Energy Modelling Processes And Methodology For The Built Environment

Professional energy modeling for buildings requires an understanding of how to model in uncertain environments (such as buildings under design) as well as knowledge of software tools and techniques to create energy models. In this hands-on, computer-based 18-hour workshop, participants will learn the methodology of using energy modelling as a design tool while gaining practical experience using various modeling technologies for the built environment. Develop your understanding of energy inputs, including how to ask the right kinds of questions, perform parametric analysis, interpret results, and effectively communicate your findings. This course is designed for professionals working in the built environment – architects, engineers, cost accountants, consultants and project managers – as well as those seeking a career in energy modeling. It will enable participants to effectively use energy as a construct for building design and development. This four-session course takes place over two Thursdays (6:30 – 9:30 p.m.) and two Saturdays (9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) from June 6 to June 15, 2013 at UBC Robson Square, 800 Granville Street, Vancouver.
