Dubuque Meeting Hears About Energy Audits

Alliant

A presentation given this week by Alliant Energy on retro-commissioning to Dubuque business people and municipal officials detailed how the process can improve operations in their offices and facilities.

TH Online reports that the meeting, which was held at Diamond Jo Casino, was attended by about 60 people. The group was told that buildings are designed for how they are expected to be used. These plans shift and morph, and the strategy needs to be refined accordingly. An audit can help identify areas for improvement.

The group was addressed by the plant engineering supervisor for Mercy Medical Center-Dubuque, which has had an audit. He said that 12 suggestions were provided. Utilizing seven cost $97,000 – and provided $72,744 in savings annually.

Energy audits – both real and virtual – are keys to improving and subsequently maintaining building performance.
