The article focuses on performance monitoring systems in commercial and institutional buildings. Performance monitoring systems are primarily used to assess the current and historical performance of a building and its energy-consuming systems and components. Performance monitoring involves a large number of monitoring points, improved sensors and through-system accuracy. Its benefits include the tracking of electricity and natural gas use by time of day and identifying unnecessary equipment.
