Best Practices and Innovation

Federal personnel are required to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the “Ten Steps to Operational Efficiency” FEMP O&M Best Practices Guide Rev 3.0 pg 291.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of (DOE/PNNL) “Retuning Project” and how it could be applied (Re-tuning is intended to provide building operators, building managers and energy service providers with the necessary skills to identify low-cost and no-cost operational problems that plague commercial buildings and provide the skills necessary to take corrective action.).
  • Demonstrate knowledge of and ability to perform “predictive maintenance” (Predictive maintenance attempts to detect the onset of a degradation mechanism with the goal of correcting that degradation prior to significant deterioration in the component or equipment.) FEMP O&M Best Practices Release 3.0 pg 5.9.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of ALL types of commissioning and what is required in the Energy Independence and Security Act 2007 (EISA).
  • Demonstrate knowledge of metering and sub-metering for energy and water and how they contribute to systems optimization.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of O&M Frontiers like those found in FEMP O&M Best Practices Guide Rev 3.0 pg 287.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of advanced troubleshooting techniques on a systems-wide basis.
