Resilient World Institute (RWI) E101 eQuest 3.65 Energy Modelling Training (2 days)

Understanding the technology solutions needed for a sustainable future

Course Description:

An increasing number of provincial laws and city by-laws, as well as professional energy standards and rating systems are requiring the use of building energy simulation programs to verify energy and dollar savings for both high performance new facility design projects and existing building retrofits. This course covers the essentials of building energy modeling and explains how to use modeling to guide design decisions. It provides modeling tips related to the building envelope, plug loads, lighting systems, and HVAC systems. Attendees will gain a clear, in-depth understanding of the theory and practice of building energy modeling, and will also have the opportunity for hands-on building simulation experience during the seminar.

Course Presenter: Afzal Siddique has over 25 years of multi-disciplinary experience in HVAC systems design and manufacturing, energy modelling, and building energy systems commissioning. He is a proven engineering manager and technical communicator with expertise in performance optimization, remediation, and field performance monitoring with a focus in strategic green building design. Afzal's professional profile.
