E101-02 eQuest 3.65 Energy Modelling Training

An increasing number of provincial laws and city by-laws, as well as professional energy standards and rating systems are requiring the use of building energy simulation programs to verify energy and dollar savings for both high performance new facility design projects and existing building retrofits. This course covers the essentials of building energy modeling and explains how to use modeling to guide design decisions. It provides modeling tips related to the building envelope, plug loads, lighting systems, and HVAC systems. Attendees will gain a clear, in-depth understanding of the theory and practice of building energy modeling, and will also have the opportunity for hands-on building simulation experience during the seminar.

Course Outline:

• Introduction to Building Energy Modeling
