Retro-commissioning programs have traditionally focused on larger customers, such as universities, hospitals and organizations with full energy efficiency budgets and dedicated facilities staff. Retro-commissioning projects typically require lengthy, complex meetings, procedures and expensive technical engineering services making it difficult for utilities to engage small/medium size businesses with limited resources. However, with the right training, EE professionals will be able to provide customer support throughout the process.
