Advanced RTU control retrofits offer the potential for incredible energy savings and may include other benefits as well including demand response, fault detection and diagnostics, and improved thermal comfort in the right applications.

Experts from stakeholder organizations across the market will join the Advanced RTU Campaign to present on the Barriers and Solutions to RTU Advanced Retrofit Controls incentives that utilities across the country are currently facing. 
- Michael Deru from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will introduce the Advanced RTU Campaign, including technical resources on existing utility incentives, as well as case studies and guidance documents on RTU replacements and retrofits. 
- Lauren Smith from the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) will present on the buildings program at SWEEP and goals for commercial utility programs in the region. 
- Mary Horsey from E Source will describe results from utility pilot testing of RTU control devices and how the utility structures its incentive programs 
- Danny Miller from Transformative Wave will provide examples of challenges and effective solutions for advanced RTU control retrofit utility programs
