New California Commissioning Guides

The California Commissioning Collaborative (CCC) recently published a set of commissioning guides for new and existing buildings. The project was completed by the CCC, with funding from the California Energy Commission and addresses a key mandate set forth in the Governor’s Executive Order S-20-04 (commonly known as the Green Buildings Initiative). The executive order required the development of building commissioning guidelines to increase energy efficiency in government and private commercial buildings.

The commissioning guides are written for building owners, operators and managers to increase understanding and awareness of the value of commissioning and how to incorporate commissioning into their projects. Although primarily owner-directed, the guides will be useful to commissioning providers, architects, engineers, consultants and other commissioning industry professionals as well.

California Commissioning Guides are available for download:
