ATLANTA, GA – ASHRAE’s Forum 11 looked to answer the query, “What Are the Requirements and Benefits of a Dynamically Controlled Building?”

Issues considered under this topic included adjusting indoor temperatures on an hourly basis, energy benefits achievable, possible comfort complaints, and taking advantage of real-time pricing.

A consultant from California said that, using demand limiting, you can save energy by shifting the set point in small increments. If you move slowly enough, people don’t notice the temperature change.

However, in the Midwest, one attendee said, a lot of leasing people are writing in specific temperature ranges for their buildings. He also doesn’t see real-time pricing being an issue at the present.

Overall, the perception is that a lot of people are skeptical about the potential savings with dynamically controlled buildings.
