Project Description

As a pre-approved Retro-Commissioning provider through BGE’s Small Building Tune-Up program, HBS Solutions was able to provide a Turn-Key approach that identified, evaluated, quantified, implemented and verified Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs). The ECMs included in this engagement provided improved operational efficiency and resulted in quick returns on investment. Particular attention was focused on low-cost and operational driven savings as core strategies to energy conservation.

The BGE Small Building Tune-Up (SBTU) process involves four phases: the application, energy study, implementation and verification phase. Financial incentives are provided through the program that cover up to 75% of the total project costs, with a per project cap of $15,000.

The energy study included a Level I Energy Audit, on-site data measurement and Building Automation System analysis. This process provided insight through Hands-On investigation which helped HBS identify operational inefficiencies that were impacted occupancy comfort and energy consumption.


Energy Conservation Measures Implemented

  • Optimize HVAC Equipment Operating Schedules
  • Commissioned & Repair VAV Boxes
  • Reprogrammed Temperature Set Points
  • Installed Occupancy Based Control VAV Boxes
  • Adjusted Unoccupied Heating Set Points
  • Eliminated Simultaneous Heating & Cooling

Each ECM implemented was monitored through Measurement & Verification procedures in order to measure their effectiveness and document actual Energy Savings.
