Today is the final day of the 2012 ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conference.
ASHRAE and HVAC industry specialists have traveled from all over to Atlanta to attend panels on topics such as “Lessons Learned from Energy Modeling for LEED Projects”, “Optimizing Energy Performance in Higher Education”, “High Performance Buildings”, “Codes and Standards”, and much more!
ASHRAE aims to advance attendees’ abilities to accurately model and simulate a building’s energy use through some 40 presentations, keynote speeches, networking, and a modeling tools software developer session. The conference has and will address a variety of programs and applications, such as variable refrigerant flow, thermal bridging, labyrinth ventilation systems, ground source heat pumps, dedicated outdoor air systems, and hybrid systems.
“The ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conference: Tools for Designing High Performance Buildings, addresses the most pressing issues facing modelers and those responsible for modeling in their companies,” said Dennis Knight, chair of the conference. “Attendees at this, the second ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conference, will benefit by networking with other modelers and software developers and by the numerous hands-on modeling presentations, including case studies, updates on ASHRAE standards and codes, and current tools available in the marketplace, their applications and workarounds.”
The next big conference, 2012 ASHRAE/NIST Refrigerants Conference: Moving Towards Sustainability, will take place at the end of this month.
