The conference will bring together an international group of practitioners and researchers who routinely minimize the energy consumption, operating costs, and environmental impacts of buildings while improving the health and comfort of occupants. ICEBO 2009 is the leading forum for timely exchanges among individuals interested in the continuous improvement and maintenance of buildings, their energy usage and environmental impact. The topics to be discussed are:
  • Worldwide best practices in commissioning, retro-commissioning, and Continuous Commissioning® new and existing buildings
  • Mission-critical facilities (hospitals, data centers, central utility plants, etc.) operation optimization for best performance and maximum energy savings
  • Improved building automation, controls, and sensor accuracy
  • Commissioning for Energy Star and LEED® (NC and EB) certifications
  • Achieving sustainability, saving energy, and improving occupant comfort
  • Planning and designing intelligent buildings'
  • On-site renewable energy applications (wind, solar, fuel cell, etc.)
  • Measuring and verifying performance of building improvements
  • Success stories of combined heat and power (CHP) and distributed generation (DG)
  • New federal and state building energy efficiency initiatives
