Dear Colleagues,

After an incredibly successful turnout of over 50 people to the inaugural
meeting in September, I am pleased to announce the details for our second
meeting. We are privileged to have Adrian Tuluca of Viridian Energy give a
presentation on advanced as well as simplified methods of simulating heat
flow analysis for building envelopes. Perhaps more interestingly, he will
discuss the accuracy of both methods and when it is appropriate to use each
of them.

Technical Committees will also meet for the first time at this meeting
(8PM). The "Building Modeling" technical committee - headed by Michael
Waite and Mike Karpman - will act as a forum for all types of building
modeling & software. There is the potential for this group to organize
trainings and workshops for eQUEST and other software of interest.
Additionally, the "Real Building Performance" technical committee - headed
by Chris Benedict - will seek to compare actual performance to model
performance. There is the potential for this committee to organize tours of
actual buildings as well as analyze case studies of efficient buildings.

Details of the upcoming meeting are below and can be found at
