IBPSA-USA Project StaSIO
Request for Qualifications
DEADLINE: January 31, 2022
The new ASHRAE Standard 209 provides a framework to integrate early energy modeling into the design process, and Project StaSIO provides supporting content through graphics and case studies which exemplify an avenue to communicate simulation results to designers that facilitates understanding and decision making. The vision of this project is to create a diverse library of different types of graphic outputs and provide resources for the simulation community to learn data visualization best practices and share their insights on communicating data to inform the design process.
Through previous U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funding (FY20 and FY21), The StaSIO team has been successful in setting up a self-sustaining project website which provides a framework to engage the simulation community through regular recurring ‘Challenges’. Much of the feedback StaSIO has received over the last few years has been the desire from the community to not only get inspired by impactful ways to communicate simulation data graphically, but to learn the ropes on how to distill data to create a communicative graphic. Through FY22 funding the project team would like to grow StaSIO into a Knowledge Hub to provide resources for training and knowledge development.
Funding is provided by the U.S. DOE, and the anticipated budget for this scope of work is $10,000 to $12,500.
