As companies strive to become carbon neutral, they’ve started to look at the various systems operating their facilities. This webinar will review the importance of backup power generation and evaluate the options and technologies responsible for making it more sustainable.
The COVID-19 pandemic heightened industry and mainstream conversations about how building systems operate and impact occupants. Tenants, guests and building owners have concerns and expectations which elevate indoor environmental quality (IEQ) alongside sustainability as critical differentiators for marketable, high-performance buildings.

On Demand Historic geographic weather patterns are shifting. The 100-year event has become common place; and virtually no place on the map is immune to such risks. When a utility disruption occurs, everyone expects the backup power system to start and run flawlessly as long as necessary, whether it’s for 30 minutes or 30 days. In light of these expanded and unpredictable risks, electrical power infrastructure and power backup system requirements must be reassessed.
On Demand Today’s engineers face increased pressure to deliver more efficient buildings, with tighter timelines and smaller budgets. Pumps have traditionally been a small part of the overall HVAC system, but with improved technology are key to maintaining the original design intention. Moving from field-built to packaged pumping systems simplifies specification, installation, operation, and maintenance.
On Demand The installation of generators is the most common solution for backup power. While the modern generator is highly reliable, the use of multiple generators for critical applications offers the ability to provide redundancy to allow for maintenance or failure. Moreover, paralleling systems provide the capability to increase total capacity while also ensuring uninterrupted backup power protection during maintenance or the failure of a single generator.
On Demand Modern construction requirements, increased interest in indoor air quality, sustainability and the rising cost of energy are driving adoption of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems in the United States and worldwide. As such, building owners, facility managers and project teams will be responsible for buildings where VRF systems are applied with complementary third-party HVAC equipment.
On Demand Once you have selected Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) as the HVAC technology for your next project, you need to consider how to control your system. Integrated controls provide benefits beyond HVAC system control, with the ability to integrate other technologies like a Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS). DOAS systems are designed to condition up to 100% of outdoor air year-round, reduce latent loads, enhance comfort and energy efficiency, and maintain your building’s indoor air quality.
On Demand Mission critical operations cannot be without power for one second. That’s why it’s imperative for facility managers to ensure they have adequate systems on-site to handle any and all power interruptions. Over the last 10 years, power technologies have changed significantly. This webinar will explore these changes.
On Demand Redundancy is a vital aspect to consider when evaluating system infrastructure on a medical campus with critical care facilities. A detailed phasing plan and sequence of operations can be key to a successful project. In this presentation, we’ll examine the importance of these factors through a recently completed central emergency power plant (CEPP) project on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).
