The ASHRAE Journal has at least two detailed articles in the past ~6 months comparing these.  The first was by Steve Taylor and included many considerations for controls and design differences.  The second was a case study of a large building somewhere in Asia (I think).
Sorry I can’t give specific references – I’m about to depart for the day.

Subject: [Bldg-sim] Chilled beam Vs conventional VAV systems

Hi all,

I have modeled chilled beams and conventional VAV systems for an office building. I am getting 28% lower annual energy consumption with chilled beams.

Has anyone done similar comparison? I would like to confirm if such energy savings are achievable with chilled beams??

Thanks and Regards,
