The Weather Out There

All energy models depend on accurate weather data.  So in a changing climate, what is accurate?  This Colorado-centric discussion covers:

  • Measured data sets such as TMY and AMY data
  • Computer simulated weather data
  • Interpreting weather data - confidence versus skepticism
  • State of weather software tools and future climate and weather data
  • Colorado Front Range weather and design day trends

Linda Morrison is the Building Performance Team Leader of Ambient Energy, a sustainable design and energy consulting firm celebrating 15 years.  As part of her commitment to developing the industry, she has spoken at Greenbuild, AIA, and I2SL national conferences, local conferences, and as an instructor for the  AIA+2030 Challenge series presenting “Right-Sized: Equipment and Controls for Super-Efficiency Buildings.”

Research into the next generation of simulation tools and techniques is being carried out at universities, but much of this information is not transferred to the practitioners. For this SimClub event, graduate students from the University of Colorado-Boulder and the Colorado School of Mines will give short summaries of their current research projects.

Matt Duffy from Affiliated Engineers Inc. (AEI) will present on using the TRNSYS simulation software that has been publicly available for over 40 years and continues to use a modular, component-based structure to solve energy systems.

August 17, 2017

Dr. Peter Lilienthal will discuss how the HOMER software tool works and use it to illustrate some examples of what microgrids look like both on- and off-grid. There will also be additional discussion about what it has taken to license software out of NREL and grow a business around it, as well as Dr.
