Attend the June Building Energy Simulation Forum

Join Energy Trust on June 17, 2015, for the Building Energy Simulation Forum. Shem Heiple, a mechanical engineer for Interface Engineering, and Amy Jarvis, a sustainable design analyst with ZGF Architects, will explore the use of Virtual Environment by Integrated Environmental Solutions, IES-VE, for early-stage energy analysis and design feedback.

The presenters will also discuss applying IES-VE as a design tool for HVAC load calculations, energy use and energy performance verification and documentation. Sample projects will be presented with comparisons to eQuest and other modeling tools.
