  • Learn about the benefits of commissioning in cx spotlight series and how it contributes to energy savings, fault detection, predictive maintenance, and other building performance improvements.

  • Gain an introduction to MBCx and its unique approach that combines ongoing building energy system monitoring with standard RCx practices, and explore its applications in various settings, such as enterprise-wide, campus, and single-location scenarios.
  • Explore the fundamental principles of MBCx, including establishing baselines, conducting analysis, implementing corrective actions, and reviewing real-world case studies to gain insights into successful MBCx implementation.
