I think we lost Jeremy, or is it just me?

Carlos, how has shifting to remote auditing affected accuracy and uncertainty of your building performance data?
Carlos, are energy end-use data available to show which services systems are being well-controlled during partial occupancy, and which aren't?
why less capacity if there are less people in the buildings
COVID third infection route is aerosoles, to reduse infection risk it is advised to keep the ventilation at the highest possible level and avoid any recirculation without HEPA filter use
Chun Ping Gao
some studies suggest the decrease of energy during covid is similar to the decrease of energy consumption during weekends. do you see this trend in your data?
Hey Malcolm, long time no see! Unfortunately not that I know of, but I'll check with some stakeholders and let you know
Great questions. We’ll circle back to all that we can during the Q&A. Keep them coming!
See you, everyone. Thanks to David, Alison, Malcolm and the DoE + EBC crew for the invite! :)
Valarie: thanks, very interesting and you were ahead of the times. When you say that the City might allow photos, does that mean instead of video, or only in addition to video? If instead of video, what factors gave the City/inspectors comfort that a situation was appropriate for photos-only?
Can the participants get the slides after the session?
Yes. We will post them to the EBC website, along with the recording. Thank you!
if the state was locked down, I presume new building work was not happening. what was being inspected? annual certifications?
Valerie, I would expect increased errors at 50 inspections per day (maybe a significant increase?). How have your QA processes had to change in the new normal?
My apologies, I have to get to a meeting. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.
