About the Program

Category: County Resiliency (Best in Category)

Year: 2022

The Montgomery County, Department of General Services (DGS) has developed and implemented a Monitoring Based Commissioning (MBCx) Program across three (3) large energy-consuming County buildings, the Executive Office Building, Judicial Center, and Judicial Center, collectively referred to as the “Rockville Campus.” MBCx is a building energy efficiency activity that utilizes software tools that collect and analyze data from existing building automation systems (BAS) to identify no/low-cost energy conservation measures that when implemented will deliver verifiable energy savings that persist over time. The efforts achieved by the MBCx program as implemented by Montgomery County achieved cost-effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve occupant comfort and productivity, extend the useful life of HVAC equipment, and achieve meaningful energy reductions. This initial three-building pilot has established best practices that are being used to expand the program across the County’s largest energy-consuming buildings.
