KC offers several training webinars scheduled on the use of energy modeling for compliance with ASHRAE 90.1. This includes the following trainings:

#110: Performance-Based Compliance with ASHARE Standard 90.1 2016 (8 hours) #210: Compliance Documentation for ASHRAE 90.1 Section 11 and...

As the stringency of energy codes and above code programs continues to increase, more projects are seeking to comply using the performance approach based on whole-building energy modeling rather than prescriptive compliance. To support this shift in compliance practices, it is imperative that:

Energy modelers have a high level of competence Energy modeling software...
