ASHRAE Presents Energy Conference

September 24, 2012
ATLANTA — ASHRAE’s Energy Modeling Conference: Tools for Designing High Performance Buildings, Oct. 1-3, 2012, Atlanta, seeks to advance the practitioner’s ability to more accurately model and simulate a building’s energy use through presentations, keynote speeches, networking, and a modeling tools software developer session.

Conference highlights include calibrating existing building energy models — using a procedure to represent existing building energy use accurately and reliably — and a case study on retrofits; lessons learned from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) projects, featuring the top 10 mistakes that modelers make; a large-building session that shows how an extensive model was developed and includes techniques for editing the resultantly large data sets; a session that presents tools and techniques for contemporary systems, such as ground source heat pumps and variable refrigerant flow, which help to develop system components, performance curves, and operating characteristic libraries for use in the common whole-building simulation tools; and more.

The conference will host two keynote speakers, Daniel Nall and John Kennedy; and will feature a “Market Reality Session – Modeling Tools: What Works, What Doesn’t, and Workarounds.”
