*Workshop Description*This two-day workshop is an excellent opportunity for
new users to become familiar with using version 5 of the *DesignBuilder*
software. One of the highlights of version 5 is the new capability of
automatically generating a baseline model for ASHRAE Standard 90.1, which
will be showcased at the end of the workshop. The workshop is structured to
give you plenty of hands-on exercises so you can ?learn by doing?, and no
previous experience with *EnergyPlus* is required.
