Associated Renewable Identifies and Corrects Building Deficiencies with Retro Commissioning Services

Local Law 87 was introduced by Mayor Bloomberg and the New York City Council to effectively regulate the energy efficiency quotient in buildings.


New York City, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/24/2013 -- For full compliance with Local Law 87 in New York City, Associated Renewable offers building owners comprehensive energy audits and retro commissioning services which involve a technical assessment of the building’s base systems as well as, identifying and correcting building system deficiencies.

Retro-commissioning is the process of improving the performance of systems through upgrades, without involving new installations. An energy engineer in the Energy Solutions team at Associated Renewable explains, “The energy conservation measures (ECMs) uncovered during retro-commissioning typically involve reprogramming controls, repairing dusty dampers, and replacing faulty actuators, valves, variable speed drives and sensors. A thorough look is also taken at how building operators are using the controls, since poor operational procedures usually lead to energy waste.”
