BuildingSync Enhancements and Mapping
HECS has been supporting the National Renewable Energy Laboratory with efforts to align its standard XML schema for organizing energy audit data with related Federal Government data platforms, including the Commercial Building Energy Asset Score, Building Energy Data Exchange Specification (BEDES), eProjectBuilder, and the Federal Compliance Tracking System (CTS). HECS has also developed several mapping protocols for converting BuildingSync XML files to or from import templates for these platforms.
Residential HVAC Controls Survey
HECS conducted a survey of residential building controls technology for Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The study was focused on controls related to heating, cooling, and ventilation systems (HVAC), covering recent trends, opportunities, and challenges in the residential sector.
