WEEC Attendees Learn from Trane How to Gain Support for High Performance Building Projects

Washington, D.C., Sept. 25, 2013 - Whether new or a retrofit, a high performance building can be a strategic asset that contributes measurable year-over-year benefits, and supports mission-critical objectives.

An expert from Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, will discuss methods to manage and justify the implementation of high performance building projects of all sizes at the World Energy Engineering Conference (WEEC), Sept. 25-27, at the Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.

Neil Maldeis, professional engineer (PE), certified energy manager (CEM), and energy solutions engineering leader for Trane, will present case studies and discuss the methods and tools successfully used to gain approval for high performance building projects.

The methods will range from those that are used to support simple stand-alone projects to techniques that can be used at an enterprise level for multiple projects. Attendees will learn how to calculate the energy and operational savings benefits that can demonstrate a high performance building project’s return-on-investment.
