Professional Education Seminar (PES)
Topic: Building Energy Modeling with an expert panel that includes energy modeling experts, design engineers and a commissioning agent and offers 2.5 PDH credits

The Value of Energy Modeling

Modeling is critical to HOK's mission and a key tool in maintaining the firm's global standing as a high-performance leader. HOK sees modeling as a mechanism for shifting investment from a building's active, mechanical systems to its passive, architectural elements, benefiting not only energy-efficiency, but also durability and aesthetics. Building energy modeling (BEM) is not a traditional ECM as it doesn't directly save energy. However, by guiding selection and combination of direct ECMs, BEM is actually one of the most cost-effective ECMs. This presentation highlights the ROI of BEM, testimonials from project managers who use BEM to great effect and review options and resources for engaging with BEM early and often, and case studies of BEM application.

The Development of RAPMOD and its Application in Buildings

RAPMOD is a new wearable technology developed by UC Berkeley and Indoor Reality using ARPAe funding. RAPMOD is worn like a backpack and allows the user to walk through a building to collect essential energy-related data. From this walk-through, the system collects data required for an energy model of the building using laser scanners, infrared scanners and cameras and converts these data into .idf format for use in EnergyPlus. The energy model includes the geometry of interior and exterior surfaces, window U-values, lighting levels, equipment levels and occupancy for each room. RAPMOD will be extended to include HVAC recognition in a subsequent phase of development. The main goal is to reduce the cost and skill level required to create energy simulation models for deep retrofit assessments, energy audits and retro commissioning for existing buildings through rapid and accurate energy model creation. The presentation will also describe the testing of this technology and the applications such as the Smart Energy Assessment Calculator (SEAC) that can be used in conjunction with the data received to quickly benchmark a building, model efficiency measures and understand what savings these would provide.

Speaker and Moderator Biographies

Drury Crawley, Ph. D., FASHRAE, BEMP, FIBPSA, AIA - Bentley Systems

[http://nccashrae.org/images/dru.jpg]Dru Crawley is Bentley Fellow and Director, Building Performance focusing on building performance, design, BIM, energy efficiency, renewable energy, net-zero-energy buildings, interoperability, sustainability and resilience. Before joining Bentley in 2010, he developed, launched and managed EnergyPlus development and the USDOE's Commercial Buildings Initiative (now Better Buildings Initiative and Alliances) promoting creation of low- and net-zero-energy buildings. He has more than 35 years of experience in building performance, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainability. He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland where his doctoral thesis focused on building simulation as a policy tool, looking at the potential impact of climate change on the built environment. He has a Bachelor of Architecture from University of Tennessee and is a registered architect.

Dr. Crawley is an active member in ASHRAE (Fellow in 2009; Exceptional Service Award in 2013; BEMP certification in 2012 and member and chair of numerous technical and standards committees), USGBC, IBPSA, AIA, and CIBSE. He has published more than 125 papers and articles, testified before the U.S. Congress, lectured at more than 20 universities, and made more than 400 presentations on building performance, energy efficiency, sustainability, and renewable energy throughout the world.

Dinner Presentation
Topic: ASHRAE Headquarters Renovation

-Speaker: Ronald E. Jarnagin

When ASHRAE decided to renovate their aging headquarters building it was faced with the challenge of trying to live up to their reputation as a leader in the built environment. There were many opinions about what should be done and a small committee was formed to serve as the owner's representatives to oversee the renovation.  This presentation will focus on the process we followed, what we decided and why, what went wrong and what went right, lessons learned, actual costs of the project and actual measured energy savings achieved.  You will find this presentation both entertaining and educational! See you there!
