Pre-Greenbuild Workshop: Successful Energy Modeling for LEED Project
This is an intermediate level course and attendees should have energy modeling experience on at least one LEED project. The workshop goals are fourfold:
- You’ll have a more detailed understanding of the prevailing simulation tools, their capabilities, limitations and how (or when) to use them based on your project type. Supporting calculation tools will also be provided, streamlining your workflow.
- You’ll have a better understanding of the energy code (ASHRAE 90.1) and the critical parameters that have a significant impact on energy performance. This will help you avoid “surprise” changes to your baseline that adversely affect energy results.
- You’ll have a better understanding of the LEED review process and documentation requirements. This will help you cut the amount of time spent on costly post-review model updates.
- Implement the new modeling requirements in LEED V4 including ASHRAE 90.1- 2010 updates.
Specific topics include: “What’s new in v4; Generating custom performance curves” and many others – see the full list on the registration page. You can also contact The Green Engineer if you have specific questions about the content.
The workshop will be held on Tuesday, November 17th. Seating is limited so register early. Full day workshop pricing starts at $250. This workshop is worth 7 hours of continuing education credit.
See you there!
