This course breaks down an eQUEST model and goes step by step through the LEED energy modeling process (LEED NC 2009). We'll model a building step by step and talk about how to do things the 'LEED' way and how to reduce those pesky review comments. The case study starts with design documents and ends with eQUEST reports to submit to LEED.

This course breaks down an eQUEST LEED model and goes step by step through the LEED energy modeling process. We'll model a building step by step and talk about how to do things the 'LEED' way and how to reduce those dreaded review comments. Starts with design documents and end with eQUEST reports to submit to LEED.
We provide you everything to follow along step by step including: the building design, mechanicals, architecturals and .dwg building cad file. The ability to not only watch the process, but actually do the energy model yourself in eQUEST make this course an amazing learning tool. Follow along as we import the cad file into eQUEST, set up the building shell/draw the building and set up the energy model's zones. Then, we complete the baseline building (the specific example is per 90.1-2007 System 5)
Since we provide all the mechanical specs it's easy to follow along while we use the eQUEST navigator and component tree view to setup the systems. Watch as we go through a VAV, unit heater and heat pump systems and set up the equipment, then assign the zones.
We go through the rate structure set up and then move out of the design development wizard into eQUEST Detailed Mode. We discuss renaming eQUEST spaces using the eQUEST .inp file and our eQUEST space renamer. Next we show you how to create global parameters in eQUEST, using LPD (Lighting Power Densities) as an example and much more.
We go over how to finish up the building details, such as windows, doors, walls and glass types. Then we go through material and construction types set up in the detailed mode. We basically finish setting up the energy model in this section.
We finish off the energy model by setting the system specifics in this section. In this section we wrap up some fan details and pump details. Then we make sure our efficiencies are correct.
I want to thank you for the leed and equest course you gave on friday. Really useful. Of course there will be always more questions regarding Leed, eQUEST and ASHRAE and so on. But the course was really helpfull and full of quality information that will help me in my day to day modeling.
I just wanted to say I really enjoyed the webinar; it was very informative. The videos and cheat sheets are incredibly useful.
Once you sign up you will receive an email with a link to the course. You get the unlimited access to the downloads and video for the term of your subscription.
Once you sign up you get access to high quality full length training videos. Test your knowledge through quizzes and example problems. After you pass, show off your certificate.
Energy Models helps you build the skill set that will land you a great job or consulting gig, nail your LEED model, or sell your equipment. AND you get PDH's. What's not to love?
Energy-Models.com is a site for energy modelers, building simulators, architects, and engineers who want learn the basics, to advanced concepts of energy modeling. We've got online training courses and tutorials for eQUEST, Trane TRACE 700, OpenStudio, and LEED for energy modeling. All our energy modeling courses are video based. What better way to learn energy modeling software than screen-casts of exactly how things are done?
