Energy Modeling Best Practices and Applications - Two-Part Course




October 2 - 4, 2018

The course covers the fundamentals of building energy modeling and explains how to use modeling to guide design decisions, with an emphasis on HVAC. Course participants will learn how to integrate modeling into the design process from the programming stage through post-occupancy and measurement and verification. The course explains modeling principles and provides modeling tips related to the building envelope, plug loads, lighting systems, and HVAC systems. The course discusses valuable quality control steps and compelling methods for presenting results. Also described is the appropriate use of modeling throughout the project life cycle and life-cycle cost analysis. The course concludes with guidance on model calibration and the use of energy models for measurement and verification. Case studies and links to valuable modeling resources are included.

This ALI course/seminar may be a suitable resource to help prepare for a Certification exam or earn PDHs for recertification.

(This course is comprised of two parts. Registrants must attend both parts in order to receive PDH credits.) 
Part 1: Tuesday, October 2, 2018 – 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm EDT
Part 2: Thursday, October 4, 2018 – 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm EDT
