Attendees will learn how energy modeling software tools can help identify specific energy saving opportunities for both old and new buildings. Energy modeling uses a sophisticated software tool to re-create building systems in a simulated environment. The simulation displays the building's systems and their interactions to show how the building is currently operating and demonstrates how the systems affect energy performance. Once the model is complete and verified, users can virtually run the building on the software. This provides a powerful resource for making infrastructure changes in a virtual environment and testing a variety of solutions to determine which would function best in the building.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn how to use and apply modeling tools methods and practices
2. Learn from success stories of how modeling was used to achieve high performance building results
3. Gain insights on what's required to set up an energy modeling system and learn how to perform a high-level cursory review of possible energy savings
4. Understand the factors that affect possible savings regarding the efficiency and health of existing building systems

Audience: Intermediate
