USGBC Event: Energy Modeling for the Design Phase and Beyond

Energy Modeling for the Design Phase and Beyond (1.5 GBCI & AIA hours) hosted by the USGBC - Illinois Chapter!

Date: 03 Nov 2011 
Time: 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM
Location: Cannon Design, 111 W. Washington, Suite 2100, Chicago, IL 

Program Description:

Join USGBC - Illinois Chapter's Chicago Branch for an education session on Energy Modeling! Earn 1.5 GBCI CE hours and 1.5 AIA HSW/SD units (Project Systems & Energy Impacts).

This program will focus on the energy modeling process during the design phase through building occupancy.  Using the energy model as a tool for design purposes, measurement and verification, as well as quantifying energy conservation measures will be presented.  Emphasis will be placed on integrating the energy model into the design development process so that the tool is used to verify and quantify energy efficient design strategies developed by the design team.  Important variables the design team must be aware of during the design process will be outlined to ensure energy performance of the building is optimized.  In addition, methodologies for integrating energy modeling into building operations during occupancy through measurement and verification and quantification of energy conservation measures will be explained.  Case studies detailing new construction energy models as well as existing building energy models will be reviewed with the audience.  These case studies will review modeling techniques as well as modeling software (eQuest, BIM) through a "live" model example.
