On June 6th on a beautiful summer day in downtown Madison, the IBPSA-USA Wisconsin Chapter hosted their second speaker event at the Strang office in the newly erected...

The Building Technologies Office (BTO) recently issued an article on the reasons why the timing of energy efficiency matters – we build electricity systems to meet peak demand, generation resources are economically dispatched, and the social cost of...

States invest in energy efficiency largely because it is a low-cost resource that can displace the need for traditional supply-side investments including electricity generation and transmission and distribution (T&D). Regulators and utilities account for costs and benefits using cost-effectiveness tests that inform utility and regulatory decision making about...

With support and funding from the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Building Technologies Office at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)...

 

Sustainable energy, building performance and refrigeration technologies were just some of the topics of great interest as HVAC&R professionals from around the world exchanged knowledge at the 2019 ASHRAE Annual Conference in Kansas City, Mo. More than 1,600 individuals attended this year’s conference.

The five-day conference included eight...

In a prior blog post, we discussed why energy efficiency is a critical component to DOE’s Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEB) vision. Beyond saving energy and money, GEBs can be more responsive to electric grid conditions and...

Ask a Modeler is a new monthly advice and discussion column in the IBPSA-USA newsletter, think Dear Abby for energy modelers.  We want to hear all your interesting, entertaining, or just plain odd questions about life and building performance simulation. Each month, we will match an interesting user submitted question to a selected expert to get their unique take.  We...

Project StaSIO’s 2019 competition to produce actionable simulation graphics is now open, with winners to be announced at ASHRAE Building Performance Analysis...
