How to Make the Leap from Firefighting to Predictive Maintenance

Maintenance costs account for almost as much of a facility’s operating budget as energy expenses. Usually, however, this money is spent inadequately with a reactive “wait until it breaks” approach. This webinar will discuss how a proactive, preventive maintenance approach coupled with analytics can reduce a building’s maintenance and energy costs by up to 20%. You won't want to miss this presentation by one of the industry's best dynamic speakers!

Retro-Commissioning and the Non-Energy Benefits of Improving Building Performance

PECO is now offering personalized building assessment reports to your larger customers. This free resource provides an easy-to-digest summary of annual energy usage and costs, heat maps, and recommendations that illustrate potential savings opportunities. By using facility information and 30-minute kW interval data to show energy variations based on weather, day of week, and building schedule, you can see where systems are falling short – and where you can implement retrocommissioning, HVAC, lighting, and control strategies to improve your process. The PECO Team will also review several non-energy related benefits that come along with improving building performance.

Combined Heat & Power (CHP) for Energy Efficiency and Resiliency

Combined Heat & Power (CHP), or cogeneration, is a proven and reliable means to improve energy efficiency and resiliency by co-locating thermal and electrical generation equipment at a single site. This presentation will review CHP fundamentals, CHP technologies, benefits of CHP, site characteristics favorable to CHP, and review case studies. Upon completion, facilities engineers and other interested individuals should be able to understand if CHP is an appropriate technology for their application and how to access free U.S. Department of Energy resources for additional assistance.
