Introduction to BACnet®

This course helps students understand some of the elements required to successfully plan for BACnet® and some complex issues that must be addressed to achieve interoperability for a wide range of building systems besides HVAC.

BACnet® is critical to creating Smart Buildings. This ASHRAE protocol allows mechanical, electrical, plumbing, solar and other building systems to communicate on a common network to implement strategies such as NetZero or utility Real Time Pricing. This data helps to keep the building running at peak performance to ensure that the building continues to be NetZero and 90.1 compliant in the long term. 

Buildings have a role in decarbonizing the power grid and managing their carbon budget.  Real-time energy and power data from BACnet-compliant devices can also maximize carbon reduction through a building’s interaction with the electric power grid.
