Re-tuning Commercial Buildings Resources

Researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have developed a number of useful resources to help re-tune large (>100,000 sf) commercial buildings with building automation systems (BASs):

Re-tuning Training Instructor Manual

PNNL also developed an instructors' manual that provides additional information on what to highlight in each of the re-tuning slides. The manual is targeted for instructors provide re-tuning training or teaching re-tuning to community college students focusing on building operations. The manual is intended for lecture, discussion and also provides information on how to conduct hands-on in-the-field training. Each page in the main portion of the guide is a representation of a training slide. Below each slide are notes to the instructors and talking points.
