Coffee will be provided. Attendees are responsible for their own lunch. There will be a lunch break, and there are numerous restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood.
Training Fee: $896
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.
The training includes real life examples to illustrate the value of energy modeling. Attendees are engaged through multiple quizzes followed by group discussion of the answers. Attendees do not need to bring a laptop to the training.
The training targets professionals with architectural and engineering backgrounds who would like to develop or enhance their energy modeling skills, get working knowledge of ASHRAE Standard 90.1, improve their ability to review modeling-based submittals, or work with modelers more effectively on a team. The training also helps prepare for the ASHRAE Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP) certification.
Four years of experience in commercial building design, operation, maintenance, or related fields, or equivalent education. Familiarity with the ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and some experience with the building energy modeling. Please also refer to the Preparation section below.
Articulate applications of energy modeling to analyzing existing buildings
Utilize eQUEST Wizard and Detailed Data Edit modes to model existing conditions for energy analysis of retrofit project
Perform model calibration to utility bills
Evaluate retrofit options using eQUEST Energy Efficiency Measure Wizard and Parametric Runs
Interpret eQUEST Summary and Detailed Reports
1) Attendees must have a laptop computer with eQUEST v 3.65 installed and working. eQUEST is free and can be downloaded here. You must have administrator privileges on your computer to install the software, thus we may not be able to help you do it at the training. Please contact us at least a week prior to the training if you need help installing eQUEST.
2) For remote attendees, the use of 2 monitors is highly encouraged to simulate the in-class experience. This will allow you to view the presenter's screen on one monitor, and use the second monitor to follow along with the exercises.
3) We recommend that you bring and use a mouse instead of using the laptop touchpad when working on the modeling exercise
4) We encourage attendees who are new to eQUEST to go over the eQUEST Introductory Tutorial prior to the training.
