ATLANTA ‘ ASHRAE’s Energy Modeling Conference, Oct. 1-3, 2012, Atlanta, Ga., seeks to advance the practitioner’s ability to more 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 addresses a variety of programs and applications, such as daylighting, 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,” Dennis Knight, chair of the conference, said. ‘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.”
