As with any technology, the tools used for energy modeling are evolving every day. There are building design and energy modeling software programs that could significantly streamline workflows and help professionals in furthering your commitment to sustainable, environmentally-friendly design.
Join Microsol Resources and EDSL and hear about the background on the role of energy modeling throughout the design process, baseline best practices, and suggestions on how designers and engineers can take a leading role in the energy discussion, from a project’s conceptual design to post-occupancy. As you’re working on higher-performing buildings and lower-energy buildings, this webinar will offer you some recommendations and an opportunity to drive design decisions.
Get an update on how to meet the American Institute of Architects’ 2030 Commitment, a national initiative that calls for all new buildings, developments and major renovations to be carbon-neutral by 2030. The webinar will also explain how architects can offer energy modeling as both a value-added service as well as an ongoing service.
In this webinar, you will hear from Robert Yori and Michael Sawford of EDSL about the following aspects of Tas, their building energy modeling software:
- 3D Modeler | For creating building models for simulation & performing daylight analysis.
- Building Simulator | For adding apertures, internal gains, constructions and performing a dynamic simulation.
- Results Viewer | For storing, viewing and exporting 2D and 3D hourly results.
- Systems | Powerful HVAC modeler for calculating actual energy consumption based on the demands predicted by the Building Simulator.
- Utilities | Tas Engineering comes with a multitude of utilities that link together the various core aspects of the software to perform specific tasks.
Microsol Resources is an Approved Provider through the AIA/CES and will provide a Certificate of Completion for 1 AIA LU/HSW and PDH for this seminar.
