IBPSA-USA Education On Demand
The predominant tool for 2D heat transfer analysis is THERM which has a toilsome interface for drafting and post-processing façade details.
Eric Mannarino from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) will discuss energy storage systems, DER, and decarbonization, along with its involvement in the uti
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ASHRAE, REHVA, and other industry authorities have published a ton of information on how to maintain occupant health and safety in buildings....
NREL’s REopt™ software provides concurrent, multiple technology integration and optimization capabilities to help organizations meet their cost savings and energy performance goals.
This Research Committee seminar will introduce an open-source, free software package that provides practical, end-to-end (from the IT equipment, to heat rejection, to the ambient) modeling and optimization for data center cooling.
Please join us as we revive monthly meetings for the Boston-area building simulation community. The first meeting of 2020 will take place over video conferencing, and we look forward to transitioning to in-person gatherings when it is safe to do so.
Engineers are responsible for helping design systems that can save energy and water, and use resources wisely to help propel our world to a more sustainable future. But what happens after the construction crews leave?
This video has been made free to view for all. In this Education Committee webinar, Eric Mannarino from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)
Energy modeling is often only associated with new construction projects with high sustainability aspirations.
Please join the the IBPSA-USA Wisconsin Chapter for their online quarter 2 event as their technical association will take on the current event of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) as it relates to transmission, prevention, HVAC design, and building performance.
Advances in simulation techniques and computing power, coupled with more progressive goals for decarbonization in buildings, have propelled urban-scale simulation to the fore over the past decade. (
This was an IBPSA-USA hosted webinar for our sponsor Trane. TRACE 3D Plus is a next generation building design and analysis software program that delivers faster, more accurate results through a seamless workflow that closely aligns with today's building process. Built on the U.S.
As we all know, occupants are modeled in very simple ways in building simulation environments. This comes with two risks: 1) inaccurate predictions, and 2) poor decision-making that is informed by these inaccurate predictions.

How do I judge the content of a paper on a subject I’m not familiar with? How can I give constructive feedback to improve a paper’s quality? When should I reject a paper? This Research Committee presentation will cover best practices for reviewing conference and journal papers.

Presentation 1: Advancing codes and standards to meet evolving needs and BEM implications
Building performance simulations are a critical tool for designing buildings that meet our urgent sustainability goals. Yet they are only effective if they can communicate results and conclusions that align with the environmental, economic and social aspirations of the project.
Research into the next generation of simulation tools and techniques is being carried out at universities, but much of this information is not transferred to the practitioners.
Join the Passive House Alliance Chicago as they take a deep dive into the historic Chicago residential market and explore what it takes to transform an 1890s balloon framed residence into a fully compliant PHIUS+ 2018 certified home.
This Research Committee talk will provide a background on Electrochromic (EC) Glazing and new ways of modeling and analyzing its performance. Specifically, multi-zone EC glazings provide additional operational flexibility and occupant benefits.

Presentation 1: An Intro into Adaptive Thermal Comfort
Presenter: Gail Brager
Achieving substantial energy savings in existing building stocks is typically a result of accurate energy audits followed by retrofitting design and applications.
The computational tools that architects use to design buildings often provide static representations of built environments, which do not account for the people who will inhabit the spaces and their dynamic activities.
