Energy Modeling Training

Karpman Consulting offers a coordinated curriculum of eQUEST energy modeling training, designed to help students master the marketable skill.

We take a hands-on approach to energy modeling training. Most trainings feature extensive modeling exercises where attendees practice applying the theoretical concepts covered during the class.

We also believe in an incremental approach. Attendees are exposed to energy modeling in the introductory class (100-level), are given a foundation in the two day, 200-level classes, and are given the opportunity to build their skills and develop in-depth understanding in the 300-level intermediate and advanced classes.

We realize that no two attendees are alike, and our curriculum offers the flexibility to meet the needs of a variety of professionals. For example, those familiar with energy modeling concepts may wish to start with the 200-level class. Modelers with several years under their belts may choose to enroll in 300-level intermediate and advanced classes to build mastery and dig deeper.

We have developed a reputation for excellence in teaching and expertise in the field. Our trainings carry name recognition and are a reliable means to career advancement and professional growth for energy professionals.

Course Descriptions

Modeling 101: Energy Modeling for Code Compliance, High Performance Buildings, and Building Retrofits

Registration Fee: $329 ($132 with NYSERDA discount*)

This eight hour (1 day) training familiarizes building professionals including architects, engineers, building code officials, and administrators with the fundamental concepts of whole building energy simulation, the energy modeling protocols of ASHRAE Standard 90.1, and the various applications of energy modeling including design optimization, demonstrating compliance with energy code, LEED certification, incentive program participation, and documenting federal tax deductions for commercial buildings.

Modeling 201: eQUEST Energy Modeling for Existing Buildings

Registration Fee: $896 ($358 with NYSERDA discount*)

This sixteen hour (2 day) hands-on training develops the technical skills necessary for analyzing the energy performance of existing buildings through energy modeling, including model calibration to utility bills to improve the accuracy of projected savings from retrofits, and identifying cost effective energy conservation opportunities. The course will also cover related ASHRAE Standards and guidelines.

Modeling 202: eQUEST Energy Modeling for New Construction

Registration Fee: $801 ($320 with NYSERDA discount*)

This sixteen hour (2 day) hands-on training develops the technical skills necessary for modeling new commercial and multifamily buildings, including efficient work flow and productivity strategies, model quality control, and the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 Appendix G (used in LEED NC modeling).

Modeling 301: Intermediate HVAC Modeling in eQUEST

Registration Fee: $471 ($188 with NYSERDA discount*)

This eight hour (1 day) hands-on training will build on the foundation established by Modeling 201 or Modeling 202 above, to enhance attendee modeling skills beyond the beginner level. The focus will be on the most common HVAC systems and related energy efficiency measures. The training is applicable to modeling both new and existing buildings.

Modeling 302: Simulation Requirements of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 2007 / 2010 / 2013

Registration Fee: $471 ($188 with NYSERDA discount*)

This one-day training compares the energy modeling requirements of Standard 90.1 2007, 2010, and 2013. Jurisdictions and rating authorities such as LEED and NYSERDA are beginning to transition to the newer versions of the standard. As a result, it is important for professionals involved in new construction and major renovation projects to be familiar with all three versions of the code, including key differences between versions. This training provides that knowledge, with a focus on high impact areas and practical implications for projects.
