Technical Description

The ERS was established for the purposes of examining various energy-efficiency measures and demonstrating innovative heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) concepts. The ERS is unique in that it allows for dynamic testing of an entire system within a controlled environment. The facility has laboratory-testing capabilities combined with real building characteristics and is capable of simultaneously testing two full-scale commercial building systems side-by-side with identical thermal loadings and control schemes.
