RESCHEDULED: May 16, 2019 | 12pm-1pm | 1 LU/HSW credit
This course covers the results of five energy modeling case studies based on the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) report “Climate change and the indoor environment: impacts and adaptation” and the NYSERDA New Construction Program (NCP) Simulation Guidelines.

Five different building typologies were modeled with baseline code-compliant systems and with as-designed energy conservation methods and tested against each other.  The baseline and upgraded models were tested and compared to understand the design changes on energy usage, demand, operating costs, and SOx/Nox/CO2 emissions.
