About the Maryland Chapter

What is IBPSA? And why did we start a Maryland chapter?


IBPSA is the International Building Performance Simulation Association. There is a United States regional affiliate (called IBPSA-USA), and IBPSA-Maryland is an officially-recognized affiliate of that organization.

The mission of IBPSA-USA is to advance and promote the science of building simulation in order to improve the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of new and existing buildings in the United States. 

Locally, we recognize that there is a growing community of building performance modelers. This includes consulting engineers, architects, energy service contractors, researchers, and academics who all have interest in some aspect of building simulation. Our goal is to provide networking and educational opportunities for interested professionals in this region.


Membership in the Maryland Chapter is free, but we do encourage people to join IBPSA-USA. The membership dues for IBPSA USA are currently $45 per year, or $10 per year for student members. Our technical meetings and networking events are open to anyone, and we offer live webinars for remote viewing when possible.
