This course provides you with an understanding of the energy auditing process and focuses on how energy modeling can be used to provide accurate information to decision-makers. The goal of energy modeling for energy audits is to help make informed decisions about implementing energy efficiency improvements.
This part provides an explanation of why a full energy simulation is utilized for many energy audits, and identifies the goals of the energy modeling process.
This part discusses the key parts of the energy model, which are most important for accuracy, and how to simplify the model.
This part discusses the importance of calibrating the energy model, the general do’s and don’ts which are most important for accuracy, and what type of results we are looking for. This section of the course overlaps with the course titled “Matching Existing Models” which covers this topic in much more detail than described here.
This part describes the process of modeling each different energy reduction recommendation. Once we have an accurate and calibrated energy model, we start getting results of how much energy we can expect to save.
This part discusses how to explain the results of the energy modeling. Each different energy reduction recommendation will be described in a report and assigned some economic feasibility numbers. This is how all of our work will be presented in a useable format for others to make important investment decisions.
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?
