PennTAP hosted a Building Re-Tuning and Operations Conference (BRTOC) on March 3, 2020 for managers and employees overseeing the success of school and municipality building performance. Attendees learned about low and no-cost opportunities to enhance their building performance to optimize energy efficiency.
Morning sessions covered everything from data collection, funding opportunities and walkthrough protocols to HVAC systems, solar technology, and indoor air quality. After lunch, there was a roundtable of trained building operators who had successfully implemented BRT practices and discussed the positive outcomes. PennTAP advisors then led a site walkthrough at Rec Hall, an older building at Penn State going through its own re-tuning process. 76 conference attendees got hands-on experience using tools of the trade and got their BRT questions answered by knowledgeable experts. BOC and CEU certificates were also awarded at this event. For more information, check out the conference agenda featuring over a dozen speakers.
