Integrating Energy Analysis in the High Performance Design Process



Online Webinar / AIA SF - 130 Sutter St. Suite 600, San Francisco, California 94104

November 19, 2019

Effective integration of energy simulation in the design process is not yet standard practice. Making the jump to performance guided design can be challenging for both designers and energy analysts without experience. In this presentation Erik Kolderup will discuss ASHRAE Standard 209-2018 Energy Simulation Aided Design, which provides guidance for integrating energy analysis in the design of nonresidential buildings. The new AIA guide Integrating Performance Simulation in the Design Process references Std 209 and describes how to simplify the process of integrating performance modeling into design by defining minimum requirements for providing energy design simulation and analysis at different stages of design. The program will also feature a local architect discussing how their firm has used energy modeling to support design.

A Live Webinar is available for those unable to attend the event in person

Date & TIme: Tuesday, November 19, 2019; 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
