Training Description

This sixteen hour (2 day) hands-on training develops the technical skills necessary for modeling commercial and multifamily buildings in eQUEST following requirements of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 2016 Appendix G, as used in NYS ECCC 2016, ENERGY STAR Multifamily High-Rise Program (ESMFHR), Enterprise Green Communities, LEED NC v4 Pilot Credit (former Energy and Atmosphere Credit 1 and Prerequisite 2), and various other programs for green buildings.

The case study involves a mixed use multifamily building, and covers the new and impactful requirements of 90.1 2016 Appendix G, their application to common designs, the efficient work flow, productivity tips, and quality control and troubleshooting. Use of the reporting template adopted by ESMFHR that can also be used for the LEED Pilot Credit will be covered.

Target Audience

The training targets professionals with architectural, engineering, or construction backgrounds who would like to develop or enhance their energy modeling skills, and understanding of the new version of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 Appendix G, in order to develop energy models for programs such as LEED NC v4, ESMFHR, or various incentive programs, to review energy model submittals to these programs. or work with modelers more effectively on a team. The training also helps prepare for the ASHRAE Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP) certification.

Learning Objectives


1) Bring a laptop computer that has eQUEST installed. eQUEST is free and can be downloaded here. Note that this training uses version 3.65 of eQUEST. We encourage attendees who are new to eQUEST to go over the eQUEST Introductory Tutorial prior to the training.

You must have admin privileges on your computer in order to install the software. It will greatly streamline the training if you ensure that the software is installed and working.

In addition to personal laptops, in-class attendees are encouraged to bring their own mouse to optimize their energy modeling training experience.

For remote attendees, the use of 2 monitors is highly encouraged to simulate the in-class experience as best a possible. It is recommended that one monitor be dedicated as the presenter's screen while the second monitor act as attendee's working energy model.

2) It will be helpful to have the paper or electronic copy of ASHRAE 90.1 2013 and Standard 90.1 Appendix G 2013 Excerpts, or ASHRAE 90.1 2016.
