Abstract: High efficient equipment selections and advance system designs do not necessarily lead to high performance buildings. In order to truly be a high performance building, the building must operate effectively to maximize the potential energy cost savings for the building owner. Producing these high performance building results requires the implementation and proper use of HVAC optimization control strategies. This paper will prove that equipment should be specified through the use of energy simulation optimization to insure that the greatest potential energy savings can be achieved.
