Since more and more builders and building owners are requiring minimum energy efficiency performance, more and more engineers are deciding they need to get on board by developing a better understanding of how to harness technology in advance of construction to ensure energy savings are achieved. It would be nice if they could look at […]
This 1 hour course will introduce you to the booming Energy Modeling industry, giving insight into what energy modeling can do for you as well as clear up many common misconceptions.
Software tools make it possible to consider all the interior and exterior elements that influence energy consumption.
This course provides an introduction to energy simulation and its relevance to green buildings. It will cover all major strategiesthat typical energy simulation software can represent. It will discuss how professionals can apply energy modeling to projects, anddefine the point in a project when energy simulation should be considered. You will learn to analyze modeling […]
This course will examine the background of energy modeling, the importance and drivers of energy simulation, energy efficiency strategies and how they are modeled using the latest technologies and the process of simulating energy performance. We will also highlight the LEED v4 credits and ASHRAE requirements related to energy modeling.
Data from an initiative to make architecture more sustainable shows progress, but there’s still a long way to go to make a dent in climate-change risks. For the fifth year running, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) has crunched the numbers on its national sustainability challenge, the AIA 2030 Commitment. Architects who sign up pledge […]
A Senator from Maine said that we should reject fossil fuels completely and embrace green energy. Hearing such a comment from any member of the government is very promising, as it shows that some people in our government realize that climate change is a very real issue that we need to address. We cannot embrace […]
