations. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory initiated the Commercial Building Re-tuning project for the U.S. Department of Energy. The Building Re-Tuning program is intended to provide necessary skills to identify no and low-cost operational problems that plague commercial buildings and provide the skills necessary to take corrective action. The secondary goal of the PNNL project is to train a number of "trainers" to carry out the re-tuning training beyond this project. One of the places where that training is being carried out is Penn State's Consortium for Building Energy Innovation (CBEI). Located at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia, CBEI is dedicated to creating pathways to 50% energy reduction in existing buildings by 2030. Building Re-tuning is one of the pathways that will lead to the successful completion of that goal.
